CBR Review: Secret Avengers #12.1

I recently reviewed Secret Avengers #12.1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "In the same week that Ed Brubaker departed Secret Avengers with issue 12, Nick Spencer comes aboard with artist Scot Eaton on this ‘point one’ issue. Brubaker’s time on the title was so centered around the Shadow Council that it was hard to picture what this group was about, besides standing against the Shadow Council. That difficulty shows as Spencer places the group in the middle of a weak ‘torn from the headlines’ sort of story that would remind many of the ‘inspired by real events’ episodes of Law & Order. The Secret Avengers don’t get much of a chance to define themselves or show what their purpose is, necessarily."
