The end of one arc that sets up for an even bigger arc... Matt Kindt is KING, Braithwaite's art is incredible, and this is going to be my favorite book for as long as Valiant keeps their top talent on it.

Please... seriously, I'm begging you Marvel.... please bring Ron Garney back. I get that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and I am sure Alec Morgan works really hard to make this book happen.... but this is not the artwork for this book. Daredevil deserves better than this, Charles Soule deserves better than this, America.... deserves better than this.

I should say this much: The story was well done by Charles Soule, and that alone makes it a 8.5+ but the artwork is just so uncomfortable that I could barely enjoy the story.

I've been avoiding Secret Empire like its the plague, and for a while I thought Dan Slott was just going to pull in meaningless tie ins just to get by. I was SO wrong. He used this as an opportunity to end a huge era of Peter Parker. The fall of Parker Industries (which first appeared back in Superior Spider-man) Its moments like this that prove that keeping a writer on a comic for YEARS.. pays of more

It's hard to believe this will only be a 5 issue run. They are setting up for what could easily be a captivating 16 issue major story arc, HOWEVER, it is just the origin story of Black Bolt and Medusa... with that in mind, give it a read or refer it to a friend, its a great way to prepare for the new Inhuman show coming to ABC.

A tribute issue acting as a transition filler for the next story arc. These past 2 issues really feel like a comic from the 60s and 70s. Tons of dialogue but filled with interesting lesser know facts of American History. You don't need to read these issues, but I recommend it, it was fun. Its almost like a light little break from saving the world, but I am sure Tomasi is getting ready to flip the more

It was overly simplistic, the villain was laughable and the ending left me saying "Wait, really?" in the most sarcastic manner.
