Over the past 6 months, The Defenders have quietly been a series that I’ve been enjoying quite a bit. Matt Fraction’s approach with the legacy team this time around has worked for me on several levels. First off, the team dynamic is one that brings a unique gathering with the right amount of humor in their interactions. Secondly, the “secret” nature of The Defenders as they solve the challenges that keep the universe together and yet no one can know, are just starting to play out and that tension is something that’s making this book an even more compelling read.
We got out hands on the below preview of issue #7, which shows off artist Terry Dodson’s skills as he returns to a very familiar character, the Black Cat. Throw in Black Panther and you’ve got dark hued felines at every turn. Here’s the solicit info and the preview below!
