    Matteo Scalera's art has definitely matched Remender's story very nicely. It's stylized but appealing. Matched with Matthew Wilson's colors, there's a nice creepy feel to the arc that plays well with the idea of possession and a demon-like entity. Without a doubt, this book is nicely crafted and stays in that nice “just right” zone of being entertaining, but dark at the same time. Read Full Review

    Secret Avengers #32 is able to do all of the things a good concluding story should,it wraps up the previous events in an exciting and believable way, it creates enoughdrama and pathos to draw the reader closer to the character, and it tees up the nextstory with a cliff hanger splash-page finale. Though this title likely got lost in translationbetween Remender's other Avengers title, Uncanny Avengers #1 and Batman#13, Secret Avengers #32 is a great sleeper pick for this week.

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Nov 11, 2012

    With as much praise as I have given to the story of the arc I again cant ignore the work of Scalera. Considering the infection that The Abyss is spreading and the dark and dreary nature of the city full of criminals that inhabit it his dark style matches up well with the tone. That being said Black Widows cleavage is still ridiculous. Read Full Review

    All in all, it's another great issue of this great series, and there's a final page cliffhanger to bring readers back for what is set to be Remender's finale to his run. The team's about to have a lot to deal with, and I don't question that it's going to be an awesome ride. Especially given the fact that in two issues time, the Secret Avengers will be head to head with Franken-Castle… but that's another story entirely. Read Full Review

    Finally, it looks like things with Ant-Man are about to kick into gear. I must've missed the part when Father possessed him since I only started reading Secret Avengers again when AvX started, but it looks like the payoff for that is coming soon. Despite missing when it actually happened, because it was definitely before I jumped back onto the title, a mole in the team should make for an interesting arc. Plus, for those of you out there who don't see Eric O'Grady as a threat, I guess the next part of the story will prove or disprove your theories. History has shown us just how dangerous Hank Pym could be on certain, but what about the Ant-Man who's mostly known for being a goofball? I guess we'll all find out in the coming issues.

    Major Spoilers - Dave Conde Oct 15, 2012

    I started reading this title because it promised some big, new ideas and had the Irredeemable Ant-Man. The big ideas have been fun to explore but the explorers themselves have been getting on my nerves and the tragic human frailties of Ant-Man have been replaced by a robot. It's been at the precarious bottom of my pull list for months and may have just fallen off. I give Secret Avengers #32 two stars"not a terrible book, but there are better stories on the shelves I could spend my money on. Some of them also by Rick Remender. Read Full Review

    I simply cannot get enough of this book, and I'm ever so sad that Remender is leaving it with Marvel Now! Remender is a master at what he does, and what he does is write fantastic comic books! This issue wraps up the current story arc with another mind-numbing Hail Mary Flash Thompson play for the win. Perfect story-telling, wonderful cast, excellent character development, and beautiful art (from Scalera) solidify another stellar chapter in Secret Avengers. Not to mention, we finally explore a romance that's been building for awhile now between Valkyrie and Flash, and oh is great. Cannot recommend this book enough!
