Secret Invasion #6
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Penciler: Leinil Yu; Inker: Mark Morales
Imagine, if you will, Secret Invasion as a four-issue summer crossover.
That would have rocked.
But instead, we are left with this bloated and padded eight-issue monstrosity that never seems hit its stride.
Last issue held such promise, promise that this issue fails to deliver upon.
We are left waiting, yet again, for the big battle.
Perhaps Marvel and Brian Bendis should take a look at James Cameron and the marvelous scenes he cut from Terminator 2 and Aliens for the sake of pacing.
Because I’ve reached a point where I just don’t care about this story anymore.
As for Wolverine, he utters only two sentences and serves as background for most of the issue.

From Marvel: “EMBRACE CHANGE! With these words, the Skrulls have made their intentions clear but not everyone thinks they sound all that bad. Which heroes and icons are hell-bent on defending the Earth from the invasion, and who thinks a new era has dawned for mankind? The final double-page spread of this issue will send chills down your spine, and that is a promise!!” On sale September 10, 2008.
