Secret Avengers - Issue 1

What a team! Coulson and Fury. Jessica and Natasha. Hill and MODOK? And the one who isn't supposed to be a part of the team -- Cliff Barton.

It ends with a bullet hole through Director Hill's hand. Mid-story, Natasha, Jessica, and Cliff fight AIM agents in bath towels and, well, nude (that Cliff!). It all starts with Fury and Coulson in space.

You'll have to read it to find out how it all connects, but one thing is certain: Secret Avengers is frenetic and hilarious comic book fun.

The art is expressive and playful. It really moves and is well complemented by colors beyond the primaries. The color combinations create some interesting contrasts. The lettering impresses, and if it can be said, it's also expressive and playful, yet without causing distraction. What a team.
