Hercules & The God Squad Join Secret Invasion

I'm not sure what to make of the Incredible Herc.  Hercules has never really been a favorite of mine.  I do like Amadeus Cho.  The two of them are pretty much the odd couple.  That's what makes this title work to an extent.  If it was a Hercules solo, I'm not so sure I could bring myself to read it month after month.  At least since they're getting in on the Skrull Invasion storyline, things should continue to be interesting.

With Secret Invasion in full swing, Hercules’ sister Athena has banded together a sacred group of deities to face the imminent Skrull threat! Incredible Hercules #117, a tie-in to the red-hot Secret Invasion event, gives you a front row seat to a battle of divine proportions. In this issue, the critically acclaimed writing team of Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente unveil the premiere appearance of the all new GOD SQUAD, including fan-favorite Snowbird! With pencils from the rising star Rafa Sandoval and a stunning cover by John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson and Dean White, this issue is sure to make your eyes pop.

Brian Joel of IGN states that “Herc is one of the most consistently enjoyable and well-done books on the stands today.”

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Incredible Hercules and all other Secret Invasion tie-ins as they continue to sell out at Diamond and as fans continue to ask “Who do you trust?”

Can the GOD SQUAD protect the Marvel Universe from the “Sacred Invasion”? How will the master tactician, Amadeus Cho, fit into this epic equation? And is one of them a Skrull?! Find out the answers to these questions and more in the action-packed Incredible Hercules #117!
