    If anyone else had drawn this issue, and done a decent job, I might have graded this issue . But Chaykins one of the best; Hes set a high standard for his work. And hes too good to make simple mistakes like cluttered panels and cockeyed characters. Nevertheless, this is a vital issue in the Civil War crossover. It gives a disturbing but necessary insight into the mind of comics greatest patriot forced to fight the country he loves. Read Full Review

    I found New Avengers #21 to be flat and rather uninspiring. Nothing new happened in this issue. It wasn't particularly interesting. I didn't find the dialogue to be enthralling. Bendis continues to un-impress me on the Avengers. Hopefully, the next issue will be more exciting. I still can't recommend the New Avengers to anyone. Read Full Review

    If all four parts of this arc are as self-contained as this, then were in for a less coherent disassembling (disassemblage?) of the team than Id hoped for. However, the concentration on a single character gives Bendis the chance to flex his characterisation muscles a lot more effectively, and as such, these issues might be some of the most significant yet for that exact reason. Non-Civil War followers will be likely to be left cold by the storyline, which assumes a lot of prior knowledge on the part of the reader, but such complaints will surely only affect a minority of the titles readership. Like Civil War: Front Line, this is another solid satellite title to the core Civil War book. Just dont expect a fantastic story in its own right. Read Full Review
