    Without a doubt, the way you have to get this comic book kinda sucks. Sure, it's "free," but you have to spend $25 on Marvel stuff to get it. If you're already planning on buying a LEGO set or action figure that Toys R Us sells, then this is an added bonus and actually a really fun read, but I can't say this is worth an out-of-your-way trip just to get the book. What this issue does do really well is get people pumped for ARMOR WARS and if this is the direction James Robinson is taking it, then I'm all in. Storywise, this is a blast. Artwise, it's a bit rough because of inks and colors, but artist Marcio Takara will be drawing ARMOR WARS when it comes out. For what it is, it's a good and fun book that really gets you excited for the next step in SECRET WARS. Read Full Review

    Overall, Secret Wars: Armor Wars #1/2 is a solid prequel issue that made me far more excited for Secret Wars: Armor Wars coming this June than I had previously been. It's not often that you see a prequel issue offered exclusively to a toy store, and you wouldn't expect a creative team of this caliber to be featured on such a project. In that case this was a pleasant surprise, but there is only so much you can do in twelve pages. While a good introduction to the upcoming series, this issue is by no means a reason to go out and spend $25 at Toys R Us. With that said, if you were planning on buying some Avengers: Age of Ultron toys this issue is a great extra that should persuade you to buy them at the toy store behemoth, especially if you're looking forward to the Secret Wars event Read Full Review

    So, would I recommend you rush out to Toys R' Us and grab this issue? Well, no, it's not that amazing, and unless you're going to be a Secret Wars completist, I wouldn't recommend spending $25 dollars at the store just to get it. But on its own, it's a decent enough setup to astory that seems to be at least somewhat intriguing. Read Full Review
