    Is this and/or New Avengers any good? I haven't really read any Avengers stuff since Siege and I kind of miss it. Bendis' New Avengers was sort of my guilty pleasure, even when it wasn't very good. Siege seemed like a good jumping off point at the time, but I've considered picking up the trades since then

    I'm not normally an Avengers fan, but I've been really enjoying it. I can go so far as saying it's consistently better than my X-Books.

    At this point I would read anything he draws, even if it was written by Jeph Loeb.

    Both have been pretty good. Avengers started out not-so-good but has gotten better.

    well, alright then.

    Darn you Bendis. Just when I get out, you always suck me back in.

    I haven't liked it. But hey, that's me.

    Do you like The Office? Bendis' Avengers is The Office of the Marvel universe.

    I liked the British one, not the American one. So I guess if the Avengers is supposed to feel like a cookie cutter sit com, instead of an exciting adventure series, Bendis did hit the mark.

    It's written like a sitcom. All the characters say one-liners and compete with each other to be the funniest.

    I don't think that should be what the Avengers should be about. If Bendis wanted to make a sit com version of a super hero comic, Bendis should create some new characters for that, not try and change the Avengers into that.

    I never said that is what the Avengers should be like but that is basically - in between the numerous events - what it has become.

    You're right. I never looked at it that way.

    The documentary style thing he was trying to do (which was pretty terrible) for a while there just compounds that theory.

    Avengers Annual #1 by Bendis & Dell'Otto
    (I wish they had the right number on this)

    Wonder Man takes his ragtag team of nobodies and goes public with the bad things the Avengers have done recently. They take away WM's ionic essence or whatever it is so he's basically powerless and the lock him up. He begs Beast to see what he's trying to do, and suggests that since Wanda brought him back from the dead he might not even be real. After everyone leaves, he literally disappears.

    The whole Wonder Man-as-a-turncoat thing seemed flimsy up until the end. Dell'Otto's art and page structure is amazing - I think this is the first of his art I've seen that wasn't painted and it still looked great.

    This book is terrible. All of this garbage with Norman Osborn...it's just bad.

    It's just a bunch of stuff happening. There is no flow and no direction, and it feels like I've read this story 50 times over the last 5 years or so (Osborn breaks out of custody, acquires followers, challenges authority, etc. etc. etc.). The team is a mess and there is no structure to it at all. Nothing memorable or interesting is happening and it just plain sucks. Ugh.
