      <http://www.dccomics.com/comics/?cm=2699> (with preview)

      Written by Grant Morrison; Art and cover by J.H. Williams

      A devastating global threat is on its way — one never imagined nor
      prepared for. It consumes entire civilizations and leaves behind only
      ruins. It razed Camelot and bombed the Rama kingdoms back to dirt. It
      strip-mines and enslaves whole cultures. Its hunger is unstoppable;
      its origins, unspeakable. Now this devouring empire of cruelty-
      without-limits has set its sights on the treasures of the 21st
      century.

      Like a plague of locusts, the terrifying Sheeda are returning to
      harvest the Earth. All that stands between our world and these
      destroyers are the mysterious "Seven Soldiers" of legend. Seven men
      and women with extraordinary abilities and big problems must lay
      their lives on the line for the future of humankind. Seven reluctant
      champions must arise and somehow work together to save the
      world...without ever meeting one another. How? Where? Who? There's
      only one way to find out.

      In an ambitious new storytelling venture, writer Grant Morrison and a
      group of top artists combine their talents to redefine the super-hero
      concept for a new century. Entertainers, losers, victims, exiles,
      wannabes...the stars of SEVEN SOLDIERS are a long way from anyone's
      ideal of a traditional costumed hero. But they just may be our only
      chance of survival.

      Who lives? Who dies? Who washes the dishes? Who betrays humankind to
      its once and future Enemy? Get the answers to these questions and
      many more in seven hard-hitting, fresh and wildly imaginative
      miniseries featuring KLARION, MISTER MIRACLE, FRANKENSTEIN, ZATANNA,
      THE GUARDIAN, BULLETEER and SHINING KNIGHT.

      The SEVEN SOLDIERS saga comprises seven 4-issue miniseries and two
      bookend Specials — all which may be read independently but combine to
      tell a colossal 30-part tale of death, betrayal, failure, joy, loss,
      romance, triumph and redemption. As a new generation of super-heroes
      grapples with a harsher, weirder world, Morrison combines dazzling
      super-hero action and serial fiction with horror, mystery, epic
      fantasy and gothic pulp to carve out a new corner in the DCU.

      With a gigantic, interweaving cast of characters—many drawn from DC's
      incomparable history and reimagined by Morrison and his collaborators—
      Including vampire knights, crippled ex-super-heroes, subway pirates,
      puritan death machines, liquid nitrogen-blooded assassins, deathless
      Mafia dons, wounded gods, angry fiancées and talking winged horses,
      the universe of the Seven Soldiers is rich in wonder, drama and
      hardcore action.

      This groundbreaking mega-series begins with a 38-page complete
      adventure, SEVEN SOLDIERS #0, that introduces readers to their
      twilight world and establishes plotlines that will reverberate
      throughout the entire megaseries.

      In issue #0, illustrated by master storyteller J.H. Williams III
      (PROMETHEA), Shelly Gaynor is the grand-daughter of Golden Age hero
      the WHIP. She's revived the old family business and is turning her
      experiences as an urban crime-fighter into a best-selling book.

      But when Shelly answers an ad to join the aging crimebuster Vigilante
      and his new team of "Seven Soldiers" in the hunt for an ancient
      monster haunting the deserts of the southwest, her super-hero dream
      becomes a terror-trip into the heart of an undying nightmare.

      SEVEN SOLDIERS: A mystery spanning generations and millennia. A story
      unlike any other. Welcome to a whole new world in the DC Universe.
