    Overall, Secret, has a lot going for it in terms of storytelling as well as the art direction and the use of muted colors and tones throughout the issue which gives the comic a distinct style. There also appears to be a short and long con at play which possibly plays into foreshadowing of where this story is eventually going. Secret is conceivably more than the sum of it's part and I look forward to the next issue to see what Jonathan Hickman has up his sleeve. Read Full Review

    So far everything is pretty ,bout Secret as I am about The Manhattan Projects, which is another great comic. Hickman is surely onto another hit and with his head for design and Bodenheim's fantastic art everyone should be excited about Secret. Read Full Review

    Where Hickman's other creator-owned series which launched last month, Manhattan Projects, was a bit hindered by its high concept in the opening chapter, Secret is perfectly paced and more accessible. Not that it's a competition, mind you. Read Full Review

    Without Alexander's art this book would only be a little above average, but with it, its a wonderful piece of work. Read Full Review

    All in all, Secret #1 is a great start, and you should definitely check it out. For the art, and for the writing. And if you're a fan of heist films, or crime comics, avoid this only if you're a moron or retarded. Read Full Review

    In conclusion, Secret #1 was a good, but, aside from the color aspect, not a special read. I would not be the least bit surprised if it evolved into something amazing, even if that happened within the next few issues, but it just isn't there yet. The price is also a bit of an issue for me. While 50 cents isn't a lot of money, I feel there are better Image titles for 2.99. Read Full Review

    No doubt will the plot thicken and questions will be answered as we get to future issues, but with Image Comics spitting out new #1s like newborn rabbits, will this one be a keeper? Well see. Read Full Review
