Last week on Review Group Drama:Bendis Bashing was a sucess. This week: Hicklash!

Secret Warriors #25
selected by GLX

Double-sized, secret revealing issue! What ties Hydra, The Howling Commandos, and Leviathan together? How did Nick Fury, Dum Dum Dugan, Baron Von Strucker, Kraken and Orion become part of the same mysterious organization? It's all here in “Wheels within Wheels” part 2: “Zodiac”!

Image
Eli Katz has next week's pick.

Image
If you would like to join the group, it's easy. Just post a review and I'll add you to the member's list. As long as you stay active, eventually it will be your turn to make a pick.

With $4 comics becoming the norm, the economy being what it is and the growing popularity of mail order services the Review Group recognizes that it's becoming harder and harder to commit to participating each and every week. As long as you can post one review per calendar month you will stay in the member's list. It doesn't matter if you post your review the week of it's release or if you post it later. There is no such thing as a "late" review.

The only request I make is that if you don't plan on posting a review or if you're going to be posting late is that you drop a note in the thread so that I can keep track of who is active and who isn't. The Spreadsheet of Doom is thorough, but it can't read your mind.


Image
Comics are to be scored on a scale from 1-10. 1 being suck, 10 being a damn good comic. Beyond that, there's no right or wrong.

Image
If it's your week, you must announce your selection by 5pm EST the day Diamond releases it's shipping list. If you do not announce your pick at that time, I will add a poll to the thread that will remain open until 12pm EST so that the group can make the selection for that week. (If you're seriously MIA, I'll probably put the poll up sooner) To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays. Also you'd better keep in mind the Amber Atoms rule, if your pick isn't reviewed by 2 or more people you will be exiled from the Group for 1 year. Our definition of a single issue comic is limited to comics listed at $3.99 or lower, anything above that is off limits. Also, to prevent utter filth being chosen deliberately, the Weird Worlds Rule has also gone into affect. Any book scoring a new all-time low (2.68 as of today) will not count as a miss if people wisely choose not to purchase it. Any poor soul who did review the book will earn a free pass on a book of their choice.

I'll be contacting members this week about their desire to stay involved with the group.

List will be updated with colors and any new members I missed at approximately 10:30 PM EST, Wednesday

Ah, here it is.

Good to see the 'Hicklash' is picking up speed, it's a sensation.

I dropped the term at my LCS last week. People didn't believe there was such a thing.

People can pick what they want, but either way, I think this is a largely standalone (as much as SW can be) issue, it's a double-sized special which promises to reveal a lot of secrets, so I expect it will be all back-story rather than the main plot ramping up.

But who knows?

Well, they got a healthy dose of it when I shattered through Hickman's "big words screen" and showed how four of six issues of SHIELD were set up almost exactly the same.

I do like Secret Warriors, though. I really wish they weren't rushing the ending.

I'm wary of this issue, it looks like it's tying in pretty heavily with SHIELD which is a bad idea.

It doesn't really matter what order you read this stuff in, it's not going to make much sense anyway..

H8r. Go sit in the corner with Punchy.

Also, this issue probably won't show up until SW v6. Marvel hasn't even released SW v4 in TP yet. Far too much story to make up when the comic doesn't come in a death bag. And if it ties in with S.H.I.E.L.D. like Punchy said? That collection doesn't come out until next month.

I meant that in the most positive light possible. Hickman's created quite a puzzle for them that don't read his books monthly, but in the end I doubt it matters much. Too bad you aren't reading SW monthly.

P.S. Thanks to the Marvel Event bonanza, I'm almost halfway to getting that PS3 and forgetting about comics forever. 8)

Uh... what?

This issue only raised more questions! I think we found out who Kraken is... but I'm not sure.

So Hydra, Leviathan and SHIELD all came from The Shield? And what was that scene when it looked like Nick Fury was shot in the head? Guh.
