    Now let's see if Bendis can get this story in a figure-four leglock and take the title. (I know, I'm stretching here.) Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 23, 2008

    This is a mighty quick read, to be frank. Ain't a lot here but the fighty fighty. There are some nice character bits from page to page, and a few moments that really stand out as well-crafted, but overall it's a 20+ page battle royale, and if you're not a fan of the artist rendering said battle, you may not enjoy the royale so much. I greatly appreciate the forward motion in this title, but since we're seguing directly out of this into Dark Reign in ten minutes, I don't know that I'm all that psyched to see the ending. Bits of groundwork are laid for the NEXT big event here, which makes me want to ask: at what point will we get to breathe? When will the endless series of earth-shattering crossovers slow down? This isn't a bad seventh chapter of an ongoing story, but as a stand-alone issue, there's a lot of flatness between the peaks, and the deus ex machina ending set up by a flashback issue of Avengers kind of annoys me. Sure, it's 2008, but it's just as unrealistic to s Read Full Review

    "Secret Invasion" #7 sets up the final issue in the series rather nicely, but leaves me wondering how all of the pieces are going to be wrapped up. One thing is for certain, though, I will be picking up the final chapter to find out what happens. Read Full Review

    Secret Invasion #7 will certainly appeal to action fans. If you have been waiting for the moment when our heroes get to mindless smash and bash Skrulls like six-year old kids at whack-a-mole booth in a carnival then you will love Secret Invasion #7. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy/David Wallace Oct 23, 2008

    I've mentioned this before, but this is a good time to mention it again. I think it's time to bench Bendis. Let him be a project manager. Let him generate ideas. Let him have his hand in the MU just like he's got it now. But please, please, please, farm out the exploration and actual writing of his broad stroke pitches to other, better writers. Or, if that's not possible, let him keep these types of stories confined in the titles that he is already working on, like he originally wanted to do with Secret Invasion. This would have been so much better as an Avengers story than it's turning out to be as a company-wide event. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Nov 13, 2008

    The fights in this issue are not well choreographed. They are like a collection of posters patched together with speech bubbles. Its hard to follow the action. This is an entire mess and it will be interesting to see if the extra large final issue will be able to salvage this series. Read Full Review

    Go back and read my opening summary. That's all that happens. If you want to look at some big explosions and pinup style fight scenes with no real story telling or flow to them, feel free to get this then. Read Full Review
