Siege collection cover

Siege TPB


Siege: The Cabal (drawn by Michael Lark) and Siege #1–4 (drawn by Olivier Coipel), written by Brian Michael Bendis Reading this collection really brought home the odd aspect of reading a lot of contributing series in trade paperback form. I read New Avengers, Dark Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man and Secret Warriors in trade form; these all come out at…

Dark Avengers: Assemble TPB


Dark Avengers #1–6 by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato I rather liked Warren Ellis’ 12-issue run on Thunderbolts, which is effectively what the Dark Avengers are: the Thunderbolts masquerading as the Avengers.

Now that I’ve read it, I realised I didn’t need to read it; the end…

Secret War cover

From A Library: Secret War


Secret War #1–5 by Brian Michael Bendis and Gabriele Dell-otto In an attempt at journalistic integrity, I should mention that the trade also collects Secret Files, not written by Bendis, but based on the Bendis-written info-pieces at the end of each individual issue. It doesn’t really count as part of the story, and is really only for the super hardcore…
