    It's nice to see Mike Perkins enjoy more of a spotlight. Most of the time, Perkins is recognized as the guy who draws an awful lot like Steve Epting, if he gets any recognition at all. Perkin's style fits the dark, retro feel of the series like a glove, though he occasionally struggles making more outlandish characters like Feral look convincing. I guess it should come as no surprise that House of M: Avengers hearkens back to books like Union Jack, since the Gage and Perkins also collaborated on that mini-series. I hope the quality remains consistent for the remaining 3 issues, because I'm having a grand old time reliving the House of M. Read Full Review

    This issue of House of M: Avengers is almost as good as the previous issue and continues the funky, Shaft/Marvel Universe fusion. Raul Trevino's colors are aptly washed out and reflect the grindhouse aesthetic of the seventies. Mike Perkins either inking his own pencils or relying on David Hennessy swathes the book in a realistic look filled with proportionate, powerful looking figures. Read Full Review
