    What better way to go out for the team up of Spencer/Eaton than to finish strong on one of my favorite books with one of my favorite characters. I hope Warren Ellis can keep this momentum going! Read Full Review

    What's the best tie-in for Fear Itself? Easy: Secret Avengers #15. There is no action in the book, and it all takes place in a single room, but Nick Spencer did an amazing job on this issue, so much so that it is my favorite one of the series so far. There's a lot of discussion about death in comics that we've all had at one point or another, but Spencer really hits it on the head in this issue and how characters feel about it, hero or not. I highly HIGHLY recommend this issue for any comic fan because we've all talked about death in comics one time or another. Read Full Review

    Um, okay. This was an odd comic in that nothing REALLY happened. In a way, the premise here was interesting, with the reporters representing "real" people and Black Widow representing comic book characters, with each side arguing why their version of death was worse. My problem was that that kind of debate didn't make for a great, page-turning experience... I was into this comic for the first couple of pages, then I found my attention drifting a bit, and by the end I was wondering what the point was. Like I said, I enjoyed the first few pages here, but I kind of think that this argument would have worked better in like 1/4 the pages. Read Full Review

    Spencer's previous two Secret Avengers issues may have veered towards the hokey side of things now and again, but they were genuinely heartfelt stories that fleshed out the lead characters. This issue does even less for Widow than her Fear Itself one-shot did. One of these days we might actually get to see Natasha and her friends react to Bucky's death in a meaningful way, but not yet.

    Secret Avengers #15Posted: Thursday, August 4, 2011By: Ray Tate Nick SpencerScott Eaton, Jamie Mendoza (i), Frank D'Armata (c)Marvel Only Scott Eaton's scrumptious rendition of the Black Widow makes this book worth anything. Jamie Mendoza honors Eaton's pencils with superb inking that enhances the play of light on Natasha's leather jumpsuit, and Frank D'Armata's colors offer a natural look to the fleshtones and Natasha's red hair. As to the rest, Secret Avengers is an unparalleled tribute to idiocy. Read Full Review

    Wow the artists tried really hard to draw Black Widow’s ass and boobs in every scene. There is some interesting conversation about character death in comics and it seemed like to me that Nick Spencer was trying to justificate character resurrections. IMO, character resurrections are stupid because no one cares about Bucky’s death because he comes back two years later. Captain America died twice and is back. Bruce Banner died in Secret Empire but they brought him back. Clint Barton died in Avengers Disassembled but was resurrected in House of M. Vision died in Avengers Disassembled but was resurrected in Young Avengers. Wasp died in Secret Invasion but she’s fine. Magneto died in House of M but was resurrected in New Avengers. Elektra more
