    The second is a joke I wont spoil. Well, unless you read my Pulse review, which is rarely in synch this month with Bendiss best-selling book. Read Full Review

    Im sticking with the New Avengers because it is a solid comic. However, it doesnt blow me away and I dont think that Bendis is suited for this title. The New Avengers feels a bit generic, but the writing is not bad and the art rocks. Read Full Review

Over the course of this series, weve seen Bendis draw on numerous plot elements from his other Marvel books - including Daredevil, Alias, The Pulse, Secret War, Spider-Woman and House of M - to create his stories, and although some of this has been done fairly organically (I thought Nick Furys appearance last issue was a fairly logical development which holds a lot of promise for future storylines) theres also a sense that hes using his past work as a crutch in lieu of pushing forward with new ideas. Instead of creating the feeling of a rich tapestry of continuity between titles in the Marvel Universe, its actually having the opposite effect, restricting the stories to Bendiss own well-worn corner of the Marvel Universe in Read Full Review

    I find myself almost enjoying this issue, but I suspect that its really more to do with the brief cameo by a favourite character than any true increase in quality; the many disappointing writing tics Bendis has introduced to this title are all still present and correct, and while a strong showing with one particular character helps to distract from these problems, it cannot solve them.
