Secret Avengers #8 (Marvel)


Rating: 3.5/5 – The everyday life of A.I.M. revealed.

I’m happy to see slower paced issues like this every now & again in comics, they remind us that character backstory is something worth knowing about and a story can be told that’s not just people hitting one another.  It’s nice to get them on occasion and not as a steady diet.

In this issue Nick Spencer focuses on Mockingbird on an infiltration mission to A.I.M. island.  We get to see a lot of the inner workings of A.I.M. that are generally not shown, but they’re generally not shown because they’re kind of boring.  I’d call what we get in this issue interesting but not exciting.  It’s certainly not a bad issue and there are some truly revelatory moments as we meet some of the “higher ups” in the A.I.M. power structure.  The tower occupied by Jude the Entropic Man was really a WTF!?! moment for me and made the issue worth reading all by itself.
