The concluding issue of the supernatural swashbuckling series arrives in stores this week.
This week AfterShock Comics releases Seven Swords #5, the final issue of the series from writer Evan Daugherty, artist Federico Dallocchio, colorist Valentina Bianconi, and letterer Dave Sharpe. Today The Beat is pleased to present an exclusive preview of the concluding chapter of the supernatural adventure series.
Here’s how AfterShock Comics describes Seven Swords #5:
The true nature of Cardinal Richelieu’s quite literally diabolical plan has been revealed, and now the Seven Swords must square off against an infernal nemesis the likes of which they’ve never encountered before. Even the most cohesive team would be hard-pressed to stand up to the taunts and temptations of the Devil himself – how can our heroes unite to slay Lucifer in the ultimate contest of swords when they can barely keep from killing one another?
Back when the series was first announced, writer Evan Daugherty listed a number of influences, from both the world of comics and elsewhere:
Daugherty says that he grew up as a fan of “rip-roaring swashbuckling” books, movies and TV series such as Alexandre Dumas’ novel The Three Muskateers, Edmond Rostand’s play Cyrano de Bergerac – both of which he re-read for this project — and Rob Reiner’s The Princess Bride. He also revisited Richard Lester’s Muskateer series of films from the 1970s’ and Errol Flynn’s 1948 interpretation of Don Juan.
He then summons a “curveball” influence: the John Wick series. “I felt like these swashbuckling swords-for-hire were, in a strange way, sort of the mercenaries or hitmen of their era. In fact, as a shorthand, I often describe this series as ‘John Wick with swords.’ ”
On the comics front itself, Daugherty says that Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentleman “greatly inspired” this book. Meanwhile, the “pulpy quality” of pre-Unity Valiant comics, in particular Magnus Robot Fighter, Turok, Archer & Armstrong, informed his approach.
Check out the exclusive four-page preview of Seven Swords #5 below. The final issue of the series arrives in stores and digitally tomorrow, January 26th.

If you live in any part of the United States, you may be able to order Delta 8 THC online. This is because the ingredient is made from cannabis, which is now a Schedule I drug. federally, Delta 8 THC is strictly legal! However, here’s a quick overview of how the law works: Under the 2021 Farm Bill, all hemp-related cannabis, cannabidiol (also known as CBD), and any derivative products derived from it must contain a federal form of government permission. Any company manufacturing cannabis products must register with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, which means anyone who orders from them, unless they express otherwise, will receive a government stamp of approval for the product.
Although Delta 8 THC gummy bears do not contain THC, they can still be ordered by anyone over the age of eighteen years old. However, if you are worried about consuming cannabis, or you are in serious pain, or are in a rehabilitation facility or mental health facility, you should contact your doctor before taking any medication, and he will most likely recommend that you stay away from any Delta 8 THC products, at all. On top of that, you need to be aware that smoking or eating cannabis can lead to a host of serious side effects, including the development of lungs and liver cancer. However, it is important to note that most Delta 8 THC products do not include any therapeutic value. In fact, many advocates of this cannabis extract claim that it is the safest and most effective natural remedy for any type of chronic or medical condition, including nausea, seizures, glaucoma, and more.
Two brands of Delta THC are distributed by Vapors: One brand is in a gum form, while the other is in a tasty but small cigar-like format, which is easy to carry in your pocket. Both offer a variety of different strains, which are all carefully chosen based on what works best for each individual; thus, there is no concern whatsoever about getting the wrong strain. These two products also work great as a sweetener, and some people even report that they feel more alert and energetic upon having these two products.
