I'm not very good at distinguishing between some of the newer X-Men writers. Most of them do a pretty decent job, much better than the insipid Chris Claremont with his hokey dialogue and dated plots. Carey is on of the few that stands out for me. He does the impossible by making the mess that is the Secret Invasion storyline seem remotely interesting. Secret Invasion is still fairly uninspiring, it is nice that it's over. It's interesting, at least to me, to note many of the other recent mega events have left a lasting effect on the Marvel Universe that has had some sort of impact. This one has not and is best left forgotten.

The art in this series is well done and consistent. But it's almost ruined by the colorist. It looks like the art has all been dipped in blue and green dye, giving it a muddy washed out out look. Most notable are scenes depicting the city. Everything is a green and purple mess.
