In the first two volumes of this epic saga, we were introduced
to four of the seven soldiers, including Zatanna and Klarion
the Witchboy. And now, this third volume welcomes the other
three key players into the fold: Mister Miracle, Bulleteer
Three of Seven Soldiers of Victory introduces the
Bulleteer, victim of her dying husband's super heroine obsession;
Mister Miracle, a super-powered escape artist who discovers
a world of lost gods; and Frankenstein, the immortal monster
who, after taking the name of his creator, now searches out
evil wherever it can be found.
this collection, more of the horrific plans of the Sheeda
are revealed, and the threads connecting the characters begin
to finally weave together.

be disappointed. However, if you are tuning in here you'll
be completely lost!
