    It might seem like I hated this, but I really didnt. Its clunky and clumsy, but it gets more right than it gets wrong, and those final few pages get it exactly right.

However, I cant deny that there are some wonderful looking pieces of art in this issue, as the moody art in the opening half of this issue does a great job of selling the downbeat nature of the material, and the second half of the issue is a delightful collection of images, as some of the best artists working today offer up their versions of classic Avenger action. From Gary Franks version of the Korvac saga, to Steve McNivens version of the Ultron Unleashed climax, the art alone was almost enough to earn this issue a recommendation. Plus, while its only six pages, George Prez closes the book with a powerful reminder of Read Full Review

    Bendis didnt earn this tribute issue, and it galls me that hes the one to write it. But, damn it, he does it well. Read Full Review

    But other than this, Avengers Finale just doesnt close this version of The Avengers in an extraordinary way. Read Full Review
