    I have to admit that I enjoyed Ms. Marvel #28 quite a bit more than I expected to – even though it was nothing other than one extended fight scene. After the disappointing turn of the events last issue, I was fully prepared for an issue full of regret and angst. Instead, I got a action-packed issue of Ms. Marvel kicking some Skrull ass all around Manhattan and that, my friends, is a good thing. The writing consists mostly of Ms. Marvel doing some trash talking and narrative, but it works given the context. As for the art, Adriana Melo shows why she is a rising star. Her Ms. Marvel looks awesome and she capably handles an issue long fight scene with no problems. This issue does one thing, but does it well, so check it out if you are in the mood to see one of the Secret Invasion battles. Read Full Review

    Certainly, there's little to complain about. While the crossover should bring potential new readers with it, Reed is apparently attempting to snag them by presenting a standard, accessible issue of the series and hoping that's enough to convince them. If the rest of the arc is up to this standard, it should be plenty. Read Full Review

    This issue trundles along from start to finish with little to really grab the attention. A whole issue of fighting is not in and of itself a bad thing, but when it's against a bunch of bad guys that every other Marvel hero is currently fighting it turns out to be rather boring and the Super-Skrulls have now appeared so often and with so many power permutations that they're getting old very quickly. And, with the character development amounting to little more than "I like hitting things," there's simply not enough here to make it worthwhile. Read Full Review
