Secret War was an interesting premise: Nick Fury (director of SHIELD) gathers a select team of superheroes, sent them on a covert mission to Latveria, then wipes their memory of the whole event. A year later, someone comes to take revenge.

However, the mission is kept so secret in this collection that you could blink and miss it. I wanted more details!
And the fact that a new hero was created just to finish the mission seemed a bit deus ex machina - young girl who can create big earthquakes...

Having said that, the artwork in this piece was really good, and the ending sets up Nick Fury's character as AWOL for several years to come in the Marvel comics series. His character and motivations were one of the better things about this series, and the bonus "Files of Nick Fury" at the back, as well as the interview pieces in between each issue, really add to the overall story.
One of the best scenes of this was when the heroes all share the same plane together and don't know what they're doing, featuring a drunk Logan/Wolverine, and people guessing who Peter Parker actually is.

Bendis is well known for stretching out a story, but this is a note story that really doesn't satisfy. Everything you want to see happens off panel and what you're left with feels like a low budget TV drama trying to be a big budget movie. The art is really great, and every star I'm giving this story is on art alone.

Some interesting elements but the story seemed both heavy handed and lacking in enough detail to get the significance of what was going on.

A stunning piece of writing and drawn by one of my favourite artists. Will be a worthy addition to any comic book collection!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed reading another story from the marvel universe.
It's a darker storyline that involves espionage and hidden secrets. Enjoy!
