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). I could not have asked for a better culmination of everything that has been happening in CAP more

This book was good. There's a lot in here to digest and a lot of the plot holes have been explained well. This issue shows how Spencer had this all planned out. Art can be better but I ignored the was art because I was so into the story and I didn't want to miss anything. The material is dense and this book is high on dialogue but good dialogue.

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. The way this 0 issue ties Pleasant Hill threads along with all of the Cap story from the past year and then builds on them with a masterful more

At first the issue seems to be playing on a nostalgia factor with a cover replicating Captain America and Falcon 176, but there is a reason behind the homage. Steve Rodgers quit and became Nomad briefly after feeling he could not stand behind a corrupt country. Now Sam Wilson feels he too cannot wear the title after seeing the injustice that happened to Rage. The story both recaps events and gives more

Awesome script and great art by Miyagawa. Wilson writes great supporting characters. Her scene of Nakia is well done. This book is so consistently good that i can't remember reading a bad story since it started.

This issue was interesting. Definitely low on the action, but it actually really didn't need it at all. I like that Kamala didn't do a very silly thing and stayed heroic throughout the book. Honestly I'd say the issue really shines when it focuses on her supporting cast. All in all it's another solid entry in a quality series.

I'm just sooooo glad what Doc X made Kamala's friends do didn't end up like hey guess what so am I!!!!! Nakia's words were poignant and the way to handle the situation correctly. I also enjoyed the Bruno interaction. Miyagawa is flassleww as usual.
