I thought Dark Avengers was Bendis best Avenger work by far.

Siege: Secret Warriors

Event tie-ins suck. Blah blah blah.

I didn't hate this. In fact I kind of liked it. The second page being a flashback to the end of the fantastic Oeming/Foreman mini-series helped. When Ares is resurrected, they'd better bring back the mohawk dammit. Character wise, I thought this was a pretty solid read. In terms of shit happening and how it relates to the overall event and the ongoing Secret Warriors series meant fuck all, but so what? Fury hitting a flask mid battle is at least more entertaining than people standing around watching the Sentry be a douchenozzle. Was Phobos killing dozens of Secret Service Agents to leave a note for the POTUS silly? Yep, but Phobos breaking out his katana to do it was still neat. Will I remember this comic a year from now when I re-read it in a trade? Probably not, but it wasn't the worst 10 minutes of my life either.

The art was serviceable. Jose Villarrubia made it look better than it would have otherwise. If nothing else, at least it doesn't have the crazy misplaced copy and paste Reed Richards hair that Sal Larroca botched in this week's IIM #25.

Story: 7.5
Art: 7
Overall: 7

The flashback/preview was the best part.

If I ever cross paths with Frank Cho, I'm kicking him in the nuts for getting rid of the mowhawk. Then I'm going to have him sign my copy of Zombie King on the page where the zomie fucks a cow.

I didn't think about it earlier, but I did like the preview pages when I read them in advance but hated the rest.

I can't stand the pages with the intentionally too inept for fantasy even Secret Service agents being killed. I can't abide that Fury would tolerate that either when he finds out. Not one bit.

I'll check out the Horns guy, I just wish listed all of his stuff.

I keep thinking I'll check out Wondermark online at some point, but I never do.

Wondermark is one of the few "funny" comics, that I actually find funny.

Those columns were awful, Ellis tries too hard sometimes, and this was one of them.
