RONIN PART 1 Who is Ronin and why has Captain America recruited him into the fold? Does it perhaps have something to do with Hydra helping the Silver Samurai get out of the country after he broke out of prison?

    Im one of those comic book readers who can forgive certain story flaws if Im really taken by the artwork. And Im very really taken by what Finch provides here Read Full Review

    You could be forgiven for turning away from this title after the last few issues, but youd be a fool to tar the Ronin arc with the same brush as the Sentry storyline without at least reading it first. To some extent, Bendis feels like hes cut loose from the storytelling shackles of previous arcs, employing the skills of returning penciller Finch to an excellent storytelling end and doing what he does best: playing with established Marvel characters in a new and exciting way. However, I will end this review with the proviso that I was equally excited with the opening issue of Sentry, and that arc eventually descended into a cacophony of ill-conceived ideas, overbearing guest stars and fudged continuity. I only hope that Bendis maintains the streamlined slickness that hes exhibited this issue and doesnt try to over-complicate the introduction of what looks to be one of the most interesting New Avengers in storytelling terms. But I wouldnt count on it. Read Full Review

    So, for decent artwork and a cadre of popular heroes. The story is dodgy and boring as a date with my missus. There is far too much talking and too little action, and Im not desperate to buy the next issue. I probably will but my patience is fast running out. Read Full Review
