This is a fantastic, utterly enjoyable complement to Secret Invasion. I feel like the information and character work in this volume is good and crucial to filling out the plot of this crossover that it almost doesn't make sense to read one without the other. I had so many concerns and gripes with Secret Invasion (which I still loved), but this set of complementary issues fills in pretty much all of the gaps. Any lingering, unanswered threads get dealt with pretty soundly here. I'd even love to ...more

It's "The Avengers" without the Avengers.

I've been mostly enjoying Bendis' New Avengers run, and ths collection was no exception. However, the stories contained in here were being published at the same time as Marvel's Secret Invation event, also being written by Bendis, so this collection feels like "deleted scenes" from that storyline. Still mostly good stories, but with both teams of Avengers occupied by that event, the focus here shifts to side characters. The bulk of these issues are flash

I love Bendis' style with his New Avengers stuff. The Luke Cage/Jessica Jones relationship is so believable. You really feel their pain when they're going through what they go through in the opening pages of this book. The insight into the Skrull's plans for the invasion was also quite interesting, although my relative unfamiliarity with the history of the Skrull race was a bit of a hurdle to get past. Reading this book and the Mighty Avengers tie-ins really addded to my enjoyment of the main ...more

Had to go with vol5 as I don't have vol9 in different edition so first half is something I already read but wanted to know the end of secrete invasion so badly :-)
Story good, drawings great, pages were turning.... To me most of things were new so it definitely helped me to bring some light into background story....
on other hand has to confirm that this issue was more explanatory than action filled. Story between Jessica and Luke... hmm, don't want to comment. Liked the Echo and Wolverine tho, g

Haven't read House of M and Secret Invasion recently? Then this volume is going to be baffling and disappointing. There are some good stories here, but it's far too tied to other books to read coherently.

Awesome line from the Skrull Queen: "As long as they are left alone to eat, sleep, watch their tv and fornicate, most of the human race will go along with whatever they are told to do." Bwah-ha-ha!

The main tie-in issues to Secret Invasion. Mostly better then Secret Invasion but incredibly hard to follow without reading the main storyline.
