This week Marvel has decided to put out a special five dollar .1 issue of the Avengers. Is this a necessary part of Hickman’s great epic? No. Is it worth the five bucks? Most likely not. Is it a good read, though? Actually, it is a really good read, but only if you like introspective thought and character development more than action. Continue reading Review: Avengers 34.1

Taylor: Thor & Loki: The Tenth Realm #1 (or Original Sins 5.1 or whatever)
As an unabashed fan of Thor, I’ve got a keen interest in this story, which aims to introduce a fairly major change to the status quo. Introducing Angela as Thor’s sister could be either a great or a terrible idea, and this initial story will go a long way in determining which. In any event, I have a great deal of trust in Jason Aaron, and Al Ewing has been solid on the Loki book, so it’ll be interesting to see how this collaboration works out.
THOR & LOKI: THE TENTH REALM #1 (of 5)
Writers: Jason Aaron/Al Ewing
Artist: Simone Bianchi
• Thanks to the events of ORIGINAL SIN, the deepest secret of the Nine Realms is revealed… a Tenth Realm!
• Thor and Loki embark on a quest to discover this strange new world — and the sister Thor never knew he had… Angela!
• But can Loki be trusted? And will brother and sister murder each other before the truth comes out?
Christian: Detective Comics #33
With Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato on this title I knew the art was going to be amazing, but it’s truly surprising that the Icarus story-arc in the current run of Detective Comics is just a wonderful Batman story. With all the Bat-family showing up in Batman Eternal, and Batman proper being a tale of old, I’m really happy that there’s still a Batman book that just stars Batman in a fun adventure.
DETECTIVE COMICS #33

In “Icarus” part four, Batman must contend with a gang war between The Squid and the Kings of the Sun before it consumes all of Gotham City! But can even the World’s Greatest Detective defuse a blood feud that’s about to go nuclear?
Gaumer: All-New X-Men #29
It’s a light week for me, but there are still plenty of gems in my stack. Despite great potential in Original Sin #5.1 and amazing art in Detective Comics #33, I’m most looking forward to the siege of the New Xavier School continue in All-New X-Men. Bendis is teetering on the brink of a cliff of time-traveling tropes, and whether he makes it across or falls off the edge, it’s going to be interesting.

Mighty Avengers #5
Writer: Al Ewing
Pencils; Greg Land
The dust settles, the team is being built, new headquarters ready, now who’s gonna lead the team? If Spidey get’s his way it’ll be the Superior Avengers, or will Luke Cage get to lead his Mighty Avenger for hire? Elsewhere we have Spectrum, Ronin, Lil Power Man, and White Tiger taking care of some business or the dark magic variety. A battle of whits and fist begins between the Cages and Superior Spider-man and his henchmen. Spectrum lets us in on how the mysterious new Ronin tends to slip away when he gets what he wants done. Lurking in the shadows a woman who via Terrigen Mist now how the ability to slow down time to a stop. This title has been awesome, but this issue didn’t live up to the Mighty things I’ve been enjoying in this title
I flat out loved the fight between PowerMan(Luke Cage) and Power Woman(Jessica Jones) and the Superior! Oh and the Sensational She-Hulk stepping and dropping some legality on Spidey was just awesome! I’m always down for the appearance of the real She-Hulk. Al Ewing def cement’s his team with the way he writes them, it just feels like the title it’s supposed to be. I don’t feel like any character feels unnecessary on the team.
Of course Greg Land’s art is gonna be the first thing I complain about, it’s just nasty. Why does everyone have to be posing, and the backgrounds all blurry. This issue was cool but def slowed the pace down after the first four. It kinda dragged its feet on the carpet but at least it worked up some static to give me a little shock. Not enough Falcon, everything could always use more Falcon. Seriously, Marvel let me write a Falcon title, or a Hank Pym title.
I still maintain this is a solid title, it may have lulled a little in this issue, but even so this issue does pack a punch. Cages vs Superior Spider-man, She-Hulk stepping in. Everyone else dealing with a three headed dogmanthing, and this was the slow issue. I def recommend this title, Al Ewing is making very cool moves in this title and I do expect good things coming out of this title soon. This one was a wait for the trade kinda issue.
