Review: Sectret Avengers 12 3

Steve Rogers delves into the mind of John Steele to discover secrets about the Shadow Council.The Good I've loving the backtracking of Captain America (Steve Rogers) and John Steele's histories from World War II. It's incredibly interesting stuff, and once again, Ed Brubaker has a winner on his hand. While this book's stories have been a bit flat, this last two parter has been an amazing amount of fun. I really didn't like the Shadow Council stuff at first, but it's grown on me, a little too muc...

Remember when this was a team book? 2

Yeah, nor me. We get another full on Cap story, and the closest we get to any indication that this is "The Secret Avengers"  is Beast in a few panels. This two parter has just been boring. John Steele, a character that ONLY Brubaker could possibly care about, is again given center stage, with Cap and John Aman as supporting characters. The whole thing is just really really dull. Cap and Aman fight a giant insect....thing. Steele shoots a couple of Nazis, and meanwhile, back in the modern day, Ro...

Farewell 0

This is the farewell of Ed Brubaker from this tittle and again I think that Marvel hasn´t paid the proper due respects both to the writer and to the fans, because it wasn´t reserved even a small square, left corner of a single page to an announcement of goodbye or how the writer felt about it, like it used to happen back in the old days - not that Brubaker did an excellent job in this 12 issue run, on the contrary, I think that this book never reached or fullfilled it´s promise or achieved what ...

The abyss gazed into me once again 0

After introducing the concept the previous issue, the story here goes right back into the same world within a world concept.  After subduing John (with some clever thinking on Hank's part) the heroes figure out pretty much what has happened, and mostly by taking a different approach.  It is kind of a fun story, if not very inspiring - a Nazi castle with mythological creatures and a secret cult inside.  The part of the story with Steve and the Prince is a bit distracting as the main action, but e...
