Bring All His Mad Plans To Fruition And We Rocket Towards The Jaw Dropping Conclusion Of What ComicBookResources Calls A Great, Anything Goes Series Collecting Secret Warriors All out war is taking place between S.H.I.E.L.D., Hydra, and Leviathan As in all war there are casualties on every side.Night is the most somber of the volumes so far A lot of things go wrong and pieces have to be picked

is the most somber of the volumes so far A lot of things go wrong and pieces have to be picked up because like it or not the war isn t over I certainly expected things to get gritty with the nature of the series, but it s still sad at times.The issue was marred by mediocre artwork The previous issues the artwork was really strong, but the art in this volume was quite different in a bad way Alex looks like a Morlock and Daisy isn t even recognizable.I m hoping the last volume goes out with a bang because so far this series is only solid and not spectacular I m fully on board with Hickman now Took me some fits and starts to get invested in the kind of sometimes overly intricate plotlines he loves working with, and his techno speak can sometimes sound a little hokey, but after this and the last Secret Warriors, as well as his Fantastic Four run, I can safely say I m a fan He s like a halfway point between Grant Morrison s drugged out ideas and Geoff Johns straightforward but fun superhero plotting I find myself engaged in his writing and actio I m fully on board with Hickman now Took me some fits and starts to get invested in the kind of sometimes overly intricate plotlines

halfway point between Grant Morrison s drugged out ideas and Geoff Johns straightforward but fun superhero plotting I find myself engaged in his writing and action while still having to take a second to think about where all this story could go Secret Warriors has a little less of the sci fi geekery in it, but it s still an incredibly thorough spy story with all the twists and turns you d expect from something like that.I ve said a lot of this in previous reviews, but I just can t get over how much Hickman has made me like Nick Fury as a character I don t think I ever gave a damn about Fury except in his Sam Jackson film incarnation Now he s one of my favorite characters There s nothing super about him beyond the fact that he seems to almost have a superpowered ability to manipulate people He s just the smartest, toughest, meanest guy around, but he ll do whatever it takes to keep the world as he sees it safe Secret Warriors constantly puts out crises of conscious for the reader, and that sucks you in evenThis is just flat out a great series.I won t spoil plot stuff because that s the whole joy of reading this Just suffice it to say that so far, everything Secret Warriors has set up has paid off, and I expect the next and final volume to do that in spades The run of stories from Hickman to date has been stellar, so when I started digging into this one, I couldn t help but feel disappointed Something seemsoff pretty quickly By the halfway point, the downturn in my glee while reading is unmistakeable.I think the writing is still good some of the confrontations are suitably stark and minimalist , so I think it must be the art It just looks sloppy, rushed compared to the first class work on previous books, this art just takes some of the ep The run of stories

the first class work on previous books, this art just takes some of the epic away, making it feel like just another comic book The worst is that Fury s face often lookscasual, rather than the chiseled from granite that he s always been.The book coasts to a seen it before conclusion and at the end of it all I have to say I m disappointed at this chapter of Secret Warriors This series has never let me down until now The dark mood just gets darker as things continue to go worse and worse the longer the war between Hydra and Leviathan continues to drag the world down with them And it seems the only force truly standing in their way are Nick Fury s allies, whose numbers continue to diminish with every mission.This is no longer about characters andabout the larger conflict and we just see mission after mission either succeed at a terrible cost or with limited heroes barely getting through by the skin of The dark mood just gets darker as things continue to go worse and worse the longer

You learn a lotabout Mikel Fury s black team, what happened with Sebastian, the follow up to some of Alex s predictions from the first volume Leviathan is crumbling, Hydra us splintered and weak, Fury s forces and options are dwindling everything is speeding towards the epic finale. Decisions have consequences for our heroes, and not everyone makes it out in one piece Nice work, Hickman and team. The pace speeds up in this volume outside of the fictional world I think Jonathan Hickman must have been told to speed up as it he wasn t going to get as many issues on this as he thought We skip on in time and flash back to set up a second caterpillar team run by Nick s son Mikel But somehow it s just not entertaining Vitti s art is solid but the fill ins aren t up to it The eventual use of Mikel s team seems like a waste of time and I m sure they would have had a longer shot if the seri The pace speeds up in this volume outside of the fictional world I think Jonathan Hickman must have been told to speed up as it he wasn t going to get as many issues on this as he thought We skip on in time and flash back to set up a second caterpillar team run by Nick s son Mikel But somehow it s just not entertaining Vitti s art is solid but the fill ins aren t up to it The eventual use of Mikel s team seems like a waste of time and I m sure they would have had a longer shot if the series continued as expected , the time jump skips over various escalations in the 3 way war and I m just bored At the end, Nick forces the situation into what next volume will be the endgame.Overall though I ve never engaged with the central premise of secret warriors as I ve seen it before in Nick Fury vs Shield 20 years ago To see it happen again to Nick makes him look like a putz so this series bad ass super spy routine doesn t really stack up Death follows Hickman as if he invites in It has been a couple months since I read Vol 4, but Vol 5 jumps six months forward The squad is out trying to win another battle for Fury The war goes on against Hydra and Leviathan Only now they Hydra and Leviathan have a truth, don t worry Fury has a plan Heroes fall Villains fall Plus we find out what happens to Druid after being kicked off the team last volume Plus another of Fury s strike team is given a spotlight.All and all this was a re Death follows Hickman as if he invites in It has been a couple months since I read Vol 4, but Vol 5 jumps six months forward The squad is out trying to win another battle for Fury The war goes on against Hydra and Leviathan Only now they Hydra and Leviathan have a truth, don t worry Fury has a plan Heroes fall Villains fall Plus we find out what happens to Druid after being kicked off the team last volume Plus another of Fury s strike team is given a spotlight.All and all this was a really fun ride It was a fast read Lots of good action There are some sad moments in the book when loved characters die, but there are also great reunions Great read If you haven t been reading Hickman you are missing out A lot of changes happen here, some of which I guess took place behind the scenes Hydra and Leviathan are at war with each other though I m not terribly clear as to why I guess it has been a while since I read the previous volume , and Fury is stepping in to perpetuate that war and diminish their numbers There is a climactic confrontation with casualties on all sides, as some personnel changes, though at the end of this volume, the future remains uncertain It is definitely a cliffhanger fo A lot of changes happen here, some of which I guess took place behind the scenes Hydra and Leviathan are at war with each other though I m not terribly clear as to why I guess it has been a while since I read the previous volume , and Fury is stepping in to perpetuate that war and diminish their numbers There is a climactic confrontation with casualties on all sides, as some personnel changes, though at the end of this volume, the future remains uncertain It is definitely a cliffhanger for the next one, and though it is rather short covering only four issues , a lot happens here This was an above average volume
