Review: New Avengers #42

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

I am getting so tired of these interminable flashbacks.

Yes, I know that Brian Michael David Bendis has been planning Secret Invasion meticulously since before he was born. I just don’t need to read about every single freakin’ detail of the Skrulls plan in every single freakin’ issue of ‘New Avengers’ and ‘Mighty Avengers’ for the past three freakin’ months!


And while I’m ranting, it would be helpful if Jim Cheung could draw characters so we know who is who. The sequence between ‘Jessica Drew’ and Madame Hydra is so unbelievably confusing because both characters look exactly the same.

Oh and Wolverine cameos in a flashback.

From Marvel (preview): “For 42 issues readers of New Avengers have wondered, who caused the breakout in New Avengers #1 and why? And how was this the real start of the SECRET INVASION? Find out right here!” On sale June 25, 2008.

OMG… did you see what the Beast looks like?!

Well, thanks for the link and the love (I think).

I’ll see if I can’t dig up more for the weekend.

It might be a train wreck , but I’m going to hope the Wolverine manga ends up being good. ^_^ The beast was funny though and at least Night Crawler looked cool ?

I’ve stopped collecting New Avengers until it gets a decent review on here. I only read it for some comic relief between Spider Man and Wolverine anyways. ^_~

You are very welcome DiG , anything I can do to help.
