Never even read the first issue. Was this series any good?

I didn't really care for it, but there are some here who actually did like it. You should be able to pick up the entire series for cheap, so you're not out much if don't care for it either.

I liked the armored team quite a bit. Certainly more than the "Secret Defenders" like initial concept. Although the Bloodshot-focused issues were pretty good.

Not the best series by any means, but the later armored team as mentioned was pretty cool :)

I'm in the minority, as I had more fun with the original concept then the later one, which I found a shadow of Armorines, which was never my fave series to begin with.

I didn't like Armorines much (mainly due to its association with X-O), but really dug SW. To me, it was Armorines done right.

I like Secret Weapons if only because it was one of the Valiant titles MAC did pencils for. I have a page which would be considered a "common" page, but I like it just fine. :thumb:

I think SW was a horrible idea that was just the new direction Valiant trying to produce as many Number 1 issues as they could in a short time. The seires was so bad, it had to be re-invented almost immediately!
