AVENGERS has had a lot of 'big' cosmic action lately but Jonathan Hickman is continuing to mix things up. With Mike Deodato on board handling the art, we're going to see the team head to another area we haven't really seen them before - Hong Kong.

Check out the first look Marvel has released for AVENGERS #11 on sale next month.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Avengers #11 from the blockbuster creative team of writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Mike Deodato! All bets are off as the Avengers head to Hong Kong to uncover a deadly threat in one of its finest casinos. While Cannonball and Sunspot win big at the craps table, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, and Spider-Woman discover the dangers of being made while spying in a casino! And with Shang-Chi tackling an ancient foe in an epic showdown – no fan can miss this action packed issue!

The Avengers in civvies at a casino in HK? Sounds like it'd be an interesting read, at least.

Also, FIRST!

Looks good! Loving the book at the minute one of my favourite ongoings hope this continues to be good but I bet it will Mike Deodato's always good :D Looking forward to the Shang-Chi spotlight should be good.

Also Dustin Weaver has produced some fantastic covers I'll miss him on the series :( But LENIL YU! is going to be drawing it!

I'm a big Deodato fan -- I wonder how long he's hanging around for? Judging by how many artists the title's had already, likely not long. This seems to be Marvel's strategy for many of their Now books, a visual jarring strategy I'm not crazy about.

I like Deodato art but he really needs to get Carol's hair down part I mean she lost the little faux hawk and has never had it other then on the covers of her own series.

@mucklefluga: Do you read Avengers Assemble? Since I started reading with #9, Spider-Woman's been quite important throughout, the last 2 issues were based around Black Widow, and #16-17 are part of a Captain Marvel crossover, and Black Widow and Spider-Woman seem to be involved.

I just realised you'll already know all of that if you do read it. What I'm basically trying to say is that it Assemble seems to be the best place to read Spider-Woman at the moment, I've seen more Black Widow focus in it than in Avengers, and outside of her own title, it seems to be the best place to read Captain Marvel.

Thought I should mention it. :)

@mucklefluga: No problem. The story is good, the current artist has had mixed reviews, but it looks like the new artist from #13 onwards is pretty good.

looks amazing, this definatly the best MarvelNow title! without the Best Avengers book on sale.

Its shame is lagging behind in the sales. Uncanny Avengers has been so bland and delayed but is selling more.

Good grief!! That cover! Spider-Woman's costume is kinda 'Sailor Moon' esqe, and Carol has some sort of samurai outfit... this is too close to stereotyping.

So far I have been bored to tears with Avengers due to the cosmic stuff, which I'm not a fan of, the last couple issues have been improvements, so I'm interested in this new direction.

While I like the idea of the cover a lot, it says Japan to me much more so than Hong Kong. Maybe it's just me.

Anyway, the interiors look stunning.

No you're dead on. Those are more stereotypical Japanese apparel. Spider-woman's Seifuku, Captain Marvel's Samurai-esque armor and katana, Sunspot's got this ninja thing going on, Cannonball (I think?) has a Metal hero look and Black widow is all mecha/cyberpunk'd out. Only Shang-Chi seems to know what's up with his Bruce Lee look.

Awesome cover and interior art.

But if there's "fun and games" in this issue it'll be a first for Hickman's Avengers (dull).
