    Odd storyline w/ dark art holds this book back.

    This book just had to be good. The creative team and the characters involved were clearly too good to be true. The story seemed like pages were missing. What could have been fleshed out and moved the story along was done off panel. The dialogue, which Bendis excels at, seemed flat here. The overall plot wasn't bad but the ending seemed so rushed. Just a weird book. The art, which was beautiful at times, was so incredibly dark that it was hard to decipher who was in each in panel and that's never good. Dell'Otto is a fantastic artist but this might not have been the best form for him. Like I said, just a strange book.

    Bendis lays his first bricks in.

    Bendis takes the opportunity from his long-term tenure at Marvel and practically co-opts the editor's position to lay foundations for a world-shattering series of mega-events.

    Secret War, though, is not one of those mega-events. Relatively modest compared to his other projects, this story is a neat little excuse to team up some of Marvel's Greatest (and future New Avengers members) and take Fury off the active roster, without actively making any other dramatic changes to the Marvel universe. You can tell he's just takign baby steps here, figuring out how the heroes actually relate to each other.

    (Spoiler alert) Fury's promise to no longer involve himself in superheroes' lives and his subsequent abandonment of S.H.I.E.L.D. is just a slight wink to his future plans. Although the heroes involved do get shaken up by the ordeal, the clandestine nature of the story means this would not radically change the way things are (not yet).

    Gabrielle Dell' Otto's art does a wonderful job of giving the story a clandestine feel. Overall, though not as satisfying as Bendis next stories Fury's Secret War does the job. Not a must read, but a decent one.

    Highly Recommended -Check this out

    I had never known that the marvel universe had any kind of war between either heros and villans or between the heros themselve. Example the Civil War comic brings into view the superhero registration act. In this one we see Fury presenting evidence that latvaria (Dr. Dooms old stomping ground) was supplying tech for super villans who used tech in their costumes and when the president blows off Fury's evidence Fury decides to gather a band of superheros to go to latvaria without any approval from the government. It's an awesome comic and I think any marvel fan should read this comic
