What did you think of Secret Invasion #1
Im not very fond of Yu art but the story was good.
It took me a while to get used to, but since I've been reading New Avengers since the beginning I've really grown to love Yu's style. I thought the story and the action was great, this is going to be what the rest of Bendis' career is measured by.
I was quite surprised to see more of Yu's "lighter" style. Back when he started on Avengers, it was darker and not detailed as it is now. Humbly surprised to see how much its changed since then. (*even certain details some artists wouldn't go as far)
Overall I really enjoyed this first installment of the nightmare finally unfolding.
I love the concept of the whole series. In issue #1, there were a couple of characters that turned-out to be Skrulls that shocked me. The artwork just stinks, but I also read the New Avengers and I guess I'm a little use to it. I just hope that this series does not fall short compared to others. Like lets just say Infinity Gauntlet that was three issues too long. Or Silent War that should have been told in just two issues. Also, let us hope that there are no delays, the delays in Civil War were just crazy! It makes the reader lose interest, or parts of the story come-out not in order. Which leave the reader confused. I have huge hopes for this epic, I just hope it pans-out.
"Y is everyone ripping Yus art. I think it great! I bet people didnt like Meleevs art work either at frist. I didnt even have to get used to it."
I agree. I've enjoyed Yu's work from the beginning. I think SI is one of his best yet. Reminds me of some of Art Adams mid '90s stuff.
Eternal Chaos says:
"Super-Buster says:"I concur, I can't stand Yu's art. The story was spectacular however."Agreed. I like different art as much as the next guy, but Yu just sucks. I feel like I'm reading a warped Manga."
I think alot of people actually like Yu's art.I wasn't too fond of it from the begginning but it's ok now.His style is unique.His faces look like silly putty sometimes but I think it's just how his style is.Other times his faces are really good.His art is off and one with me.I would rather have Yu doing the art right now then someone like Daniel Way or something like that.He is by far the worst artist Marvel has ever had.
Art is terrible, you would think with comics being artwork Marvel would sign some talented artist like Benes, Finch, Churchill, Tan, Cho, Deodato Jr., Rio, Horn, Pelletier and etc. As to the story, it is pretty much just peices stole from other people's stories. It reminds me of Revenge of the Sith and Order 66, then you have the Dire Wraith story(alien species impersonating superheroes and humans) line which Marvel ran 20+ years ago (exactly same story), and Fury's super heroe group, can you say NBC's Heroes! Orginally, I liked the idea but that was before I read the first two issues of Secret Invasion and the Avengers issues associated with them! If I just wanted to read a great story, I would read a novel, like I do! I read comics for great Artwork not chicken scratch! They can't even draw Clint Barton the way he looks, I have over 400 comics I can scan and show them his face doesn't look like that! Even though I am a big Hawkeye fan, Mockingbird has been dead for more than 2 years in Comic years for peats sake! If in the end, this is used as an end to a means to right the ship for all the wrongs commited by Marvel Administration over the past years then atleast the Comic Gods have heard our prayers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hawkeye becomes Hawkeye again! Captain America becomes Captain America again! Scarlet Witch becomes Scarlet Witch again and reverses House of M! BND Spider-man was a skull and the whole thing doesn't count! Iron Man becomes Iron Man of old again!

I had a little problem with Mockingbird's return because she was confirmed dead!!!!
I don't mean like Jean but like Gwen Stacy. Dead-Girl from X-Static had a book club where Gwen and Mockingbird were at so how is it that Mockingbird was never dead?
"yeah I understand, I knew she was dead but how did she die, I never read that comic, I think was collecting X-men at that time."
"runaways/young avengers secret invasion has terrible art"
