The Avengers (2011) TPB
Author: Brian Michael Bendis
Pub date: 2011
There came a day! A day unlike any other...when two of Marvel's top creators teamed up for the very first time to create a bombastic new Marvel series that not only ushers in the Heroic Age of Marvel Comics but unleashes onto the world the most blockbuster Avengers team ever! Who will answer the call? And will they assemble just in time?
Well another Avengers series reboot has come and gone but this new version by long-time Avengers mainstay, Brian Michael Bendis, keeps the ball rolling from his previous volume.
With the blocky-art return of John Romita Jr. managing to step-up a notch over the flabby A vs. X series this titular title continues the ball rolling and with the 1-st tier stars as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine and the rest come back for more face-bashing, time-spanning excitement.
The storyline is nice with the typical benis decompressed story and character chit-chat, but the JRJR art and spotty inking would have been nicer if tightened up a bit more.
3 out of 4 MONSTERS!
