Siege: Secret Warriors #1
Here's a bit of a dilema in a review. I've been reviewing almost all the Siege one shots this month and so far the only two that have really proven themselves are Young Avengers and Loki. I did enjoy Spider-Man as well, but none of them has really delivered on showing anything really important to add to the Siege story.
Secret Warriors is the some of the same. Not a bad story at all, in fact there were moments that I actually enjoyed. I've never read any of the SW books so this was my first foray into this team.
Enjoyed Nick and Steve's scene as well as the letter that was written at the end of the story. Some of the dialogue seemed a bit clunkey though, and how Ares' son was able to get as far as he did shows a total lack of reality when it comes to protection of the President. I just didn't buy it.
Art was okay, at times very remincisent of John Romita Jr. at his best. Still I didn't find anything here that made me want to check out it's own book or anything here that furthered the Siege story, either. Therefore it kind of failed.
My Score: 6.75
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
