Words cannot describe how stunned this mini-series has left me. Taskmaster was a non-entity to me; a character who was neither interesting nor deserving of attention in any way. This mini-series has changed that, and is one of my favourite of 2010; certainly the best thing Marvel has published this year. The way Fred Van Lente has made us care about something of a non-character is absolutely astounding, and if you aren’t touched by the ending of this book then you should consult a doctor, because you may lack emotions. The art by Jefte Palo, too, was absolutely gorgeous and complemented the story perfectly. My only complaint, and it’s a minuscule one, is this: the Secret Avengers are on the cover but only appear briefly, almost as though they’re the butt of a joke. This mini-series was a must read, and if you can’t be bothered to go back and pick up the issues you should definitely collect it when it comes out in trade.

Story: 5 - Excellent
