    Greg Land is a big part of why the battles in this book were so good. When Namor attacks Luke Cage underwater, the resulting explosion of water is incredible. You can feel the immense power of the hit. Same goes for poor Sunspot, who gets clocked so hard he flies over the other panels on the page. Even with all the action going on, he knows how to slow down just in time to deliver some unbelievably hilarious reaction shots. His art combines with Gillen's consistently entertaining writing to produce one of the better AvX tie-ins out there. Read Full Review

    Gillen seems to be playing it safe so far with the Avengers Vs. X-Men tie-in for Uncanny X-Men. We don't get anything too different than we'd expect, but there is promise for something more in latter issues. I know that later in the tie-in, the focus will shift to Mister Sinister and his plans, but for now, we have an enjoyable, and hilarious, punch-up issue, and there are much worse ways that this could have gone.

    Namors sexual prowess is hilarious and watching The Thing beat the tar out of giant monsters is reminiscent of old school Fantastic Four battles. Great stuff. Written by Kieron Gillen & illustrated by Greg Land. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    I know it's work for hire and you can only care so much about stuff you don't own the rights to, but one hopes that Kieron Gillen's editors send him a gift basket every time Greg Land draws one of his comics. Read Full Review
