•  Turns out not EVERYONE is happy the good guys have gotten the band back together again in the form of an all-new West Coast Avengers. Some villains were actually pretty pleased with the status quo, and they've got creative ideas about an UN-welcoming party to rectify the situation.
•  Double Hawkeyes, America Chavez, Quentin Quire, Gwenpool and Fuse find themselves caught in a not-so-amusing amusement park, where the other attendees are, well, mostly villains looking to take them out. Super fun!

    WEST COAST AVENGERS doesn't do too much to move the story forward or build the characters, but what it gives us is nothing to pass up. It's sufficient and entertaining enough that this can still be called a very good issue. Read Full Review

    More laid back and less action-filled than earlier issues, Thompson's strength still lies in her tight characterization and dialogue. Read Full Review

    I really in love with this team. It's fun, smart and enjoyable. The interaction between characters are really good, even if Gwen & quentin start to annoy me with their "love/hate" relation.

    Cover - I love it and this is in link. 2/2
    Writing - It was very well written. 3/3
    Arts - The art are as fun & the layout is good. 3/3
    Feeling - My favorite avengers ongoing. 2/2

    Really great issue. There's a good explanation for Gwenpool's powers and her romance with Quentin. The team dynamics are on-point. They feel like they're a team instead of a bunch of characters that were crammed together onto a team. This issue also picks up some plot points from Hawkeye, which is a bonus for people who read that.
