Story: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Walter Simonson
Publisher: Marvel Comics (Dan Buckley)
Release Date: September 19th, 2012
While the other Avengers battle Emma Frost and Scott Summers on the front line, Hawkeye and Spider-Woman are busy battling Negative Man in a Shield facility. I feel like this is leading up to the final issues of Bendis' run with Avengers rather than a true AvX tie in. Granted, we see the battle exploding on the first page and Tony Stark and other Avengers discuss being tired from the fight, but that is all we see that deals with the main arc.
This issue was interesting to say the least and it was nice to see the exchanges between Hawkeye and Spider-Woman. I have truly fallen for Brian Michael Bendis' work and this was no exception. Also, the teaser with Hydra and Skrulls that appear toward the ending of this book have definitely sparked an interest in me for the coming issues.
I give Avengers #30 an 8/10. Good book, good art but not too much to write about.
