    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 10, 2013

    Despite not fighting for the continued existence of the universe itself, or fending off transdimensional invaders, this book remains one of the most tense, high-stakes superhero comics on the shelf and this issue is no exception. There's something very gratifying about a book that still stars an Avengers cast, but takes its time not only in terms of action, but in terms of some very intriguing political maneuvering. When the boardroom conversations are as intense and engaging as the in-the-field fisticuffs, you've got something very special. The book never forgets to have a sense of humor though, both acknowledging the incredible similarities between Maria Hill and Daisy Johnson's appearance as well as having Rhodey's solution to the drone problem be...well I mentioned it before, but I still can't bring myself to spoil it, you've got to see it to believe it.

    I have only two visual quibbles with this issue, neither of which are necessarily Guice's call. One is that Maria and Daisy really need something more to help distinguish them from one another. The fact that Spencer acknowledges their bizarre physical similarities in the script doesn't help. The other is that Taskmaster looks a bit strange in his modified, capeless costume. If a sleeker, more stealthy look is required, why not bow to fan demands and finally bring back the UDON-designed Taskmaster costume? I'd be tempted to give this series a 10 just for that.

    This is not a book though that's easy to follow for readers either not familiar with this book, or for readers who have not been following the past couple years of Avengers and Shield continuity. Although all readers need to start somewhere, because of the lack of action and more of the character pieces involved, without knowing their history it could be a tough issue to follow. For those that do though, like Avengers A.I., this is not your typical Avengers book. It's a book about the Avengers filtered though the black ops and bureaucratic side of Shield which is all the more reason to give it a try. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jul 14, 2013

    Even though there are some parts that are clearly more interesting than some in both plot and character terms, the whole package is still very engaging thanks to the spy mood, some of the character work and the visual treat brought by Guice, Magyar and Wilson. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Jul 11, 2013

    Without focus or time to let the action scenes breathe, Secret Avengers #6 struggles with keeping sustained interest for the duration of the issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 15, 2013

    "Secret Avengers" is a strange title, and with Spencer departing shortly, it could end up transforming greatly with a new writer at the helm. For now, though, this is a book in desperate need of a new name, and perhaps a bit of a tap on the accelerator to get the final storyline moving a bit faster. It's not bad, but it could be a bit more fun, too. Read Full Review
