Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Avengers #8 written by Jason Aaron and art by David Marquez.
Another Avengers comic came out while I was away?!
Sorry, but I really wanted to completely ignore this book. It took all of my strength just to flip it open. I was slightly surprised because I enjoyed this issue more than the previous issues. Although it isn’t much more than the team training and talking together, it is a good book. I enjoyed the interactions between Captain America and Ghost Rider. I enjoyed the interactions between Captain Marvel and Iron Man, you know because she killed him basically. I also really enjoyed She-Hulk and Thor’s weird relationship that Jason Aaron is building. I think it is really funny and fits well.
As for their new base of operations. It is trash. They used one of the celestial’s husks as a monument to commemorate how he ended up creating the human race. Oh, and did I mention that it is located in the Arctic. Why would you put the superheroes, who have to save lives quickly, so far away from any form of civilization? It’s ridiculous! The best part about this issue is that Black Panther becomes chairman of the Avengers. That’s the only important thing that we get from this issue!
Overall, it was better than the other Avengers issues, but it could be so much more. I mean, just take a look at Scott Snyder’s Justice League if you want an example of a perfect group book!
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 11.5 / 20
