And it is time for the epic battle of Penguins vs. Possums to continue! The penultimate issue #7 is due for release on March 23rd from Fanboy Comics and again comes from the creative minds of Sebastian Kadlecik, John Bring and Lindsay Calhoon Bring. The pin-ups this time come from Chris Thorne, Ezra Savage, Steve LaRiz and Bridget Greene.
Since we're now one chapter away from the grand finale, explaining what is going on without spoiling the story arc is pretty darn impossible. That said, chapter seven is about setting the stage for the grand finale – and obviously the last cliffhanger preceding it! Lines are drawn, sides are chosen and masterplans are put in motion.
And the penguins? Well, our dastardly birds have finally gone fully to the Dark Side, to the point that by the cliffhanger ending they've geared up in combat outfits fit for an Antarctic Sith Lord. And of course, facing these waddling super-villains are the possums, the good-guy underdogs of the story, facing seemingly undefeatable odds. Humans, on the other hand, have little recourse but to hope there's a world left after the final showdown.
Again, I'm loving how things are shaping up. Chapter seven is very light on the action and has a bigger emphasis on getting things in place for the inevitable conclusion. There's a real sense of stakes being ramped up and you really can't be certain of who will win and who will survive. Also that cliffhanger is again so well-crafted that we'll be left on the edge of our seats, waiting for the conclusion!
Per usual, when Penguins Vs. Possums #7 arrives on March 23rd, it will be available via Fanboy Comics and their web store. Again special thanks to Barbra Dillon and Fanboy Comics for letting our murky flippers on the review version so we can have this timely feature spotlight!
