The Ravagers #7 - Ghosts of Future Present
The return of Warblade and Rose Wilson!
Can the team finally act like a team — and survive?
Beast Boy deals with side effects from The Rot, and Caitlin asks Superboy the unthinkable!
She chose...poorly. Original Review by Grifter78 at Comic Vine
When I first saw there were four artists for the issue, I cringed. I love regular artist Ian Churchill's art so any time someone is brought in to take away from that, I automatically default to not liking it. However, I have been proven wrong like last issue where Tyler Kirkham assisted Churchill on art and it wasn't that bad. I was also hoping since this was his last issue that we'd get more of his art. The saving grace for this issue was the use of different artists as the story changed. They wisely did an art change when something significant in the story changed. This was a brilliant way to address having multiple artists and I applaud editorial for their foresight on that one.

Rose and Warblade is hard to resist. Will these two teams finally have a deciding clash over what it means to be a true Ravager, or will this epic battle end with a simper?
In this issue, a new player enters the arena and Fairchild’s Ravagers are either corrupted or killed.
Okay, I’m going to discuss something from this issue you will probably figure out if you have read many comics or you are fairly intelligent, but it technically comes in the back half, and I always try to avoid spoiling anything past the mid-point, so I am going to spoiler warning you on the next paragraph, but if you can see the obvious coming, there is really no reason not to read it.

What I Thought
See the Review Rating Overview page for more information on how I rate each comic.
Cover & Solicit - 4/5
Art, Colors & Inking - 3/5
Layout & Flow - 4/5
Story - 4/5
Verdict - 3.9
This series has been very good so far. I enjoy seeing some Wildstorm characters get some face time in the DCU. For those who read the solicit, lets just say I have no idea what they are talking about as final sentence doesn't make any sense. Again the problem with this issue as I hate to say is DC changing the artist over and over in an issue. Joe didn't seem to find it distracting but unfortunately I did. I also found some of the coloring to be smeared and you lose some of the inking detail. I enjoyed the story and it was nice to see some emotion come from the characters particularly Terra. It will be interesting to see how Caitlin handles seeing what the Ravagers can become in the next few issues.
