    Another one-shot style issue that can be read as the first issue into the series, but the full awesomeness isn't apparent until you start from the first issue, which you really should! Read Full Review

    In case you havent gotten the message by now, Im bananas for this series. This comic just gets me and I cant wait for more. Ales Kot and Mike Walsh are a new team to look out for and this book should be a lot bigger than it is. Everything about this comic has been great so far; it doesn't have a major Achilles heel. Keep an eye on Secret Avengers, friends, this comic is the hotness. Read Full Review

    Ales Kot's brief tenure on Suicide Squad made him an excellent candidate to take over Secret Avengers. And thus far, Kot hasn't disappointed. He maintains the spy-ops focus of the previous volume while bringing back some of the humor and weirdness of Rick Remender's run. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jun 13, 2014

    "Secret Avengers" is a book that is firing on all cylinders right now, and seems to have an incredibly strong grip on what it is trying to do. The book is trying to blend espionage and humor, with some sci-fi tossed in for good measure. For the most part, it is succeeding at that. Kot's script here is full of a lot of action/spy movie cliches, but used in a knowing way; Kot isn't trying to play something off like it is an original idea, but rather playing with the form and creating something fun and fresh with familiar ingredients.

    All-Comic - Kyle Welch Jun 12, 2014

    Secret Avengers is smart, funny and laced with intrigue. Ales Kot knows when to lighten the mood and when to knuckle down. Issue four is a one-shot mission that moves along the greater story and characters while still being enjoyable and looking beautiful. Secret Avengers continues to remind readers it is not your typical superhero book, it is better. Read Full Review
