g33ky_monk3y's New Avengers #12 - Infinity, Part 4 Secrets review

please let Gage or Spencer write this series

The Avengers line has been so disappointing lately. All except Avengers Academy, which seems to exist in its only little pocket Avengers universe. If it were up to me, that book could go on forever. Gage really knows how to write a team book. Bendis on the other hand… something is lacking from his Avengers books. He used to be the guy at Marvel. If his name was on the cover, it was golden. Now though, he’s attempting a style in his writing, this half present day/half flashback with New Avengers, that fills the book up but lacks substance. After reading this issue, I felt like I was conned out of my time and money. Hardly anything really happened. Mockingbird was at the hospital… still. Hawkeye is pissed (again) and wants to go after the H.A.M.M.E.R. group that was responsible. Okay, we’ve seen that from him before. Consistent yea, but you need to develop some more or someone else. The flashback was pretty pointless, other than displaying the goofiness of Red Skull and Chaykin’s lack of artistic talent. Seriously, the Red Skull was the most feared guy back then? Okay, Fury says that was not the original Skull, but you would think a dupe would be just as fearful and intimidating. Nope, just shy of slapstick please. And on the whole Mockingbird issue, it will be pretty lame to have her die since she was just brought back and developed a good bit over in her own series. Leave it to Bendis though to nerf someone else’s plans and step on feet. I guess I’m getting on the Bendis hate wagon, but he’s not helping my decision.

    Mockingbird continues to fight for her life in an operating room while a flashback of Nick Fury's first Avengers in 1959 continues where they are in the process of hunting down the Red Skull. The Good The different art styles between Deodato and Chaykin really do a nice job of making a pointed difference between the two time periods this book takes place in, especially since this is the fourth issue in a row where they’ve been going back and forth with these flashbacks to Fury’s 1959 Avengers....

    For once I´m enjoying the New Avengers title, I believe that with this new arc story Bendis found a good angle to explore and the fact that he´s working again with Mike Deodato Jr. is positive, because it appears that the chemistry between these two is paying off, I really enjoyed the dynamics of the New Avengers´story, the anger that Clint is feeling, the whole good cop, bad cop thing going on in the police station and especially the shocking (yet allready foreseen) revelation in the end of thi...
