  1. CHRIS SAMNEE!!!!!!!!!!!! also, the secret invasion frontline book (also written by Reed) was pretty solid, so don’t let the companion street-level books scare you off anymore. they’ve improved significantly since Civil War Frontline

  2. I swore I won’t go outside my usual titles for Seide tie-ins but I only have three other books this week.

  3. decent writer.  great artist. great cover artist.  fun (when used right) character.  should be good.

  4. Nope. Not doing it. Civil War Frontline was ok, but they dropped *every* plot point from that book, so it ended up completely lacking any value. The Secret Invasion tie-in was just bad. No way in hell am I paying money for this, I don’t care who the writer and artist are.

    I love Marvel, but I’m not crazy. 🙂

    Careful, that’s a slippery slope.  9 times out of 10, the rest of the mini will come out on a huge week.  That’s my experience anyway. 

  6. This was absurd and fantastic.  Maybe it’s just becuase I have about six issues worth of background knowledge of Thor in general (Beta Ray Bill…not terribly relevant to this story) but I loved the concept that not only could a god be bribed with double cheeseburgers, but that he’d also be hitchhiking from Chicago to Oklahoma.  Good times.

  7. If all the reporters (ie Urich and will) know that an Asgardian was responsible for the destruction at Soldier Field then it stands to reason that the locals, like restraunt diners, would know too.  That said, why is no one attacking Volstagg or at least yelling at him?  Granted he is a pretty imposing fellow (not to mention a god), so people might be less apt to confront him.  But people do stupid things when they are emotional, and I definetly think this qualifies as an emotional time.  I just wish it would have been been addressed…I mean does no one other than Urich really not notice this GIANT redheaded dude in pink wandering aroung Chicago?

  8. This was actually BETTER than the main-line Series #1 thus far.That is just a load of bullshit if you ask me. If this series turns out BETTER than the main-line I’ll erase this event from my continuity just like I did with Civil War. Oh yeah you know I’m that good. In my head Civil War ended in a single issue with Captain America dying. I’ll shun myself from SEIGE if "Embedded" turns out better.

  9. Loved the art.

  10. I do like the idea of Norman stacking the media deck in his favor.  and that art was great!

  11. Chris Samnee’s art is great. I knew right away who Todd Keller was supposed to be, even before he mentioned that he was about to cry on camera.

  12. Wow, I enjoyed this much more than the actual SIEGE series, and considering I haven’t been into a Frontline issue ever,  that came as a huge surprise. I love reading about journalism, especially with writing and art as on point as this. 5/5.

  13. I loved the obviously Glenn Beck inspired right-wing talk show host. This was a great issue, and I think I might have enjoyed it more than the actual first issue of Siege.
