    Focusing on the early days of Captain America's regime, the new spotlight on the Inhuman, Inferno, gives this story a powerful character arc to follow. While the rest of the characterization does falter, the art and compelling plot make this a must-read for any SECRET EMPIRE or INHUMANS fans. Read Full Review

    But overall, Secret Warriors is a complete package. Rosenberg’s writing is witty and fun while never losing sight of the stakes of the plot. Garron’s art helps the jokes and characterization in the script land while also providing strong visual storytelling. This iteration of the team has a lot in common with another group of misfits that came together in the wake of an event: Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s a sense that this squad has everything on the line, and they’re going to stop at nothing to complete their mission, even if it means they’ll die trying. Secret Empire might not be for everyone, but Secret Warriors might just be the reason is was all worth it. Read Full Review

    Javier Garron did a wonderful job with the artwork of this book. I liked the was all the characters looked including the guest stars. His pictures were subtle and not over the top, his display of Inferno's power was great. So far all the artist Marvel has involved with this Secret Empire Hydra takeover story arc have been phenomenal. The comic artists nowadays are so talented and it seems like the talent pool in the industry is endless. Read Full Review

    This is a tie-in done right. I haven't read the core Secret Empire at all yet, but I jumped right in with this story and loved it. It doesn't feel like a big "you have to read these other ten issues to get it" tie in. It's a self-contained and fun story, and really establishes this book's mission statement. Absolutely a must-read. Read Full Review

    It's good, if a bit uninspired, but totally out of place. "Secret Empire" probably didn't need a "Hogan's Heroes." Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 25, 2017

    Marvel really shouldn't have dusted off the "Secret Warriors" name for this book, because it only invites certain expectations regrading tone, subject matter and, honestly, quality that it just can't deliver. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark May 26, 2017

    This issue does help build the world of Secret Empire as it gives us a ground level view of the way of the world. That along with Matthew Rosenberg's strong wit and Javier Garron's quality art make it worth reading, but I cannot help but feel worry this series will get bogged down by this tiresome Inhumans agenda.
