    While issue #7 does feature some fill-in art, it's hard to complain much when Butch Guice is joined by Steve Epting. These two, along with Brian Theis, divide up the pages in this issue pretty evenly between the S.H.I.E.L.D.-focused scenes and those on Barbuda. While there's some variation in style, all three achieve a similarly gritty yet energetic tone. Compared to some books this week that get thrown off just by having multiple inkers covering one penciller, this arrangement isn't bad at all. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 20, 2013

    This effect should also be attributed to Matthew Wilson, who really bring out the warmth and explosiveness of the action scenes in contrast with the colder and much more somber scenes with Maria Hill and Daisy Johnson. He is able to bring out the weirder colors of the cast and mesh them well with the rest without making them seem out of place. Wilson does a lot toward the visual cohesion and the contrast effect, which is commendable. Nick Spencer gives us a very good story with a mix of espionage and action that is smartly drawn by Butch Guice and Steve Epting with the help of Matthew Wilson that allow the readers to see the kind of difficulties of the spy world as well as giving us a good perspective on how S.H.I.E.L.D. has its own problem. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 14, 2013

    This is still one of the most interesting superhero books on the shelf by virtue of how unique and different it is from any other. It brought together a predictable, but completely appropriate, team to do what a team like that WOULD do best: espionage and a whole lot of it. Hawkeyes issues may not be as spotlighted, but the characters are still interesting and consistent and the art is still perfectly matched to the writing and does a fantastic job of establishing and maintaining and tense, thrilling tone.

    It'd be nice if the creative team was a little more consistent, but there aren't many mainstream series around to which that criticism couldn't apply. As it is, "Secret Avengers" has a unique premise and a strong tone unlike anything else Marvel is currently publishing. Spencer's work can vary in quality across a greater range than most writers, but on "Secret Avengers" he's definitely doing some of his best work. If you enjoy a mixture of intrigue and action, you owe it to yourself not to miss it. Read Full Review

    While I enjoyed Ross' art on this book, Guice brings a great look to such a espionage/political comic. His ‘gritty' style is very different from Ross but appropriate and helps bring a certain uniqueness from the other Avengers books out there. Read Full Review

    I'm not too huge on war and politics in my every day life, but those issues in the Marvel Universe are starting to interest me. Like I said in my last review of 'Secret Avengers', I haven't really latched onto this series yet, but I think I'm starting to come around to it. Just not all the way yet. Read Full Review
