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

"What did you do?"

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 this issue - the best thing about this issue was definitely Wolverine in the precint, it was dam funny and well executed by Deodato, great art - that been said, what the crazy and useless piece of story was that whole Fury assembling Avengers in the late 50s? That was horrible, terrible execution, the dialogues were a total ruin, some of Chaykin´s art was so bad I couldn´t even look at it, what was the purpose of all that? Kraven missing shots? Sabretooth not following orders? A shiny content in the briefcase never to be revealed? Why did this get published in the first place? "What did you do?" Marvel? I was still lingering in the hope that possibly there would be a connection with Superia, but no, not even that - a Nazi Captain America? Come on, this was a total disrespect with the readers, again the editorial hot shots at Marvel bad a real bad decision in doing this lame story. I´m torn apart about this last arc story, because at one hand I loved it for seeing Deodato again penciling Wolverine, Spider-Man and enjoyed a lot his art, and at the other hand I hated the story of Fury and his "Avengers", so I don´t recommend this!

    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....

    please let Gage or Spencer write this series 0

    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,...
