Review Group #361 - Avengers Arena #3

Postby GLX » Wed Jan 09, 2013 4:46 pm

The review thread for Avengers Arena #1 was one of the most popular in recent memory. Can this week's thread come close to matching it?

Avengers Arena #3

Image

• X-23 vs. ANNIHILATION's Cammi!

• A mystery opponent vs. AVENGERS ACADEMY's Sentinel!

• Who is the killer stalking the competitors in their sleep?

• Plus: Darkhawk equals death!


If you can't make it to your local comic shop, a digital copy can be found here.

Ze rules:

Review as often or as little as you like. Once you've posted 5 reviews, you will be awarded 1 pick. You can post 5 reviews, right? That's a totally achievable goal and with day and date digital releases becoming the standard, it shouldn't matter if your shop ordered enough copies of this weeks comic or not.

When multiple Review Groupers have posted 5 (or more) qualifying reviews, they will be awarded their pick in the order that they qualified. What constitutes a qualifying review? Any review posted (with a score on a scale from 0-10, that's right 0!) within 1 calendar month of the thread going live. Reviews are to be at least 5 sentences long. It shows that a) you have at least read this week's pick and b) you have some unique insight into the comic.

Reviews posted while waiting in line for your pick will be applied to your next pick.

I'll be keeping track of everyone's progress with the newly christened Spreadsheet of Fantastic (RIP, Spreadsheet of Doom) and reporting the results in the Current Members list in the weekly OP. When it's your turn to make a pick, I will PM you. If you do not respond to me by Midnight EST the following Sunday, you will lose your pick and I will start a poll to determine that week's selection.

Any week in which we do not have a Review Grouper with 5 qualifying picks, we will determine the week's comic via poll.

If it's your week to pick, remember to keep it under $3.99.

Naturally, this new system is new and it may be necessary to make changes as we go.

No one is slated to make a pick for next week, so a poll will go up to determine it.

Suggestions welcome.

Don't bother. I flipped through it in the store and...

Why does this fucking book exist?

Spotlight is on Cammi (from Giffen's excellent Annihilation). By spotlight all I mean is they cover a bit of her back story by revealing that SHIELD's counterpart SWORD not only has cameras throughout the universe but that this Earthbound agency has extradition treaties with the Badoon, Shi'ar & the Kree. Earth has always been a target, not a player (at this level) in inter-galactic politics hasn't it?

Darkhawk reveals why he's there (not being a teen anymore) and it's laugh out loud silly. It's because he's always been considered a teen super-hero. :lol: If this were the case, why weren't any other New Warriors brought there? Why no Young Avengers, Runaways, Hellians, New Mutants, Power Pack, or any number of teen X-Men? Why no Rick Jones?

Anyway, the point is moot because Darkhawk dies, and probably that Sentinel Kid from Avengers Academy who I had started to like when that book was cancelled to make way for this blood/crapfest.

Art wise, it's okay, but the Darkhawk death scene is confusing. At first glance you have no idea what/who is attacking him, then it looks like his own suit attacked himself. Either way it's sad Chris Powell had to go. (Spoiler - a new Darkhawk will appear next issue... Hoorah! :roll: ).

I have no interest in finding out who the mystery killer, and I beg Review Group to never pick this book again.

Three issues in, Avengers Arena has turned out to be an entertaining series that needs a little bit more push to reach being great comic. What keeps it from being that series, this time? The mystery attacker that's going after the kids on the battlefield. The plot thread could be something cool in the long run, but for now it's just lukewarm material. Outside of that, the spotlight on Cammi was cool to read. Love the colors in the flashback sequence. Not sure how long I'll keep up with it, but I like the characters and there's still plenty of potential to become a badass. Dennis Hopeless and company need to capitalize on it.

(Oh and keep an eye for a recurring panda image that's been in every issue so far).

7.4 out of 10
