Gaydos' artwork is unique, I get an Indie comic feel from it and his work has grown on me with each issue. The covers dine by David Mack are beautiful!

What a great surprise. I was looking forward to this book and my expectations were exceeded right out of the gate. Excellent team assembly and interactions, full of characters I know and love but still managing to develop them throughout. The art fits the story very well. Good looking book. I'm excited about this one and have it firmly affixed in my pull list.

Ms. Marvel and Moon Girl add some youthfulness and Karnak is just all around awesome. I can't wait to see if this comic keeps up the momentum.

Great dialogue, interesting mix of heroes with fun reveals, jump off the page action - I loved it. Wasn't expecting to pick it up and so glad I did. Rosenberg is totally in his element and clearly enjoying it (his afterword is good fun too)! Great use of the heroes involved - best part I've read of the Secret Empire story so far.
