“So what does Jonathan Hickman give us? A new superhero comic that’s half Robert Ludlum and half Jack Kirby, and something that feels like a logical escalation of the very popular work Millar and Hitch did.

There are numerous characters in this book that Hickman’s written, sometimes quite extensively, in the regular Marvel Universe, but his Nick Fury here seems completely different from the one we’ve seen in Secret Warriors, and another character is a very deliberate, dark inversion of the one Hickman writes on a regular basis.”

They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
