    Its okay. It wouldnt be if it werent getting on with the Spider-Woman subplot, but theres finally movement on that front, too. Heres a glass raised to achieving something better than middling next issue. Read Full Review

    All in all, its not the worst issue of New Avengers, and its certainly better than the last effort but thats damning with faint praise. Now that the Spider-Woman story has kicked into gear Ill be interested to see where it goes, but the constant anticlimactic nature of the book doesnt have me very hopeful for the next couple of issues. I think the truth of the matter is that Bendis just cant write a good super-hero romp on a grand scale, and is wasted on an epic team book like New Avengers. It seems crazy to me that Marvel is letting him quit books which are so much more suited to his talents (Daredevil, The Pulse) and letting him pick and choose his projects, when they turn out average books like this.

    Hmmn. It appears my attempt to avoid unamusing sanctimonious snarkiness failed, but you really only have yourselves to blame I told you to skip to Kelvin Greens review. Read Full Review

    Im truly baffled by the positive critical reception that greets this comic every month; the art is terrible, and the writing is just empty fluff, all style over substance. The sooner Marvel wise up and let Robert Kirkman have a crack at this book, the better. As for now, I cant even wipe my arse with this; the papers too shiny. Read Full Review
