He loves youRe-read 2016This one was a buddy read with my fellow Shallow Comic Readers, initiated by our own sassy Brit, as an homage to the American colonies Thanksgiving Day celebrationaka Turkey Day. Because according to him there was no bigger turkey than the Secret Invasion storyline.Now, I remembered loving it, but I pretty much expected to change my mind when all of the other kids in the clubhouse started nodding along with him.So, it was with a feeling of dread that I picked this one bac [...]

Shapeshifting aliens called Skrulls have replaced key figures on Earth, including some Marvel superheroes – who can you trust? Welcome to Secret Invasion aka Duuuuuuuuuuuh: The Comic! It’s a Marvel event written by Brian Bendis so I wasn’t expecting it to be good – and I was right, it wasn’t! But ‘tis turkey season so why not scoff down a turkey like Secret Invasion? How you feel about this comic depends on whether or not you enjoy emotionless superhero action, particularly the sort [...]

I re-read this for a Turkey Genocide Day group read. I originally read it when it was first published and didn't like it much at the time. Back then, I also read all the countless unnecessary tie-ins across Marvel's entire line and, when contemplating this re-read, I thought 'Maybe if I just read the core book it'll read better with all the extraneous fat cut away' aaaaannnd, sorry Anne, it still sucked. So, why don't I like it?For starters, the entire concept had been done before, in a much les [...]

Mirrored on my personal comics blog The Raving AsgardianThis is the trade paperback collecting the 2008 Marvel Comics event. This reprints the entire eight issue miniseries but none of the tie-ins. The numerous tie-ins have their own trade paperback collections. It features the work of Brian Bendis, Marvel’s top writer and Leinil Yu, one of the “superstar” artists under exclusive contract with the publisher.The main villains here are the Skrulls, a shape shifting alien race that used their [...]

The Skrulls have come to Earth. They have infiltrated every group of super powered heroes. Now the Earth's mightiest don't know who they can trust and the world's at stake.I love the concept of the shape shifting Skrulls learning to assimilate powers and become undetectable in order to take over the planet Earth. I did feel they could have been a little smarter about it by killing or capturing the heroes smart enough to stop them, but the story was still strong. Even The Watcher showed up to rec [...]

Well this was stupid. Not like "OMG WHAT DID I JUST READ" but more like "Why did I read this?" So Skrulls are in town. Do you know who they are? They're shapeshifters. This pisses off a lot of people cause one second you think you're with your wife, the next it's a green face with a evil grin in your face. Fucked up huh? Could make for some compelling storytelling. Besides a few moments (One included Mr. Fantastic, another including Jessica) the rest of the reveals or fights come off as flat or [...]

I finally got around to picking up a copy of this. I read the New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Avengers The Initiative, Ms. Marvel (War Bird/Carol Danvers) issues along with Dark Avengers which come directly out of the finish on this so I had a good handle on what happened around the event. Overall a pretty decent job.

To me Secret Invasion has one of the greatest lines in Marvel history. (Courtesy of Nick Fury): "He loves you""He Who?""God""Yeah? Well my God has a hammer!"

Man was I excited the first time I read this. I distinctly recall feeling like Bendis had been plotting this ever since he got his first gig writing whatever Marvel 616 book he'd been handed, and he built it for ages while we innocently stood by.It's harder to read this book out of context of what had built up before - what signs were there that we didn't know how to read, all the storylines that were leading into this, and trying to remember who the hell was who, where and when. I'm struggling [...]

I'm a little torn on this one. On the one hand, Bendis has crafted a massive, Marvel Universe-spanning blockbuster of a thrill ride of a mystery of a crossover. The plot unfolds at a breakneck pace, leading to bigger and bigger superfights that just plain look cool. On the other hand, though, this is pretty messy, and doesn't necessarily have the payoff promised by the previous several months of New Avengers and Mighty Avengers stories.First of all, the major players in this are very spread out, [...]

By itself, this is very quick and enjoyable read. However, as the culmination of over a year (or 5 if you believe Marvel's hype) plotting, scheming, and forshadowing it's kind of a let-down. The Skrulls' master plan falls apart pretty quickly and the elaborate conspiracy boils down to a pretty standard superhero slugfest that takes up the bulk of the last three issues. Despite that, there is a lot to like: some humorous touches, some pretty clever twists, and a welcome and unexpected call back t [...]

This probably deserves 4 stars (on my scale), but I had some unanswered questions and confusion, and disappointment over some changes as a result of the Secret Invasion. Readers should probably pair this with The Mighty Avengers, Vol. 3: Secret Invasion, Vol. 1and DEFINITELY read in parallel with The Mighty Avengers, Vol. 4: Secret Invasion, Vol. 2.

Básicamente se trata de que los Skrulls reemplazan a muchos superhéroes y personalidades importantes del mundo para después invadir el planeta.Lei en algunas reviews que este comic es divertido, y si, es divertido. Leí también que es malo y no es necesariamente malo, pero los díalogos si son flojos y la historia si se siente incompleta. Bendis usa muchísimo espacio en peleas, peleas gigantes con un millón de héroes y skrulls, hay skrulls como el super skrull, hay skrulls como x-men, hay [...]

Danger Will Robinson! Spoilers ahead! I think Brian Michael Bendis writes masterfully solo characters, his run on Daredevil is amazing, what he did in Alias is really good, the spiderwoman he wrote after Secret Invasion is fun and interesting. Wheneverhe writes an EVENT (that´s how they are calling the crossover stories with some enduring consecuences for the general continuity of the general universe of their stories) he has to put so many characters in, that that there is really no character [...]

This is the second best of Bendis’ big crossover events (the first one is House of M for me). I really enjoy the epicness of the story and how far it begins (you need to check the New Avngers tie-ins for understanding this). When I was starting with the reading of New Avengers series I couldn't imagine that the things from the first volumes are going to lead to this event, almost 40 issues later. I don’t believe that Bendis was fully aware for this links and hints from New Avnegers title whe [...]

This is graphic/comic book that tells the story of the "Secret Invasion" by the Skrull of Earth. The Skrull Empire's planets have been devastated and they've been plotting this for some time make great (and extremely convoluted) preparations. As I've noted elsewhere I date back to the Silver age of comics. I haven't kept up since than and am reading some of the collections and graphic novels of the updates and so on. My experience with the Skrull dates back to the Skrull Kree war comics (Avenger [...]

Secret Invasion is action packed with some big events, but my still limited superhero knowledge meant I was a little confused and lost in places! I spent a lot of time on and quizzing my Boyfriend to work out who was who and I still couldn't tell you them all!The Skrulls have a clever plan to invade Earth. Over many years they have replaced heroes with identical Skrull agents, and now the superheroes have no idea who they can trust. Tony Stark, having positioned himself as the most powerful man [...]

This is a pretty good story that draws on some interesting bits of Marvel history. It's a lot more fun, less serious, and less divisive than Civil War, and it leaves the Marvel universe in a better place (though the obvious new villain at the end of the book could get tiresome.) The big death toward the end of the book seems completely senseless, but I'm not too annoyed since it's not a particularly large character.Unfortunately, Brian Michael Bendis uses this main book as the guidepost for all [...]

I read this just to catch up with what happened between volume one and volume two of Matt Fraction's Invincible Iron Man, so I am probably not the target audience for it. That said, it is easily the least interesting of Marvel's Big Event books I've read so far -- plot, fight, plot, wait, was there supposed to be characterization in there? fight, fight, plot, we've noticed the plot doesn't make sense, let's blame it on religion, plot, plot, plot,fight, the plot still doesn't make sense but surel [...]

Well it was better than Bendis' last big crossover event. The idea for this crossover was great, and the execution was pretty good. That is if you're reading both Avengers series alongside it. The conclusion needed some big events though. It felt more like throwing everything into a soup and then watching it drain. The big changes to the status quo felt kinda contrived as well. Well contrived isn't the right word. It just feels like they didn't properly justify it. As is typical for these things [...]

So I just read this as part of my 'Marvel Avengers/Secret Warriors' catch up marathon-read. I suppose it's a bit 'neat' in that we have lots of Super Heroes fighting Super Skrulls and we don't really know who is an imposter and who is real.The writing is fine, the art is fine but the crux of my issue with this storyline is that it seems to just hit the 'reset' button on lots of very important events which occurred in the Marvel Universe over the previous few years and it does so in a way that fe [...]

This was BRILLIANT! I loved it! I got very excited when I read the first New Avengers graphic novel, the Civil War storyline felt epic, but now I know what truly epic is! FANTASTIC! For a comic book geek it is cool having just about every Marvel Superhero appear in one book, it is cool and fun, yet has a strong story running through it, and keeps you guessing who's who right through it. It never fails to please. There are also amazing comic book covers throughout, which give a nice pause at inte [...]

Certainly one of the better Marvel events I've read. Usually these big crossovers will start out strong, fizzle out by the 4th or 5th issue, and then completely die out on the last issue. I thought Secret Invasion stayed consistently strong throughout all eight issues. Really, my own complaint is, where the hell did Captain America come from? He's suddenly back from the dead and not one character seems to be surprised by it. Literally not one line of dialogue mentioning it. They just carry on fi [...]

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It probably isn't worth four stars but when you go in expecting a 2 star and get a 3 star, it somehow becomes a 4 star book.This event led to all of the series rebootsd then some. Chronology is always an issue with these things. There were a few compilation graphic novels i should have read AFTER this, instead of before, but ce la vie. I don't know how well it does as a stand alone if you have been following some of the Avengers storylines, but if you [...]

I cannot say I'm a huge fan of big ensemble stories. I usually like when characters meet, but when what seems every single one of them do, well, I feel it's often close to a mess.Or maybe I still need to get used to the graphic novel format that develops stories way faster.I like my story and characters to have time to evolve, which to be fair I agree is a little bit difficult when you're trying to fight a Skrull invasion or planning one but still

This series wasn't terrible. It is just kind of disjointed and hard to follow if you aren't also reading the tie-in books. I think that if marvel is going to do these event's with the tie in books, they should make sure that the core series can still be enjoyed on it's own. Most people can't afford to buy the majority of the comics that a company puts out for a half year span, just so they know what is going on.
