    It's probably no surprise to many that Thanos has shown up. It's probably a foregone conclusion that the battle will only intensify going into the next issue. Either way, this arc is really hitting the right notes for me. I'm really looking forward to seeing the final battle! Read Full Review

    I'm glad to see this story that I had almost given up on suddenly righting itself and upping the ante. I have to admit it - I'm impressed! Read Full Review

    Theres so much to like about Avengers #11 that I just recommend jumping in now before you miss the juicy parts. It has great art, novel twists on old concepts, fantastic characters both new and old and two of best comic book creators the world has to offer. To me, this is what traditional superhero comics are all about. Read Full Review

    Bendis does something different, and it ultimately pays off in a big way. Read Full Review

    Oh, and the surprise guest who makes his appearance on the final panel? Yeah, that's pretty damn cool, too. Must-read. Read Full Review

    At least the art is much improved from issue #10. There, John Romita Jr.'s pencils were messy, with inker Klaus Janson seemingly taking on a larger share of the workload. Gone are the washed out, flat figures and overly heavy inking, to be replaced by smoother lines and finer details. Even Dean White's colors see improvement, appearing richer and with more depth than before. It's a shame both halves of the equation can't seem to line up in this arc. Read Full Review

    With all but two pages being splashes, this comic feels like it ends before it's even getting started; in general this story has felt slightly rushed, but this issue even more than before. And as for the surprise final page? Well, let's hope that it's at least in part a trick; I'd hate to see the most recent storyline involving that character to be undone so casually. After a strong opening, the current "Avengers" storyline has been running out of steam, and this issue is no exception. I want to like this story, but each new chapter is a little less than the one before. Read Full Review

    Weird... Just weird... I don't even know what else to say about this comic. It was apparently a part of some sort of initiative between Mayor Bloomberg and Marvel to help residents of New York City learn about Workforce1, some free career counseling service. Now that's all fine and good for people living in one of the five boroughs, but I moved out of NYC 4 years ago! So yeah, this comic was, as I believe I mentioned, weird. So if you're an out of work resident of the Big Apple, google Workforce1. If you're like me and you no longer(or never did) live in NYC, well then you're plumb out of luck! Read Full Review
