CBR Review: Secret Avengers #5

I recently reviewed Secret Avengers #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Since the final page of the first issue of Secret Avengers, the question of Nick Fury working for the mysterious Shadow Council has hung over the book. Is it really Nick Fury? If it is, how is that possible? What’s he doing? If not, again, how is that possible? This epilogue to the book’s first story arc answers the question of who this Nick Fury is and how he came to work for the Shadow Council, but doesn’t give much information on the group itself. The biggest problem this issue faces is that with an incredibly talented creative team, the writing doesn’t elevate the tale beyond a basic explanation of what’s going on, while the art is remarkably uninspired. For a comic featuring the names Brubaker, Aja, Lark, and Villarrubia on the cover, it’s a disappointment."
