The Good

Action, explosions, and an abundance of elite superheroes, this book has everything your average comic fan looks for. Although I’m a pretty big X-Men fan, I’ve recently had a run of Wolverine comics that were just huge letdowns. Thankfully The New Avengers has put that cold streak to bed. Now, this is not an X-Men comic, it’s Avengers, but Wolverine takes the lead in this issue and displays all the attributes that make him the badass we all know and love. This book also boasts some of the best artwork I’ve seen in a while. Every panel jumps off the page in this book, and with superhero juggernauts like these guys, I’d say that needs to be the case.

The Bad

To say anything bad about this book would just be nitpicking. But for the sake of being fair, it doesn’t exactly bring anything new or unique to the Avengers universe. However, few comics do. I’m just happy it delivered the goods and kept me interested from cover to cover.

The Veredict

These days, the Avengers might be the most beloved heroes in the game. You can thank the Marvel Cinematic Universe for that. Because of those movies, the comics now have a clear advantage of drawing in new readers. With fantastic artwork and a great narrative, this comic is an absolute must-read. If you’re a fan of the movies but new to the comics, you’ll be sure to enjoy this one as well.

SCORE: 9.5
