Secret Warriors #2
Written: Jonathan Hickman

After a disappointing first issue (I seem to be the only person in the world disappointed with it at least) I’m not sure if I’m excited for this series anymore. While Hickman is a competent writer and the first issue wasn’t really bad or anything I just wasn’t feeling the team aspect to this team book. Maybe I’m crazy here but there’s little to no point in buying a team book if the team isn’t the main aspect. I’m buying this for the Secret Warriors, not Hydra and Nick Fury’s little grudge match. Though I must admit it looks cool from the preview, I’m just not so sure anymore. I’ll give it the 3 issue rule where 3 issues in if I’m not liking it, it’s getting dropped.

This looks great from the preview. It’s been what, a couple of years since the last issue and I’m sure everyone has a right to be pissed over it and skip this. But wow, the preview looked great and if this series ever finishes anytime soon I wouldn’t mind picking up the collection.

From the preview this looks pretty bad. Mockingbird is a total stuck up bitch and Ronin is an absolute moron/petty jackass. To be fair, McCann hasn’t been writing much, he just started writing a couple months back from what I understand. It’s too bad because this could be a cool book but this looks rather mediocre. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong and it will be a great read, but from a first glance it doesn’t seem that way.

Just want to comment on this quickly, it looks awesome and if I was in to Cosmic Marvel I’d check it out. But Conquest…I tried that last year and it really disappointed me. If I heard good things I’ll check out the collection but that’s it.

After an awesome first issue, I made sure the guys at my LCS said they where now ordering it for sure and that issue 2 would be in my box. I’m still a tad skeptical but…well fingers crossed. Either way I’m psyched to check out issue #2 as it looks to be another great read. I’m hoping we move on more to Barock and Zoe’s developing relationship, but this here is still a cool way to start the series. Also, Cooke does the best covers, I hope he does more JG covers in the future.
So that’s it, expect nothing tomorrow and reviews on Wednesday as I’m not sure I can pick up my comics anytime soon.
