Newsarama points to Entertainment Weekly’s coverage of Marvel’s latest event, “Secret Invasion,” set to go on sale April 2.  EW has the first 10 pages online, and an interview with writer Brian Michael Bendis.  From EW:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s say you’re a fan of the Marvel universe, but you’re not an expert. Why should you read Secret Invasion?
BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS:
The Skrulls were invented back in the day when Invasion of the Body Snatchers and the Cold War were a big part of the [Marvel] universe. And we’re kind of back in that: The subtext of this story is not knowing if you can trust your friends or family. Years after 9/11, we go on a plane and start scanning the crowd…we can’t help it. Plus, it’s every character in the Marvel universe interacting with each other in a completely unique way. It’s the biggest disaster movie the Marvel universe, we’re hoping, would ever see.
