And as we get near the bottom of the new comic book pile, it's time to take a look at this week's Runt of the Litter, or the comic I least wanted to read, for this week, Secret Avengers. Warren Ellis' brief run on Secret Avengers has had it's ups and downs, okay, that's not really true, it was basically one up followed by a few downs... Let's hope that this issue breaks the downward trend.
Secret Avengers #19:
Summary: Steve Rogers, Black Widow, Sharon Carter and Moon Knight enter a club in the country of Symkaria intent on stopping the club's owner from selling some sort of mystical weed that gives it's users super-soldier-like abilities. After failing to do things the quiet way, the quartet are forced to fight their way through several possessed beings before reaching the penthouse. Upon entering, the club's boss reveals that he'd been smoking the magic drug for a long time and as such was WAY more powerful than his underlings. Not wanting to face a foe like that head on, the Secret Avengers douse him with booze, set him on fire, and kick him out the window to his death, ending his threat and this issue.
Thoughts: Honestly? No problems here. The story was REALLY fast paced(as you can probably tell from the summary I typed up), and while a bit strange(drugs made from the bones of old gods, or something like that...), I found the story easy to get into, unlike the past few issues. So yeah, this one was definitely a pleasant surprise.
Score: 7 out of 10.And THAT'S how you deal with drug/demon possessed goons.
