Secret is one of those comics that will take a couple of reads before you 'get it'. It's an espionage thriller, but most of it is spent through conversations behind desks. This means there's a fair bit of dialogue, but it's all in favour of character and plot. I think it's problem is, is that the character designs of quite similar. So when people are getting killed off, you have to read it through again to see if it was someone you met earlier. Maybe this is more down to me being someone who's more used to defined superhero characters and looks.

Also, on a similar note, the comic has already suffered a couple of delays. We should be up to issue 4 by now, when there's still only 2 issues out as I'm writing this. Delays wont help the story, as it may lead to readers forgetting about characters. For that reason, it might be better to wait for the trade.
