This is a piece I felt I had to write. I’ve been open about my disdain for Marvel’s seemingly endless stream of major event crossovers. I love their comics, their characters, and their creative talent…but I avoid these cash-grab events like a plague, often dropping heavy tie-in titles from my pull list. Yet a few weeks back I wrote of my struggle with “Secret Empire.” While I don’t like these events, I have great respect for/trust in Nick Spencer as an author so I wanted to give this one a shot. Today, four issues in (counting the Free Comic Book Day offering), I have to say the series is worth every penny! While Secret Empire is obviously Marvel’s big summer event it’s also a story with a point, purpose, and message and that makes all the difference in the world.
