Secret Invasion #6 (of eight) (Marvel – Bendis / Yu / Morales / Martin)
EMBRACE CHANGE! With these words, the Skrulls have made their intentions clear but not everyone thinks they sound all that bad. Which heroes and icons are hell-bent on defending the Earth from the invasion, and who thinks a new era has dawned for mankind? The final double-page spread of this issue will send chills down your spine, and that is a promise!!
The blockbuster event of the year heads towards its shattering conclusion by Bendis and Yu.
Well, Secret Invasion has really come to a head. It’s a very interesting thing to have a series that absolutely draws you in and compels you to get the next issue without too much actually happening 🙂
While not a lot of actual action happens, we do get some great tidbits. Like the fact that the Wasp is some sort of ringer for the Skrulls. We see Manhattan totally overwhelmed by Skrull ships. Thor meets the new Captain America as he calls for a final battle with Skrull ground troops. The Thunderbolts join the Avengers for the battle while the Hood’s syndicate waiting for their optimum moment. And the end of the issue has the splash page we have all been waiting for! (anyone else see the Skrull Galactus?) Not to mention the Nick Fury quote of the year!
Issue Grade: A-
Meanwhile Marvel has been advertising on ESPN2 🙂 I feel sorry for the guys who saw this and didn’t have a clue what it was (like everyone?!?)
