    Garron delivers some great art in the issue and the rich environments and thrilling action make up for the bland elements of the plot. Read Full Review

    Impatient pacing and shallow characters make this issue of Avengers a rather unsatisfying wild west adventure. Read Full Review

    Avengers #59 takes the Avengers to the Wild West where they meet new users of the Phoenix and the Starbrand. The new characters are alright, nothing spectacular or memorable, but they're fine for this western story. However, there's no sense of danger or stakes in this comic, so it feels like it's only meant to show off the new characters instead of progressing the larger story. Read Full Review

    I am a sucker for a new Avengers story, and I must say that I do like seeing homages to older concepts such as Phoenix or Starbrand. Mephisto is a consummate villain in the Marvel universe, and any timeyou can outwit the Devil is alright with me! Perhaps it is my eye for all things comics in knowing the Old West is a hot thing now, but if everyone is on board, then check out what Jason Aaron is doing in Avengers! Itll be interesting to see if there are any time casualties along the way! Read Full Review

    I'm a sucker for Westerns, but the slapdash pastiche-work being applied to Avengers of all eras in the current scattershot arc of stories does the genre no justice here. Read Full Review
