(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

Back in the days when Team 7 was a story still waiting to be told, this mini-series reunited three of the surviving members (Lynch, Grifter and Backlash) and was produced by Jim Lee, Brandon Choi, Brett Booth and Sean Ruffner—a WildStorm hall of fame roll-call. Jack Lynch and Alicia Turner are kidnapped by a mysterious group calling themselves The Kindred and Backlash is recruited to rescue them, with Grifter tagging along for the ride. The trail leads to Caballito, an island populated by evolved sentient animals, The Kindred, who were created as a result of test trials for the Gen-factor, the source of Team 7’s powers. The creatures want revenge for the way they have been treated, and the team are left to fight their way free. Not as good as the real Team 7 stories which followed, but it was, at the time, a welcome taster and a competent action tale. ~JC
