    For some reason I always get worried when Bendis writes a magic-based story, but so far, this one has been all kinds of fun. Read Full Review

    This issue has really turned me around with regards to the enjoyment level this book gives me, and I can't wait to read the next issue and see what Bendis has planned next, based on his great cliffhanger here. Read Full Review

    It's a fast-moving, great-looking superhero comic, and it's a fitting flag-bearer for the entire Marvel Universe during this "Heroic Age," when everything may not be ice cream and rainbows, but it's not all skulking in shadows and misery, either. Read Full Review

    New Avengers has definitely improved since its relaunch after Siege. It is no longer the stagnant series it had become and even though it still has mostly the same cast, everything just feels more consistent and refined than before and this makes it a much better series. It still has some kinks to work out, but I think Bendis is really managing to hit his stride with New Avengers once again. Read Full Review

    One thing I've always enjoyed about Bendis' writing is his knack for putting superheroes in real-feeling scenarios you rarely get in titles like this. It can be something of a double-edged sword though, because sometimes you get heroes talking like a bunch of buddies watching TV on the couch when they're supposed to be in the middle of an Earth-threatening crisis,and it honestly gets distracting. But the art's stellar, the plot's surprising and the back-up feature's a stand-out. Read Full Review
