    Weekly Comic Book Review - Andrew C. Murphy Jun 9, 2008

    Wonder Man and the Beast: Seems Like Old Times by Christos N. Gage (Writer) and Mike Perkins (Artist)This one harkens way back to when David Michelinie was writing the Avengers. During the Skrull/Avenger/dinosaur fight, Wonder Man and the Beast are separated from the others, and have to fight their way out of a cave filled with King-Kong-style giant insects. The problem is, it's the modern Wonder Man, but the old, pointy-haired, devil-may-care Beast from the 80's, and either one of them could be a Skrull. While the Beast takes this all in stride, Wonder Man's discomfort is apparent from the beginning. He misses his old buddy, but he can't trust him. Unlike most of the others in this anthology, this story doesn't lead into anything bigger. It just takes two interesting characters and puts them in a unique situation that causes them to play off one another. Which is what every good vignette should do. Read Full Review

    These stories don't accomplish much, which is unsurprising given their short length. They do all manage to look good, though, particularly the Agent Brand and Marvel Boy segments. If you need a snazzy-looking SI comic to tide you over for the next few weeks, Who Do You Trust is probably right up your alley. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Steven M. Bari/David Wallace Jun 10, 2008

    The anthology format is notoriously hit-and-miss, so I was pleased to discover that there was more good than bad here, with most of the stories managing to expand some plot points of interest into reasonably enjoyable short stories. Whether it's worth $3.99 will depend to a large extent on your interest in Secret Invasion, and how keen you are to see certain subplots explored - but there are far worse comics that you could spend your money on than this.

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jun 17, 2008

    If you're a big fan of any of the characters featured, you're certain to get at least one short you'll enjoy, but ultimately it suffers from the same problem as almost every other anthology comic -- you'll probably find yourself disliking roughly half of what you read. For anyone other than the most dedicated Secret Invasion fan, it's probably not a shrewd investment. Read Full Review
