An ancient force is threatening the very fabric of reality, and the strange assembly of the Seven Gentlemen is determined to recruit mystical soldiers powerful enough to stop the horror, including the young Knight of the Round Table, Justin, Zatana the magician, Klarion the witch-boy and the Guardian, a dare-devil reporter and mascot of a newspaper. But while none of the soldiers chosen are truly aware of the grand threat, and each are entangled in their personal problems, how can they be trusted with the fate of the world?

From the Comic Buyer’s Guide:
We were told a soldier would die, but it is shocking to see just what a thrashing the good guys get in the long-delayed final chapter of Seven Soldiers. Spanning from the beginning of human history to its final horrific evolution, Grant Morrison and J.H. Williams III wrap up their opus with shocking defeats and Pyrrhic victories
Only an artist as skilled as Williams, paired with a writer who can think in four dimensions, such as Morrison, could produce the sort of kinetic and visually challenging art seen in this issue. The page on which Gloriana arrives to “eat the whole world” is a shockingly powerful composition, in which conventions of time and space seem to fold in on each other to create a unified, everlasting now. From this point on, the reader becomes inextricably implicated in the story unfolding.
By the end of this issue, the Seven Soldiers have saved the world from the Sheeda queen. But, with one soldier ascending to unholy power, another enslaved, yet a third retired, and (of course) the death of one soldier at the hands of an unchallenged evil, what chances are there against the next cosmic threat? Roll the dice…
