•  How do you know what we tell you here is true? You don't. But you're into it. Why? Because we love you. And it shows.
•  Disco? Yes. Abandonment issues? Definitely. Was that a pun? Maybe. Is that a romance brewing? Are we still lying to you? CLAP FOR M.O.D.O.K.!

    Michael Walsh's art in Secret Avengers #8 is the best of the run. His work is more expressive, from the wild-eyed expressions of M.O.D.O.K. To the subtle sobs of The Fury. Matt Hollingsworth's colours pair nicely with Walsh's lines and shading. The book is dark, as you might expect from a spy story, but theirs enough contrast and range to his palette that are definitely familiar to any fans of Hawkeye. Read Full Review

    M.O.D.O.K. has really been the standout character in this volume of Secret Avengers.His... "unique" personality gels with writer Ales' Kot's quirky sensibilities. So of course a M.O.D.O.K.-centric issue of the series is worth a read. Read Full Review

    SECRET AVENGERS continues to operate on the outskirts of the Marvel Universe. Ales Kot is cooking up some strange and fascinating plot threads. Having an issue with a big focus on M.O.D.O.K. is simply amazing. He is often portrayed as more of a novelty when it comes to his appearances but Kot is fleshing him out in bizarre and wonderful ways. Michael Walsh's is art captures the vibe Kot is setting up. You can feel the secrecy going on and it's always a treat to see how he lays each scene out. There is a slight disjointed feel as we don't see the other main characters from this book but the abundance of M.O.D.O.K. makes up for it. You just might not look at M.O.D.O.K. the same way after this. This is my favorite AVENGERS title. I can't get enough of it. Read Full Review

    Overall while this issue does not win any awards for innovation it is a solid book that balances the exposition and character work well with a strong art team keeping the pace up and flowing. In an age where people are complaining about the sheer number of Avengers titles this stands out as one that is definitely unique and one to check out. Read Full Review
