That was exactly his kind of humor. He'd love it. ;-)

I got this book, and I read it. I can't say I loved it.

SIEGE: SECRET WARRIORS #1
I have enjoyed most of the Siege One-Shots, They are not really necessary but they are still fun. This issue is pretty much on par with the other One-Shots. It wasn't great but there were some fun panels, like Cap and Fury but Phobos is the focus here and Hickman really pushes the characters bad ass-ness on the reader and I felt it was a little forced and I am not even sure why he went after the President. The last page of him in the Oval Office was cool and the line 'Surely, fortune favors you and the men I spared. Enjoy it.' from his letter was great. I was not a big fan of Alessandro Vitti's art when he filled in for Caselli and he did not impress here either, he is not bad by any means but my eyes only want to see Caselli doing the art on this.

STORY - 7

ART - 6

OVERALL - 6.9

This felt like a Secret Warriors B-side. Not as mind blowing as this week's Secret Warriors, but it's an entertaining read.

7.8* out of 10*

So I'm annoyed, I asked the comic shop to throw the FCBD comics, in particular the GI Joe one, into my bag, and they didn't. Now I gotta find a copy of that shit on ebay or something. :x

They also, for some reason, gave me Ultimate Avengers #1 instead of Secret Warriors #15. And they messed up on giving me Secret Warriors #14 last month. :( And Nova #35.

Siege: Secret Warriors #1

Story by Jonathan Hickman
Art by Alessandro Vitti

Phobos is a badass, we've known this since around Secret Invasion but here, here it really shines. You never leave the god of fear out of something that his father's life was given for. Phobos battles through what seems to be hundreds of secret service men to deliver a very important message to the president.

Meanwhile in Oklahoma, Nick Fury and the heroes fight against Osborn and Nick once again has a very special conversation with Osborn for some really fun foreshadowing.

All in all this was a good issue that adds on to the mythology of the Secret Warriors. Fury and Phobos are both perfectly in character and the message left for the president was definitely a great moment for the character.

Story: 8
Art: 8

Siege: Secret Warriors

Certainly not the greatest issue, but not a bad one by any means. I particularly enjoyed the stuff with Cap and Nick. That was nice to see. I like the banter when they're fighting and what not. Obviously, Phobos in the main character in this issue. He's definitely portrayed as this super badass kid. I liked the moment between Ares and him (whenever that took place). It was cool to see him go after the president, but I don't how necessary it was. The note was a nice touch.

The art wasn't the best. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly good IMO. I don't know, it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Story- 7
Art- 6
Overall- 6.5

are the secret warriors out in trade yet? This one shot actually made me interested in the series. I have to say this was a fun pick this week.
