RUN THE MISSION! DON'T GET SEEN! SAVE THE WORLD!
A secret city buried one mile under American soil is discovered through the leakage of Von Doom radiation – a type of energy emitted only by time-travel devices. So the Secret Avengers head underground to a weird metropolis forgotten about for decades, because a time machine in the wrong hands is the worst kind of WMD imaginable. Master storyteller Warren Ellis begins his tenure on Earth's Mightiest Clandestine Super-Team, illustrated by Eagle Award-winning Jamie McKelvie.
Grant: I've been waiting for this comic since I heard back in April that Warren Ellis was taking over the series from issue #16. However, that being so long ago, I actually forgot that I was excited for this issue. Fortunately, I follow Warren Ellis on the Twitters and happened across one of his tweets reminding readers that this was happening. Consider yourself reminded, as well. Any book that has the man who gave the world Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. has my money. The fact that this title has Jamie McKelvie doing the drawings is an added bonus. Don't make the mistake I almost did, give this one a look.
