Issue #12.1 of Secret Avengers with Nick Spencer writing.   The Story: A guy pretending being U.S.Agent cause's "Wikileaks" and reveals all of the Secret Avengers informants and they have to save an A.I.M member.   The Good: I am suprised by Nick Spencer,he has an excellent grasp on all the characters and each have a good scene.The banter between Eric and Jim was extremely good and I am happy they are the comedie duo of this series.Valkyrie still proves she is a badass by killing a bunch of A.I....

Someones leaked the name of every confidential informant the government has in every criminal Organization in the Marvel U  The Good Scott Eaton turns in some really solid artwork here and I can definitely see it growing on me in the future.
