I'm super behind with my reading because adulting is so much fun, yay! (NOT)
Aaron's work at Marvel has been a real hit or miss for me.
I loved his Thor run but the rest of his Marvel stuff hasn't grabbed me. Unfortunately his debut Avengers issue had me feeling "Meh"
I've become disenchanted with the Avengers franchise these last few years because Marvel just seemed to be pumping out as many Avengers titles as they could to grab some cash.
The Avengers relaunch had me thinking things have changed because there is only one title with a great team of characters and some great art. But sadly I'm not enamoured with the book.
Dead Celestials are raining from the sky, which seems like a great premise, but why do I feel so disconnected from the story?
Because it's all about big spectacle with no heart.
I really enjoyed Avengers: No Surrender as it felt like a true Avengers book. The stakes were high, the teams all came together and you could feel the team spirit.
I don't get that feeling from this relaunch and if the story doesn't improve by issue 3 I'll be dropping this title.
You may think "Geez Ferdi, that's a bit harsh", but with so many great titles being published I have to cut titles that doesn't immediately catch my interest.
Big creators and big characters does not make a great book. You have to have some heart in there, which this book is lacking.
Rant over. Thank you 🙏
10 Day Comic Cover Challenge: Day 4 - Peter Parker: Spider-Man #1 - John Romita Jr. is arguably my favorite Spider-Man artist and this cover is one of my favorite pieces of his. It’s a very “Batman-ish” style cover, but I love the brooding element of Spider-Man in the rain. I also have a giant print of this framed in my house as well.
10 Day Comic Cover Challenge: Day 3 - Incredible Hulk #340 - Todd McFarlane is the most dynamic artist to ever contribute to the medium in my opinion. I love this cover. Found this issue at a yard sale last year and was obligated to pick it up outta respect for the cover alone. Classic!
