More Secret Invasion Tie-Ins

Excitement Is Building Around All Secret Invasion Tie-Ins!

Are people still excited over this?  Let me first say that I am still enjoying the series.  I do have to say that it has so far fallen a little short of our, or at least my, expectations.  Yes we've had some reveals so far.  Nothing extremely major besides Spider-Woman and Hank Pym.  I guess those were pretty big ones.  We did have the Skrull ship full of "heroes" but so far they're being shows as simply Skrulls under their alien hypnosis.  I'm still rooting for Mockingbird to be the real Mockingbird.  Bendis did tell us some heroes would be returning from the dead.  We are half way through the series right now.  Maybe the biggest stuff is yet to come.

Here's some upcoming tie-ins to look forward to.
The blockbuster comic book event of year continues as fans, retailers and critics agree—Secret Invasion is a smash hit! Secret Invasion has everyone asking “Who do you trust?” and the fate of the Marvel Universe may be in the hands of the intergalactic threat known as the Skrulls. In order to fully understand the Skrulls’ plan and how our heroes are working to stop them at all costs, these tie-ins give you the full scope on just how serious and dangerous the Skrulls really are!  

Avengers: The Initiative #16
Avengers: The Initiative #16 introduces us to a whole new kind of threat and this one isn’t for humans! That’s right true believers, there is only one band of heroes we can trust and in this issue we get the all star return of every Skrull’s worst nightmare, the SKRULL KILL KREW. Could this be what Earth needs to push back the Skrull Invasion.

Skrull Kill Krew?  It's about time they showed up.  Where have they been since their comic was canceled waaaaay back?

Black Panther #40
Also in Black Panther #40 the scope of the invasion is realized. Can the Skrulls make their way into the impenetrable Wakanda? T’Challa’s home nation has a reputation for holding back invaders, but Earth has never seen this kind of threat before. This very well could be the death blow for Wakanda. Will their forces be able to defeat the all new breed of Super-Skrull?

Ms. Marvel #30
Carol Danvers has had a pretty tough time during the Secret Invasion and in Ms. Marvel #30 her outlook isn’t getting much better. Just when things couldn’t possibly get any worse, Ms. Marvel finds herself on Riker’s Island with a threat that’s BIGGER then the invasion itself! This does not bode well for anyone in the Marvel U. It’s time to welcome our new Skrull overlords.

Half time is over and so far the Skrulls have outmatched our heroes. With the Invasion at large, is there any hope left for Earth? Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Secret Invasion and all tie-ins, as they continue to sell out quickly at Diamond. The Skrulls are here…who do you trust?

My other question is, what do you think of the tie-in/crossover issues?  I'm liking the Fantastic Four/Secret Invasion mini-series.  New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, and Avengers: Initiative seem essential.  It's almost as if more is happening in those issues than in the actual Secret Invasion comic.
