My favorite Avengers book 0

Secret Avengers has been one of the most interesting books to come out of Marvel's big Avengers brand relaunch. The creative team is a match made in heaven, as Mike Deodato's dynamic action sequences and shadowy figures are a perfect fit for Ed Brubaker's high-concept conspiracy storylines. The book also spotlights a lot of quality under-used Marvel characters (Nova, Moon Knight, Valkyrie, War Machine, etc.) and gives them a chance to shine in massive Avengers-sized stories. "Secret Histories", ...

Secret Avengers Issue 6 0

Well, six issues in, I think I can now say that this is my favorite Avengers book. It wasn't for a while, due to my strong love of New Avengers cast of characters, but that book has really just disappointed me with it's crazy magic story. Secret Avengers meanwhile has been growing and showing some strong signs for the future, trademarks of Brubaker writing. I really think that with the involvement of Steve Rogers, this book might be the one to look out for the most as well, since what happens in...

Review: Secret Avengers #6 0

The Secret Avengers are bedeviled by an unholy secret society whose appearance may herald the resurrection of Shang-Chi's villainous father.  The Good I've been following Deodato's art since the mid 90s and it's been a treat to see how his art's evolved into such a lush, norish direction that gives even the most fantastical subjects a cold-as-steel reality. It's that sense of reality that I should harp on, as Brubaker gives all the dialog a terse hardness that gives this book a "darker Avengers...

Secret Avengers #6 Review 0

     Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato kick off a brand new story here in Secret Avengers #6! We instantly get thrown into the action with Shang-Chi being attacked by the order of Hai-Dai. It seems to me Marvel is using Secret Avengers to propel characters not seen as often as liked and re-launching them so to speak by using them in this book for an arc. They did it last arc with Nova and it seems they are doing it again here with Shang-Chi.A big downer for me is that they didn't have Nova in this...

Eyes of the Dragon, Part One 0

I've always liked Shang-Chi, so when I heard he was going to be in an upcoming Secret Avengers, I must say I was excited.  He's here.  He gets attacked by what appear to be his father's lackeys.  We don't know for certain, but there are hints that his father may be back from the grave.  He gets a little help from the Prince of Orphans to escape this group.  It's a fast paced start to the story line, that's for sure. This looks like it's going to be a good story coming along.  There's a little my...

The Chinese conspiracy 5

Breaking and entering. A space ship hovering around the world. A net of operatives from all the globe. A threat from the past, long dead and forgotten. A secret council from the depths that just assumed a major role (trying to replace AIM, Hydra and others). A Kung Fu master that fights to make it up for his fathers´sin. A group of heroes that save the world and can´t get the credit for it. These are all the elements of this book and it´s  working fine. You see a Steve Rogers that is commander o...

Many men smoke 0

After the previous issue's pretty straight forward background story of who Max Fury is, this issue sort of jumps into the fold and raises the suspense.  It starts off quite entertainingly as Shang Chi is awoken in his sleep by invaders, which turns into an all-out battle.  Another hero intervenes and Shang Chi is essentially taken into the fold of the Secret Avengers.  What unfolds is a criminal plot which has both some fantasy and espionage elements and they are melded together here quite convi...
