The New Avengers never lets me down. Every time I get a new issue, something interesting happens and I am actually excited to see what is coming next. This issue focused on Hawkeye, Spider-Woman  and Luke Cage (with hair!). This is our first insight to what the X-Men are actually doing to their prisoners held for tribunal. The issue is beautiful. Every page shows simplistic, dark and yet gripping artwork that makes the reader analyze the pages.

The three earlier mentioned Avengers are trying to escape from their prison and run into a lot of obstacles along the way. I definitely do not want to spoil this issue so all I can say is if you are reading this series at all or even if you aren't, you can enjoy what happens here. A clear picture is really starting to be painted as to what the Phoenix Five are turning into...

Pick this issue up! That is all I can say.... 10/10.


  1. i really enjoyed this issue too, i loved the twist at the end.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it as well. I honestly have not been enjoying "The Avengers" comics for the most part but this title has been consistently good. Also, thanks for reading my blog!

  2. yeah - that issue was really good - i'm always happy when Spider-Woman gets a little more to do than stand around in the background - and the twist at the end was just heartbreaking

    1. It truly was sad. I have only recently started like Spider-Woman as well as many of the other Avengers. This issue specifically helped me draw some form of connection with the people being held captive by the X-Men. I also think that this issue is a major turning point in the series because it shows us how cruel the X-Men are actually being to the Avengers which is not what you would expect from mutants that have been trying to become equal to everyone else for such a long time.
