With the life-expectancy of hamsters, and an ever-thinning lineup, the GLA is in desperate need of new blood. Oh, and don't forget, in this issue Another GLAer Dies!

    Paul Pelletier continues to deliver some of his best work to date on this miniseries. There's a number of lovely touches in this issue, from the amusing presentation of the visual gags to the highly expressive faces of the cast. I mean the humour of the scene where Flatman pesters the new Swordsman is aided tremendously by the art. I loved Flatman's face after an infuriated Swordsman comes right out and states why the Great Lakes Avengers wouldn't want him on their team. I also loved the pages where the various characters of the Marvel Univere react to the offer to join the GLA, with my personal favourite being Hercules' jovial expression. The action that plays out in the latter half of the issue was also well done, as the big death scene is actually quite gruesome, that one is almost hesitant to enjoy the attempt at humour that immediately follows. The dramatic impact of the final page was also well presented, as the art nicely captures the sense of urgency in Flatman's struggle Read Full Review

    Less interesting: No, its all good. The less we see of DUrge the better, and it turns out Slotts ideas work even better without Mr. Immortals blinding optimism to mask the obvious: this team is doomed. Maelstroms two-page rant is old school fun, and if Ive learned nothing else this issue, I know this much: I need my monthly Monkey Joe fix! Read Full Review
