    This is just about everything that was fun or good about Bendis' Avengers. Of course, that also makes it very “Bendis”, so if you hate that…well, why the hell are reading issue #31 anyway? Read Full Review

    Much like Avengers #31, this is very strong start to Bendis' last story on the title. Read Full Review

    Unrest fills Avengers Mansion as news of Luke Cage quitting the team to spend more time with his family reaches the rest of the crew. Iron Fist takes the news the hardest, which leads to a thoughtful conversation with Doctor Strange that Bendis sneaks a moment of humor into. It was also fun to hear Carol talk to Jessica about her new Captain Marvel persona. Bendis hits his stride here with an excellently paced issue balanced by the right amount of humor and tension. Hopefully he carries this quality on to the end. Read Full Review

The rest could have been better, but it was enough to make me want to see what happens next issue. I know it's building to something, and I'm hoping it's something I'll like. Read Full Review

    I wasn’t as big a fan of Michael Gaydos’s art. His lines are weak and they push across the line between a loose and flowing fine art look and that of just being sloppy. Gaydos’s faces seem to be one step away from melting and his overreliance on shadow just kills any depth to the work. He also has trouble not making female faces look incredibly masculine. Shaky artwork aside, New Avengers #31 is a well-crafted kick off to what seems like a good story. Read Full Review
