    This is an issue that does exactly what it needs to do, it drives the story forward while giving you an action packed good time. If you didn't read the first issue I think it would be a good time to pick both it and issue 2 up. Read Full Review

    To be honest, Im enjoying this book much more than I expected to. As a sort of side-team, as an Avengers spinoff, this rather eclectic mix of character works quite well, and I can see reading them on a regular basis. Read Full Review

    The joke here was saved by Immonen who is a first class artist who doesnt seem to get the respect he deserves. Hes a pro and he delivers no matter what comic book hes working on. Of all the new Avengers series since the heroic Age debut, this one is the least interesting and the first one Ill be dropping, even if the artwork here is incredible. Read Full Review

    So far, the core appeal of New Avengers lies with Stuart Immonen's art. Immonen's work is as gorgeous and vibrant as ever, aided as it is by Laura Martin and Matt Milla's colors. This issue crams plenty of action and bedazzling visuals, but not much story content, plot progression, or character drama. With so many quality Avengers books on the market, New Avengers doesn't offer quite enough to justify its existence yet. Read Full Review

    It's not perfection but if you kick back and sip on a brew with this issue you'll probably be happy with a massive fight that leads our heroes into a situation that does not look completely promising. I'll wait this arc out but then I'll just say Iron Fist will be getting his own ongoing/mini from Read Full Review

    In truth, there's little about this issue that Bendis' fans won't have come to expect over the last few years. While I'm confident that the issue will serve a wider story worth reading, it's hard to get too excited over this in and of itself. Better to just enjoy the jokes, take in the artwork and not worry too much about where the story is going until it actually gets there -- then go back and read it all properly. Read Full Review
