I Love the Hydra Cap series and now Secret Empire. What a great issue and this issue just kept it going. The art was great. I loved the story. This was a story about how Cap is torn between his new history/mission and still being Captain America. I can not wait to read the whole story.

Great character work by Spencer packing some lengthy dialogue but the spectacular art by McNiven gives the characters emotional punch and it shows how much Cap isn't really happy with his big win. People will want more action but without the build up it's meaningless. This felt like a typical issue 2. Not Bad just a weird transition. I'm in and just want to keep reading!

I read everything twice and sometimes adjust my score upon a second reading... so that may very well happen here once I get over the initial excitement of the story... but for now all I can say is how much I loved SECRET EMPIRE #0 (amended on 04/25: upon a second read-through my opinion remains unchanged).

Comic books don't get much better than this intro. Great story and awesome art. Spencer outdid himself here with everything. I wish Acuna did the whole thing. His style just fits beautifully. Rod Reis illustrated intro just gave this story a lot of weight.
