    • Buddy read with some Shallow Friends!I read this one back in 2009 and loved it, but I wasn't sure how well it would hold up.Turns out, pretty well!It's not a perfect story, but in comparison to some of the longer events I've read lately, this one had more of a coherent feel to it. Like, the whole story was contained within these pages. I didn't feel like I needed to search out tie-ins, or read anything before I read this. JustBOOM. One and done.The story is pretty simple.It opens with Luke Cage [...]


    • An astonishing beginning but a poor ending.This TPB edition collect the 5 issues of the mini-series “Secret War”, that it’s a totally different comic book event than the one titled “Secret Wars” (plural).Creative Team:Writer: Brian Michael BendisIllustrator: Gabrielle Dell’OttoASTONISHING START WITH POOR FINALEThis brief comic book miniseries begins with three kickin’-butt issues but sadly, the remaining last two issues were so lame that at the end I thought that the fairest rating [...]


    • Nick Fury discovers that the Latverian government is secretly bankrolling a bunch of second-rate supervillains to cause terror stateside and decides to take the fight to their doorstep with a little help from his friends. Except the superheroes don’t know how far Fury is willing to go to protect his homeland…I honestly thought Secret War might be good as it’s from around the time of Brian Michael Bendis’ Daredevil run, which is superb. But nope - Secret War is an utter nightmare of a mes [...]


    • What does Nick Fury look like?Does he look like some wishy-washy namby-pamby pushover? Does he look like the guy who lets terrorists get away even if the president tells him to do so?What does Nick Fury look like?He looks like the guy who gets the job done regardless of the consequences.I don't know why I took so long to read Secret War. It must have been brain damage because it makes no sense that I waited this long. Nick Fury demonstrates with simplicity why he's not to be messed with. When he [...]


    • 2nd review: This is my third time re-reading this formative tale of one of white-and-old-Nick Fury’s last outings in the Marvel universe.The art is *so* beautiful, the models for our heroes are so unusually gorgeous, I hardly recognise anyone I'm reading about. It's like I'm looking at Earth-619, where symmetry and smooth skin are omnipresent.I love that Bendis called out one of the most obvious-in-hindsight angles of all the capes-and-tech types: where the fuck does the funding come from for [...]


    • I wasn't reading Marvel when this was first published, so I missed it. I'm glad I went back for it. As far as "event" comics go (and I'm not sure how much of an event this was at the time) this is remarkably focused and character driven. I've seen the changes, mostly relatively subtle, that this single story brought to the Marvel Universe. I wish I'd read this before Original Sin, actually, because it would have been good to see where it started. This is Bendis, so much of the book actually revo [...]


    • Captain America. Spider-Man. Daredevil. Wolverine. Black Widow. Luke Cage. On a top secret under the rader black ops mission lead by S.H.I.E.L.D. head Nick Fury to overthrow (and assassinate) the government of another country, that's going to do terrorist acts on US soil. Queue morally questionable actions of noble heroes, memory-wipes, retributions-fallout and morality questions without answers. Yup, they don't make comicbook storylines like this anymore these days. Compact, to-the-point, thoug [...]


    • Nick Fury finds a disturbing connection between a tech villain and the government of Latveria. He leads (and misleads) a team of superheroes in a preemptive strike against Latveria's prime minister, Lucia Von Bardas, claiming it as a defensive move to prevent terrorist attacks. Hilarity ensues.The title seems to indicate it's going to relate to the Secret Wars of 1985, but the story is actually an allegory about war in general and a couple in particular some Americans might be familiar with. Ben [...]


    • A very good espionage inspired super hero story. The painted art is in the same league as someone like Alex Ross, and really helps give the story more production value. I remember when this first came out, and it took forever because of the art. But it was always worth waiting for. It's also a prequel of sorts to Bendis' New Avengers run, as many of the characters who take part in Fury's 'Secret War' eventually become New Avengers. There's also some plot threads that hang over. The SHIELD files [...]


    • Captain America, Daredevil, Spidey, Logan, Widow, Fury, X-Meni a Fantastic Four v jednom. Myslím, že to mluví za vše :D



    • Secret War may be the story that started the darkening of Nick Fury that came to a conclusion in Original Sin, a decade later. It's definitely an interesting alternative look at the Marvel universe that replaces the usual four-color fighting with well, kind of dark-and-gritty fighting. The result is a delightfully "realistic" look at how our heroes might operate on the world stage.The chronology is a little challenging, since the story operates in two timeframes. It takes especial care when the [...]


    • I LOVE it when superheroes take off their masks, stand in a circle, and hash-out their political differences. I especially love it when superheroes are forced to admit that they have made bad choices and poor decisions. A brilliantly structured story with moody, atmospheric artwork. Suspenseful and tense. Great dialogue with some fantastic character development. "Secret War" definitely made an impact on this reader. And it made an impact on the Marvel Universe; the fallout from this storyline ha [...]


    • Amazing artwork in this graphic novel. The flashbacks and flashforwards can get a little confusing, but they make the story more interesting. It's an intriguing story of a guy trying to do the right thing when his superiors don't want to help.




    • "It will be our secret war. It shall be ours only."A plot that spans over betrayal, deception and mystery combined with some admirable realistic artwork. Six major heroes are recruited by Nick Fury to do his dirty work and then walk away completely oblivious of their deed. The S.H.I.E.L.D. in its complete anonymity serves the function of being a ruthless organization as it does not hesitate in manipulating even the symbol of American splendor - Captain America to do what it thinks is needed, des [...]


    • Well, this was just horrible, story-wise. The art is marvelous and Dell'Otto deserves every praise he receives. Truly great art. The writing in itself wasn't bad. But the story Oh boy, the story. First of all, while this is pretty much a closed story, I don't really see any purpose to this story. Fury finds a threat and decides to act on his "own" after the US President tells him to stand down. I don't have any problem with this premise but the way they chose to follow up on that was just plain [...]


    • An interesting premise with fantastic art that starts out fun and ends abruptly.I read this to supplement my recent reading of the New Avengers Omnibus but honestly, it doesn't add much to the story. Almost a blip on the Marvel events radar, though I presume it does set the 'tone' for upcoming events.Still, it's an easy read with great art and an interesting smorgasbord of Heroes to boot. I wonder if it was almost a pilot run at the upcoming New Avengers series Bendis was to do.If you're bored a [...]


    • Liked the artwork although pretty dark throughout. It fits well with the story. First appearance of Daisy Johnson who has a big role in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV. show. It's a thick TPB until you find out half of it is Secret Case Files. Up next is New Avengers vol. 1 of my Bendis Avengers read.


    • Mucho ruido y muchas nueces. Historia bien contada y dibujo tremendo. Lástima, como siempre me pasa que leo "shared universes" tan grandes como Marvel o DC, la sensación de que a la larga da todo más o menos lo mismo. Muy linda la edición deluxe española, de la que admito no haber leído todos los extras. Quizás si algún día me lo compro le dé una releída íntegra y termime escalando una estrella si el ojo crítico me lo permite.


    • Un crossover que pudo ser mucho más interesante. Nick Fury y su guerra secreta no pasan de ser una lectura entretenida.La historia tiene ciertos detalles interesantes como el financiamiento de la tecnología de los villanos de parte de fuerzas terroristas, pero lo que en realidad destaca en esta publicación son las ilustraciones de Gabreille del Otto, fantásticas.


    • Started out really good, but felt kind of rushed by the end. I'd have liked to have spent more time reading about the actual war itself. In order to get a good sense of the wrongness of it, you want to know more about what actually happened. The artwork is gorgeous, thought sometimes the color was too dark, especially with a black background.


    • El dibujo está increíble, realista, prolijo y con unos detalles envidiables. La historia es buena, se deja leer. Bendis siempre me pareció unos de los guionistas que mejores diálogos saben escribir.Me dio la sensación que el comic podría haber sido escrito en planea década del 80 muy oscuro y realista. Y bastante pesimista.



    • Stunning artwork and a great story. I really enjoyed it. A must read overall, especially for Marvel continuity.


    • Me gustan muchos más los gráficos que vi en Civil War, pero la historia que hay detrás de todo y acercarme más a SHIELD me ha encantado. No sabía mucho de esa parte de Marvel, y me ha maravillado.



    • Book Info: This collection contains Secret War issues #1-5.Other Useful Reviews: Anthony's review, Aaron's reviewABSOLUTE RATING: 3.5/5 stars (Rounded Up)STANDARDIZED RATING: <4/5 stars>For years, it's been known that Phineas Mason (a.k.a. the Tinkerer) has been arming American supercriminals with high-tech weaponry and equipment. And despite the best efforts of law enforcement, this underground weapons dealer had managed to avoid capture for quite a while. But after repeated interrogati [...]


    • In short, this story is about how Nick Fury secretly assembles a team of superhero to overthrow a country. Yep, it sounds terrific. But sadly, it executed with a poor ending. I expect some sort of complex explanation, a surprise, but it just ended with an over simplified epilog. Maybe five issues wasn't long enough for this kind of premise.The best part of Secret War is the artwork though. Jeez, my eyes are blessed! I found myself starring at those impressive and beautiful illustration for minut [...]
