Comic Review: Secret #1

Secret #1
Written by Jonathan Hickman
Art by Ryan Bodenheim
Image Comics
Release Date: April 11, 2012
Cover Price: #3.50

In the case of Secret #1, I clearly judged this comic by its cover. The inclusion of actual photograph on a comic book cover is not something you see often. The cover of Secret #1 grabbed my attention the first time I saw it. The ghostly white set of teeth clenched around a sea of black tendrils was haunting. Luckily for me, I do not live to regret picking up this book based on its cover. Secret #1 is a tense and masterfully crafted first issue from an extremely talented young team.

Secret #1 plays out much like the opening scenes of a James Bond movie. We are first introduced to an unlucky C.E.O who has just had some information forcefully removed in a home invasion. Immediately after that, the rest of the comic takes place in a private meeting with some of Washington’s most powerful men, who are just learning that their private security is “shit.” The man delivering this information is known as Mr. Miller, who by all accounts is a private security expert with a few darker things planned for the future.
