Following the suicides of his acolytes, The Inquisitor’s plan to unleash hell on Earth is one step closer to being executed. Together, the Shade, La Sangre and Montpellier must stop him before the lives of the twenty-five innocent people he’s captured are lost. And when The Inquisitor reveals the truth about his enigmatic identity, the trio will need to find one last puzzle piece to defeat him.


“I'm excited for issue #7 to come out for a lot of reasons,” series writer James Robinson told THE SOURCE. “It wraps up the Barcelona arc with Javier Pulido, a story that I've loved working on, and which I'm really gratified to see readers have enjoyed along with the introduction of the vampire super-heroine La Sangre. Here in this final issue we finally learn the Inquisitor's grand scheme and see the Shade using his powers to the Nth degree, both important pieces of what will eventually combine into the overall grand story line of all 12 issues. I'm also happy that the issue serves to both set up issue #8's ‘Times Past’ story with art by Jill Thompson as well as having a cliffhanger ending that leads us into the ‘London arc’ beginning in issue #9 with art by Frazer Irving. This is a labor of love for me, so a big thank you to all the readers who've supported this book.”
