I really like Hickman. Actually, I love Hickman’s work. The man has crazy, complex, and fresh ideas, which keep me on my toes as a reader. I’ll read anything the man writes but Secret Warriors is starting to test my patience.

Specifically, I’m getting tired of hearing about how bad ass Nick Fury is and how he has this incredible plan that is going to save the world. Stop telling me and start showing me. Hickman also continuously has flash backs and subplots that he is using to build up the universe this book exists in, but his use of these techniques makes the story feel disjointed and spread too thin. Collectively, this book has been the definition of inconsistent and that is upsetting because inconsistent quality just isn’t enough to justify sticking with a new series, featuring mostly new characters. If I wasn’t such a big Hickman fan, I would have already dropped this book.

This issue in particular is week because its all set up so nothing really happens. The truth is I still enjoyed this issue because of some great Fury moments and the prospect of the coming war but Hickman better do something soon to rejuvenate this book or Secret Warriors will not be around for much longer. Bottom line: if you’ve been picking up this book this is an issue you have to deal with in order to get to the good stuff, hopefully in the next issue, If you haven’t been picking this up don’t start with this issue.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 3 - Good
