127:110 Marvel Secret War by Brian Michael Bendis

Graphic Novel set in the Marvel universe.  There is an increase in the number of tech villians doing petty jobs and it has attracted the attention of SHIELD and specifically Nick Fury.  Tracking back has led to the discovery that the new head of Latveria is behind these attacks but when Fury takes this information to the president, he refuses to act so Fury decides to take matters into his own hands.  He puts together a small squah of superheros and deals with it and then wipes their memories.  A year later tho, those heros are being attacked and they don't know why.

Interesting getting into some of the politics of the Marvel universe especially as we see Fury step away from SHIELD at the end of the book.  Apparently this is setting things up for Avengers Disassembled which is the prelude to the Civil War.  Looks to be good!

Page count: 256p/40,629p ytd

And with that, I have completed my 40 new authors for the year which was my last uncompleted challenge.  I'll be doing a wrap up post tomorrow as well as a "What I'm looking forward to" post talking about new releases coming up that interest me.
