Rather than being graded on a one-to-five star system, a more appropriate scale for grading Young Liars #7 might use one-to-five question marks, with this issue probably deserving of a four or a five.  Whereas issues one through six deal with our (anti)heroes suffering the consequences from all the horrible choices they’ve made, the seventh issue goes off on a tangent and takes us inside one of Sadie’s dreams. (One can only assume it’s a dream.)  It’s an origin issue of sorts, telling the life story of Sadie through her own drug-and-bullet-wound-altered reality.  There’s really not much connecting this issue–and also apparently the next three, as this is a four-part arc–to the previous six issues.  It doesn’t make a lot of sense, and it doesn’t pay off the cliffhanger the last issue teased, thus killing all the momentum that this title had been building up.  It’s an odd choice for Lapham, who must surely know that a lot of people will jump off the train with this issue.  Hopefully enough people will stick around so that he’s able to finish this twisted tale he’s begun.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 3 - Good
