All New Soulfire #7 (of 8)

   Stories of magic can be a bit much to sort out sometimes, with lots of characters with strange names, stranger powers and mysterious motivations.

   All New Soulfire suffers a bit from all that, and can be a challenge for a new reader - but this issue manages to overcome those problems by serving up an intense, emotional story that promises big changes for the series.

   Death has arrived for a central character, and the event has a devastating effect on those left behind - and that's just the beginning of the story, as revelations about the nature of reality - and the path for the future - shake up everyone's existence.

   It's a powerful tale, and it sets up an explosive finale.

   I don't always "click" with this series, but this issue stands above previous attempts, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Grade: A-
