Secret Avengers #10

"Eyes of the Dragon" concludes as the team races to save Shang-Chi before Fu Manchu can kill his son, complete his ritual, and return to the land of the living.

This one's full of action as the team attacks the Shadow Council's base and John Steele learns his invulnerability doesn't apply to weapons forged by the gods.

I was impressed how the Secret Avengers felt like a real team (with snide comments and all) this time around. Whatever the cause, the team clicked better here (at least for me) than in most of the earlier issues.

I've felt this comic has been shaky ever since it's first issue, but there are moments here when it really feels like things are beginning to come together. Of the current major Avengers titles it's been the most hit-and-miss so far. We'll have to see if the things continue to improve, but this one is worth a look.
