    If you're enjoying Secret Invasion and wish to expand the story with some non-essential, supplimental material, this is a very good first issue that may actually be worth your money. Read Full Review

    I was pleasantly surprised by Secret Invasion: Front Line, as I've never really been able to love any other Front Line-centric series before. I wouldn't say it's required reading for anyone only mildly interested in Marvel's shenanigans, but it's at least as good as most of the other event tie-ins (Avengers books notwithstanding).

    Comics Bulletin - Steven M. Bari/Paul Brian McCoy Jul 1, 2008

    Secret Invasion: Front Line is off to a nicely paced start with a fair-sized cast of interesting characters. And it's easy on the eyes, too. Even without Hot Action Doctor, this is a very good looking book, and yet another Secret Invasion tie-in that may end up being better than the main series. Read Full Review

    Despite a lot of good elements going into the creation of "Front Line", something about it fails to click with me. Reed does a good job of quickly introducing and humanizing the cast. With an extended pre-attack opening sequence, a focus on a wide cast of nobodies, and a street-level view of larger-than-life disaster, "Cloverfield" feels like a definite reference point. Unfortunately, the problem seems to be one of familiarity. Where the "Civil War" version of the series included some big superhero names and recognizable civilians, this incarnation tries to engage you purely on the strength of a largely new and unknown cast -- and that's going to be a hard sell for anyone.
