Seven (stylized as SE7EN) is a comic book edited by David Seidman and Ralph Tedesco. It was published as a hardcover edition by Zenescope Entertainment on January 15, 2008 and is based on the 1995 cult film Se7en directed by David Fincher. Zenescope acquired the license to adapt the film after building a strong relationship with New Line Cinema, the owner of the film.[1]

Plot summary[edit]

In a departure from the film, which was told from the perspective of two homicide detectives, Somerset (played by Morgan Freeman) and Mills (played by Brad Pitt), the book Se7en is told from the perspective of John Doe (the story's killer, portrayed on film by Kevin Spacey). Doe is using the seven deadly sins to paint a masterpiece to teach a world full of sinners a lesson.
