SECRET AVENGERS Revealed: Beast, War Machine (http://www.newsarama.com/comics/Secret-Avengers-Revealed-100407.html)

LOVE that Beast is back in the Avengers.  Those were some of the best of times. Hopefully Wonderman will be on this team with him!

Absolutely. And then later when he and Simon buddy'd up ... just perfection. (Now we just need a return of beast Beast and not cat Beast  :-\)

I just saw the cover for Secret Avengers #3 for solicitation's being released on April 20th.

It's got what looks to be all the members.  This is going to be cool.

Not sure how complete it is since War Machine wasn't there.  Check back tomorrow after the embargo time of noon and I'll post the cover.

SECRET AVENGERS #3

Written by ED BRUBAKER
Penciled by MIKE DEODATO
Wraparound Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC
Variant Cover by MIKE DEODATO

What hides in the depths of the red planet?  How does it link to the Shadow Empire lurking behind the scenes in America for nearly 150 years?  And will our heroes be able to save one of their own?  The Secret Avengers duo Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato bring the action.

32 PGS./Rated T+ $3.99

Looks to me like we've got the following:

1) Beast

5) Nova
6) Valkarie
7) Black Widow
8 ) War Machine (not pictured but seen in ads)

Steve Rogers as another "version" of Cap...again?

Well, I'm giving it a shot, but I haven't been reading Avengers or Cap for a while, so I'll probably be lost when it comes to all the details.

Yeah !!!
(and you know the first issue will be even cheaper. either half off or 99 cents.  ;))

One of the major draw backs of those damn $1.99 digital comics. For just 40 cents more, I can get the real thing and resell it. They need to lower that price.

Issue 1 is off to a good start.  I liked this #1 much better than the Avengers new #1.

Moon Knight is an interesting addition to the Avengers and I'm really happy to see Beast back with the Avengers.

agreed...my only complaint is that in the opening scene, Valk should be taller than Natasha  ;D

otherwise, all is good and I'm looking forward to next issue.

 :-\  I'm actually considering this one, but I'm a little hesitant because of the artist.  Deodato is a talented artist, but I absolutely loathe  his fantasy casting / celebrity lookalike art that he has done in other books.  If someone can assure me that the art is original, I might be tempted to pick this up.  I don't want to get invested in this title only to see Steve start to look like Ryan Seacrest or some other idiot celebrity.

I can only assure you of a quality, well done, product, off to a great start.

After that, you're on your own.
 ;D

He is an amazing artist, who does something you can't stand. That is not an easy thing to get over. I am not going to bash you because I know that I (Hell, we all) have certain things about certain artists that just drive us mad. That being said, I think you will miss out on a very good book ... if you can't get passed your personal issues.
 :D

(Man, that sounded rough. Sounded like I was slamming you. I am not. I have the same ... Oh screw it. I hope you take that with the lack of levity intended)

No worries, I know what you meant.   8)  I've actually previewed some panels online and they do look pretty sweet (of course it didn't hurt that the samples included Widow and Valkyrie).  Anyway, I've been re-reading my Captain America trades and I've been itching to get back into some newer material now that Marvel has (hopefully) got all of these "events" out of their system.  Thanks for the recommendation.

*snicker*

Surely you don't think that there's not a new event on the horizon that hasn't been "A Marvel Comics Event 10 years in the making"?  ::)

 ;D

I've been marvel-less since OMD, so buying any Marvel would be buying more.  :)  I'll consider the trade once it comes out.  Bru writing Steve in cloak & dagger stories is hard to pass up, even if Deodato starts copying his art out of an Entertainment Weekly again.  :D

 :D  I could be mistaken, but I believe I read somewhere that they were going to try to keep future "Heroic Age" crossover events on a smaller scale and contain them within book families (i.e. X-titles, Avenger titles, etc.).

Post by: G:The Last Man on June 28, 2010, 10:24:23 PM
I liked it well enough.  Deodato's artwork does not have the feel, this issue anyway, that he used the latest entertainment magazine for reference. 

I just don't know if Moon Knight and War Machine are a good fit.  I'm sure Brubaker will make me think differently given time.

SECRET AVENGERS #6
-----------------------

HELL YEAH. Shang-Chi, bitches !!! Damn I miss him as a prominent character in the M.U. (not that he ever was, but for me, when I was younger, he was as I only got a couple of books ... and his was at the top all the time).

I suppose his father is still going to be Yellow Claw, which sucks, but hell, good to have him back if I can't have Fu-Manchu.

Between SA and the new Heroes for Hire it is a good time to be a master of kung-fu fan.

Infact, if I ever get caught up with my comic stack, which I am vowing to do today ... be totally done ... I am going back and re-reading some of the best comics ever made - MASTER OF KUNG-FU !!!!

Damn I am rambling, but trying to be superfast on the posting after I read each comic.

With humanity facing it's gravest threat yet, Steve Rogers and his Secret Avengers will make some hard choices about what's just in times of war.

Eaton is there ... that is good. He is no Deadato, but he is a very good artist.

From ifanboy yesterday...

Beginning in Secret Avengers #16, superstar Warren Ellis takes the reins of the special ops team Steve Rogers assembled for a series of hypercompressed single-issue adventures, each a balls-out action film in 22 pages, as they covertly confront and eliminate those threats to life and liberty growing in the shadowy corners of the world, far from the eyes of men.


Title: Re: SECRET AVENGERS Thread
Post by: Perry on April 25, 2011, 01:39:41 PM
And sadly, my last issue will be #14.

I love me some Ellis and I love me some Avengers, but I decided I was dropping this title when I found Brubaker was off, and nothing has changed that (other than I wanted to read the couple Nick Spencer issues showcasing Valkyrie.

Not a fan of the Ellis previews I have seen either.  :-\


Title: Re: SECRET AVENGERS Thread
Post by: Jeff on January 07, 2012, 11:23:10 PM
Issue 20

Now this is what I've been looking for from Ellis on this title.  Very good issue focusing on Black Widow and Meleev's art is good too.

Pick this up - its a stand alone issue and you won't regret it.


Title: Re: SECRET AVENGERS Thread
Post by: Perry on January 09, 2012, 12:59:19 PM
I concur.

Of course anything ... ANYTHING ... with Alex Maleev art in it is a good thing, but this also had a good "done in one" story. Felt very PLANETARY'ish but hey, that can never be bad.

Secret Avengers #22 & 23

Remender is off to a great start.  Jaw dropping ending on issue 23.

After 2 years has this title finally become what it should have been all along?  Right now I'm saying yes!


Title: Re: SECRET AVENGERS Thread
Post by: Jeff on September 01, 2012, 01:35:00 PM
Issue 30

The new masters of evil, Max Fury, and Task Master.  Not a bad story / not a great story.

Anyone else still reading?
