    Comics Bulletin - Sara McDonald Oct 6, 2011

    Secret Avengers has been shaping up to be some of the best mainstream superhero writing Warren Ellis has done in a while. With the book's focus more on behind-the-scenes missions than the flashier, more traditional superhero tones of the other Avengers books, Ellis's style and sensibilities make him a good fit to take over as writer. Ellis continues to show how adept he is with writing espionage in Secret Avengers #17. Read Full Review

    The characters are secondary to the story " required only as part of the framework through which Ellis can explore mad but oddly convincing ideas that, if not rooted in science, certainly seem as though they are. Read Full Review

    Secret Avengers #17 is an entertaining standalone story, but one that I won't be holding in high regard. It was essentially a Michael Bay flick on page, so take that for what it's worth. Read Full Review

    These issues since Ellis took over are just what Secret Avengers needed. They read just like his Global Frequency series set in the Marvel Universe. Even though this issue missed a little bit, it doesn't squelch my enthusiasm one iota. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 2, 2011

    The issue does include a very cool cover by John Cassaday (and I can only imagine how much more I would have liked the issue if he had done the art inside as well). The story itself might have been saved by some great art but this is anything but, and in just a single issue I'm left on the fence again about picking up the next one. Hit-and-Miss.
