    Siege: Embedded looks to potentially be the Siege event that's not to be missed. In the end Siege will portray the downfall of Osborne through pleny of super powered fist fights and battles, but Siege: Embedded will chronicle the actions of some closer to real life heroes: the serious reporters (not "entertainers" like Beck and Keller) who serve as the cornerstone of the "Fourth Branch," and who at least try to keep the demagogues honest.

    Overall this issue proved to be a great companion to the first issue of the main series. This tie-in may have more to offer than past Front Line series have, and given that Siege is only 4 issues, readers may want to consider picking this tie-in up to add some additional depth to the event as it progresses.

    "Siege: Embedded" #1 provides two plots for future issues to follow up on, both of which show potential. This issue, unfortunately, presents neither well. The Urich plot is fuelled by coincidence and a sense of unavoidability, while the Keller plot doesn't have a chance to get going. Hopefully, as "Siege" moves forward, the possibilities presented here will be exploited. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Jan 5, 2010

    Perhaps things will pick up once we get to the meat of Brian Reed's story: I always enjoy seeing big Marvel Universe events depicted from a more grounded perspective, and it may be that Reed has a lot more to offer than this clunky setup hints at. However, for many readers, one issue is all they need to decide whether to continue reading a book or not, and at $3.99 I can't foresee many people sticking around for the second part of this story.

    Now do I feel that this is required reading? Absolutely not. In fact the only ones who will really appreciate this are those who are so invested into Siege that they are compelled to devour every morsel pertaining to the event. Of course this is only issue 1 of 4 and things may turn around. But at this point in time I wouldn’t be able to sincerely recommend this as anything other than filler. Read Full Review
