Publisher: Action Lab Comics
Written by: Dave Dwonch
Art by: Arturo Mesa with Geraldo Filho

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Comments: This team of people the Infinite Seven are one interesting looking bunch.
Smash Brannagan is the gun toting leader of the team, Master Zhen the martial artist who dresses like Bruce Lee, Parrot the little floating mini Death Star. They face an army of robots lead by one gorgeous female villain, Mavara.
Wolfsberg is another member and he is a big man. Lord Ellington acts like a gentleman who is so tough he is the home base commander. There are a few other members as well.
Now Smash Brannagan bursts in on Anthony a young teenage boy who has no idea what is going on but will. One thing leads to another and Anthony takes Brannagan's place on the team.
Anthony aka as Tony is just your ordinary teen but his life as he knows it is about to change and change in a big way. The common everyday person will be able to identify with Anthony.

Comments: Tony finds himself in a situation. He is a scared teenage boy. He is in over his head.
Agent Cinco she is drawn lovely and sexual. Zhen well his body is drawn to elongated. Wolfsberg is illustrated with big muscles and an even bigger gun. Two other members are shown a magic user and a gun shooting man.
Tony does not want to be the next Smash Brannagan an assassin he may have no choice though. He proves himself in the arena against an opponent that was big, ugly and scary.
The story needs more of an explanation as to what is going on and why it is. We do find out a little more about Tony but nothing about these other members of the Infinite Seven.

Comments: Two members of the team sit in a bar as one recounts a story about being in love. Sprite and some other guy who is nameless. He is a Moriarty yes the villain from Sherlock Holmes. This character of Moriarty/Holmes is interesting. What does he want out of life?
Melanie the new Smash's friend is drawn so cute and with such long legs.
The new Smash aka Anthony is sent on a mission to kill Sandsnake. They do have a wild chase scene. The art is rough which suits the characters in this comic.
This issue does focus a little more but still the story needs to be explained more.
Smash a boy thrown into the world of assassination makes the story interesting and fun as he does not fit in. He does however manage to get things done.

Comments: Just wait till you see what fills up the trophy room here.
Smash along with Parrot are on a mission to stop an army. His team infiltrates the Island as well. Now Smash gets to meet some interesting people. The villains are weird super villains and their leader now she is a surprise well not to Smash.
There is plenty of fighting among the super powered people. Heroes vs freaks as they go all out. These villains are a strange group.
The Infinite Seven may end up needing a new Smash. Poor Anthony has had his world turned upside down and all around.
The comic does take some twists and turns that are out of left field. Without a clue about them you have no chance of seeing them coming.

Comments: Smash Brannagan is shown training hard to get back in shape and better than before. He has become a lot tougher.
Smash is ready for action and he gets a mission. He also changes that mission. His friend is in deadly danger. His mission was to kill her. He makes his own mission. Is this where Anthony truly dies and Smash is born? Smash is shown clearly losing all hope for his future. He loses all hope of him and Melanie.
The art is well used in the fight scenes. The fight scenes are illustrated with a brutality that will have you wincing in pain.
A lot of this issue in spent on Smash recovering and than training. So it moves slowly through that. His mission though is emotional until he makes it not so. Until Smash cuts his ties to his past life and he knows that he is now and forever Smash Brannagan.

Comments: Madame Mavara has gathered together her own small army. Meanwhile Smash Brannagan goes out clubbing on his birthday.
The art has a wild look to it and it is has all the characters drawn extra skinny.
As the gang talks a mysterious figure approaches them. When the Infinite Seven or is this case five of them attack it is one all out fiery force that will devastate anything in its path.
The Stay Puff Marshmellow Man is an illustration you just have to see. It is chilling it the horror it represents.
There is a lot going on this issue and we learn a lot. There is also tons of action and fighting. This issue will keep you on your toes and have your brain thinking what is coming next?

Comments: Here we look at the mole within the Shadow Cabinet he works for Chimera an organization that wants world domination. How can someone hide within the group he wants to destroy?
The issue starts off a James Bond type of scenario. Thomas McBain is the agent featured and Autumn his partner.
The art is done in an older style to suit the story from the past. The coloring is done with blacks, grays and reds.
McBain now Ellington of the Infinite Seven comes across as a jerk. This old version of the Infinite Seven are a brutal team.
The way the story flows and the way we see Ellington presented and how events change him make for a compelling story.

Comments: Smash and the female member, Cinco of the team do some bonding.
Than the base is invaded by Chimera agents. They do know what they are doing.
The legs of the characters are drawn extra long. It seems to be part of the art style.
The team does seem to be on the ropes but they keep threatening the invaders. The Infinite Seven do rise to the challenge. The fighting gets bloody and dirty. Chimero and Infinite Seven are closely matched.
This is the season final for this series but it will return with a new # 1.
Smash will be doing some more smashing and shooting and stabbing. Smash has come into his own in this series and now is a pro. You will like seeing this pro but also feel sorry for what he has lost.
