The New Avengers have uncovered new information on the dangerous threat that has hung above their heads since the day they formed. But now the knowledge of this threat has begun to tear them apart. What have they discovered?
New Avengers #32 is par for the course for an early chapter of a Bendis Avengers story in that things move slowly, there's a lot of talk, and not a huge amount happens. Considering the supposedly earth-shattering implications of last issue's big reveal, it's surprising to see the writer put the brakes on so soon, and the decision to eke out the issue's story beyond its natural life feels like decompression for no good reason. In terms of the overall plot, this is the very definition of a story that will keep readers guessing - but that's not enough to make it hugely enjoyable in and of itself. Still, with Yu's admittedly uneven artwork providing a (mostly) attractive visual element, and a storyline which still has the potential to produce interesting results if the payoff lives up to the setup, I won't write off this arc of New Avengers just yet - I just hope things pick up soon.

New Avengers #32 was another boring read. If it weren't for the final two pages of this issue, this terminally slow issue would have been absolutely brutal. However, Bendis has managed to give us good endings in the past two issues, so maybe there is hope that Bendis is turning the corner and may eventually make New Avengers at least an average to slightly above average read.
