Book Title: Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #7
Book Description: Through the first six issues of “Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal” we have watched our antihero bounce all over the timeline. During her adventures she’s stolen priceless relics and done many things that altered the course of history. The seventh installment begins at the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. It’s January 6, 2021. Here Marjorie is forced to come to terms with how her actions, whether intended or not, have pushed humanity to think that this kind of behavior is acceptable.

I love that Mr. Ennis found a way to make current events a part of this story. Before that day one would think what transpired on January 6, 2021 could only happen in a fictional universe. Marjorie seeing this is akin to Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by the ghost of Christmas Present in “A Christmas Carol”.
I liked how after all this time we learned about the course of events that led to Tim being with Marjorie. In some ways you feel bad for him. He can’t seem to catch a break. Now he’s stuck in the friend zone.
I found the cover of this book to be rather fitting. It’s thematic of the first six issues in the run. With everything that has happened during Marjorie’s escapades, health and safety have been an afterthought.
A picture is worth a thousand words. With some of the panels on the interior pages the reader finds themselves awestruck by what has taken place. The Artwork may not be as detailed as it could be. It doesn’t need to be. In fact I am perfectly content not having a vivid panel of where the heroin addict chose to shoot up at.
As a geek on a budget I have gotten a thrill out of this entire series. If you’re a bit late to the party I would strongly recommend getting the TPB. It will be easier than finding each individual issue and it gives you the opportunity to binge the entire story in one shot. Be prepared for a wild and crazy ride!
