This addition to Blackthorne’s line of Timeline Color Comics stars the Darkling and Mad VII. The Darkling is a being that was created by a group of sorcerers to aid them in the conquest of other worlds, but instead, he destroyed them and his homeworld. Overcome by guilt, the Darkling fled into the farthest reaches of space, where he eventually came to grips with his destiny: to use his powers to fight the forces of Chaos. Mad VII is a scientifically enhanced super-agent whose past—one that his been wiped from his mind—is coming back to haunt him.

The writing in this anthology title is tight and the artwork is clean, but neither is particularly remarkable.
