    This series is interesting, bringing Hawkeye back to his old-school characterization, and revamping Mockingbird for the new world with some excellent art. Read Full Review

    Keith Dallas: So, from what I'm gathering by our exchange here, you and I are both finding New Avengers: The Reunion well worth our time and money. Aside from its overwrought romantic elements, the story has been engagingly suspenseful in the James Bond sense of that word. Speaking for myself, I'm hoping Marvel's Powers That Be are inclined to give Jim McCann more writing assignments because he's certainly proven himself a capable storyteller. Read Full Review

    Regardless of my thoughts on the exact plot points in this particular issue, I really like this series as a whole. Even though it's covering serious topics, it has enough lightheartedness to keep the "dramatic" from becoming "melodramatic". I really want to see more of Jim McCann going forward. While not all the way there yet, you can already see that he has the potential to do some really good work going forward. Read Full Review

    While arguably just as good as the last issue with answering questions about Mockingbird and her time with the Skrulls, as well as with the interaction between her and Hawkeye, there comes a time in a four issue miniseries where we need some plot progression and waiting for the last issue to really introduce and conclude that aspect of the story can backfire. Without having read the last issue, I have a sinking feeling this series might have actually benefitted from being a five or six issue miniseries instead, but I'll reserve full judgement until next month.
