The end is near for Secret Wars. After last weeks releases there are only 4 issues left in the event (I think), two of which are the conclusion to the main series. After the break I’ll have a look at Secret Wars #7 and two other series that wrapped up: Thors (I’ll look at Thors #3 and Thors #4) andSquadron Sinister with issue #4.
Concluding my recount of the events from Jonathan Hickman’s epic story from his Avengers/New Avengers runs that lead directly into the new Secret Wars if so at least Jimmy Impossible knows what’s going on.
As always, potentially massive SPOILERS after the cut.
This week’s recap of Jonathan Hickman’s dual Avengers runs leading up to the new Secret Wars will cover the Infinity crossover, which brought Thanos into the story in a way that his creator Jim Starlin has probably already retconned as out-of-character behavior, possible the work of a clone. Because that’s what he does any time anyone other than he uses Thanos in a story.
This entry will probably be one of the longest and densest since it covers the Infinity storyline. You’ve been warned. As always, SPOILERS behind the cut.
