  • The only problem is Osborn and his Dark Reign over the Marvel Universe can’t compare to taking down a kingdom full of Gods and most importantly Thor
  • Loki on the other hand just sort of happened and I think it was supposed to be a tear jerking moment
  • At least Olivier Coipel saves the day with the artwork in Siege #1 - 4, the best part to the whole hardback experience

      After the Secret Invasion Brian Michael Bendis set up what was to be the next big Marvel even, Siege. The Siege storyline lasted for four issues and branched off into almost every other Marvel ongoing series. What bothers me the most is the main story was four issues and the Secret Invasion was eight issues. How good can an even be when it is only half the issues of the last one?

      Siege, in a nutshell, is Norman Osborn going crazy and wanting to get rid of Asgard from Earth. The only problem is Osborn and his Dark Reign over the Marvel Universe can’t compare to taking down a kingdom full of Gods and most importantly Thor. Osborn gets the help from


      Loki and goes behind the President to attack the powerful kingdom of Asgard. Before you know it, and without me saying anymore, the event is over.

      All the Siege does is offer two big shockers. If it wasn’t for these two shockers then the Siege would be the worst storyline ever, but I am getting ahead of myself since one of the shockers might go back to what I just said. Let’s just get down to business and start with the first of two shockers that Siege has to offer to Marvel fans.

      The first shocker is how bad it is. Really, four issues long? If they were four good issues then it would be alright. All Siege does is rob you of

      your money while you still think Bendis is genius. Secret Invasion had a huge build up and it delivered. Siege had the Dark Reign, which was Norman Osborn and his Dark Avengers causing havoc but at the same time looking like they are heroes. This was the worst thing Brian Michael Bendis has written, it’s all just crammed into one event that seems like it was written on a dirty restaurant napkin.

      Our second shocker has to be the two deaths in this event, if you can even call it that. If you don’t want to know who dies then go to the final verdict portion of the review. Both Ares and Loki die during the Siege and to tell the truth ...

      I don’t know if it mattered too much. Ares seemed to die just for shock effect and for some good pencils. Loki on the other hand just sort of happened and I think it was supposed to be a tear jerking moment. Turns out it didn’t matter, who would have thought?

      The Siege hardback is broken up into three parts, the Prologue, Siege #1 - 4, and The Way Things Are. The Prologue features art from Lucio Parrillo, an artist I never really cared for. His art is just weak looking to me and for the Siege it just doesn’t work out too well. Siege #1 - 4 has better art from Olivier Coipel. If it wasn’t for Coipel Siege would have

      been a total disaster. And finally the Free Comic Book Day short, The Way Things Are, has art from Jim Cheung. It’s a little weak on the details and some of the character models, especially Thor, look real strange.

      Final Verdict :

      For the follow-up to the Secret Invasion, Siege is a total letdown. Brian Michael Bendis said he had all of this planned all the way back to House of M. So you’re telling me Bendis knew Siege would be this bad from the start? The man had time to tweak his ideas but for some reason this is what we got. At least Olivier Coipel saves the day with the artwork in Siege #1 - 4, the best part to the whole hardback experience.
