THEY CAN'T EVER WIN. THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE.
THE SHIELD is the only thing that protects the more civilized areas of Battleworld from the ZOMBIE HORDES, DEATH MACHINES, AND ANNIHILATION WAVES.
Anyone who annoys Doom gets sent to The Shield. Anyone who gets sent to the Shield deals with ABIGAIL BRAND.
Miss America, Lady Katherine, Kang the Conqueror, Leah Shieldmen, the Endless Summers Company, Leonardo Da Vinci and a cast of thousands will fight to the death to keep Battleworld safe. But don't worry, Kieron Gillen is writing this book, so I'm sure everything will end happily for everyone.
'Imagine NextWave as a tragedy,' says Kieron, if anyone asks him about it. Rated T+

The only siege in this book was me getting besieged by boredom. While this wasn't the worst Secret Wars book I've read, it was far from the best. We follow Abigail Brand... talking to people at the Shield in Battleworld and telling them bad things have happened. She punches a couple people in the stomach and... that's about it. The art isn't terrible, and we're given a Stokoe spread in the middle of the book - which is nice; it was probably the highlight of the book. Additionally, the book presents a taste of things to come in the form of a cryptic message from a dying Kang, and I'm hoping that Kieron Gillen can deliver in the second book in the form of a massive battle surrounding the Wall... a Siege if you will.
I give it 5 out of 10 Grahams
