    Next issue is the big wrap-up to this story, so we'll see if writer Brian Bendis can "stick the landing" (as they kept saying in the Olympics). Read Full Review

    I want to extend my condolences to the Blick family. It was a very heartfelt and personal story to share with everyone. I have to admit, it made me tear up. I wish all the best to the family in this difficult time. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Sam Sep 13, 2012

    While there are many reasons I love this book, the few issues I have with it so far are more nitpicks than anything else. One of the major questions that still hasn't been really dignified with a straight answer is how these stories affect the 616 continuity. While they are canon it seems to ignore past stories like “The Thanos Imperative” which is more then a little confusing for some of us Marvel U buffs. But none of the things that confuse me are going to stop me reading this enjoyable romp through the Marvel U, at least not yet. Read Full Review

    No complaints here.  The best thing about the Avengers fighting in space for most of this issue is that Bendis couldn't go dialogue crazy due to nobody being able to hear anything in space.  Besides that, the story was strong and simple, the Badoon teamed with Thanos and are therefore bad.  The Avengers and Guardians fought the Badoon.  They destroyed a Badoon ship, something which could lead to repercussions down the road.  Plus you had Thanos taunting and supposedly killing the Elders, although that action seems to have been what trapped Thanos in the state he was in at the end of this issue.  Honestly, I'm looking forward to the next issue which wraps up this storyline.  I'll be curious to see hos Bendis wraps it all up.

    In a way, this book is a definite trade off. Is it worth the $4 a month to see a little more comic booky style of Avengers story where they go out into space and fight aliens or just loading up the pages with more action than story? For me, it kind of is worth it because these are the types of stories I grew up with. Perhaps that's why I can say I like these issues. I find some connection to that 10 year kid inside that read these types of stories and that helps me forget about the flaws and just enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    The use of the Badoon is a nice touch (given their importance to the original Guardians of the Galaxy) and although Thanos omnipotence and brashness to the Elders of the Universe is nothing new, it's presented well. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 12, 2012

    Bendis would have a potentially much more interesting and enjoyable story on his hands if he were just writing a Guardians of the Galaxy comic. And perhaps one day he will be, and the Avengers will just have been a necessary evil in order to help provide causal readers a stepping stone into the Marvel cosmos. That still doesn't excuse this series for its storytelling shortcomings. Read Full Review

    While I've been enjoying this series for the most part, this issue was pretty much filler to get the Guardians and the Avengers to the point where they would finally face the Mad Titan and his man-made Cosmic Cube. Hopefully some good things come out of that battle and the issues to come. Read Full Review
