    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Sep 1, 2013

    Secret #3 is a great read, but make sure you read the previous issues first. It will help you understand the characters and the situation that they are in. There is no recap at all. Lets hope #4 is kept on track as this title is a promising one! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch Aug 28, 2013

    It might have taken forever, but Secret is back, and hasn't missed a beat. I am a little bit worried that this issue won't be judged by readers on its own merit as a single issue, but rather judged as a book that is over a year late. So for those readers expecting the issue to be something beyond what we got from the first two issues because of the delay they will be sorely disappointed. There is nothing extra, and as I mentioned, not a hint of even a recap page. All we are left with is a great third issue to what has been a great series from one of the best writers in the industry today Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Aug 29, 2013

    The secret in “Secret” potentially goes so deep that the wait for another issue might be unbearable. Were it not that Hickman is writing something like over 9000 comic books, it would be pretty upsetting. On the other hand, the fact that we don't get to enjoy Ryan Bodenheim on a regular basis is unbearable in its own right. We comic fans complain a lot about not getting a consistent output sometimes, but these creators don't owe us anything. If it takes a year between issues, whether its the script or the art that we're waiting on, when the result is an issue this good, it's worth it. Be that as it may, one of the only weaknesses of “Secret” is that Jonathan Hickman books don't read well with a year between issues. But then again, whose would? Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Julien Loeper Aug 29, 2013

    With #3 finally out, and #4 well on its way towards store (Hickman has stated that the art is already done for it and they are working on #5) the book is back on track to coming out at a regular pace again. Hickmans story is intriguing and strong without having to be incredibly large and outlandish, and the art is on a phenomenal level. I recommend picking up Secret #3 and the 2 back issues prior.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Aug 28, 2013

    I'm glad to seeSecrethas returned, especially with such a strong issue that fixes some of the problems of the first two (and there weren't very many problems to begin with). Even better, the fourth issue is due out September 25, and the fifth just three weeks later on October 16th. It really is feast or famine with this series, but right now I'm more than happy to chow down. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Hank Johnson Aug 29, 2013

    Overall, Secret is the best ongoing title written by Hickman, and I cannot wait until the next issue. If you enjoy spy / espionage stories with a human touch you need to try out this book. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Aug 27, 2013

    This issue builds on the previous two but doesn't work well as a single, stand alone story. If you are just getting in to the series try to find the previous two, i'm sure comixology has them, or be lost in a myriad of questions. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 28, 2013

    Honestly I could recommend this to anyone because it felt like a brand new series to me. I almost went back and re-read the first two issues, but after I actually enjoyed this issue I decided not to bother. Why go back and confuse or remind myself that I was planning on giving up on this series after seeing what this issue was going to do. In a strange way I think the long delay may work in their favor so if you missed the first two go ahead and jump on. Read Full Review
