I enjoyed reading Avengers: The Intiative: Secret Invasion over on Jason Marconnet’s thread recently, and it happened to coincide with my very recent reading of X-Men: Secret Invasion for the first time. I approached the X-Men story with some trepidation as the last few I read that were published after Morrison left seemed very tired and repetitive. The franchise needs a rest. Anyway, my inner anal retentive fanboy convinced me that I can’t go on to read any Dark Reign books until I’ve read all the Secret Invasion books that I can get my hands on. (Sad I know!) Carey’s X-men story turned out to be quite good and I might get to it later I this thread.
If someone else cares to read Bendis’ boring and nonsensical sales smash hit which these were based around, then all the better! I don’t think this thread will be comprehensive.

But I’m going to start with what seems like a prequel to Secret Invasion. I know the ultimate prequel to it is Fantastic Four #2 from 1961, but I’m only going back as far as 1995’s Skrull Kill Krew.
If nothing else, I can tick off another set of Grant Morrison comics from our Morrison reading project. Join me for some Skrull-guzzling action back here shortly…
