Oh, Avengers, why can’t I quit you?
You see, I’ve never really been an Avengers guy. I’m an X-Men guy…and an Iron Man guy…maybe, just maybe…a West Coast Avengers guy…but never an Avengers guy.
And yet I’ve read a whole lot of Avengers. Just not on a monthly basis. I read Bendis’ whole run in hardback trades. It was awesome. But…you know…I’m not an Avengers guy…so I’ve never read it on a monthly basis…really… Maybe occasionally, but never for long…
And now I find myself 41 issues into an Avengers run and despite often thinking, “Maybe I’ll drop it after the next issue…” it keeps pulling me back in.
Which is a long winded way of saying, “I don’t really have a lot to say about this issue but I liked it. A lot.” I mean, this is just a series of fights narrated by the Black Panther. Which sounds simple but it’s very well executed.
Good comic is good. ‘Nuff said.
