Why doesn't Daken have pupils or irises?

Wow, this was the worst thing I've read in a long time. I've pretty well checked out of the Marvel U since Secret Invasion, which was crap. Although I intend to give the new FF team a fighting chance, if this is any indication I am not missing much and saving a lot of cash that would otherwise be wasted on a book like this, a $3.99 book bloated with ugly-looking previews I don't intend to read.

The argument between Clint and Parker read like two cranky five year olds, it got worse when characters like Jessica Drew, who's killed God knows how many people chimes in against killing. The worst, though is Carol Danvers' & Bucky's lines.

Everything was ugly, from the pencils to the color palette used, to the cover.

I feel remorse having bought this book.

What can I say, I wanted to like it. Clint is one of my favorite characters and I have no problem with him wanting to kill Osborne. But books like this offer nothing to me.

Besides that, it made for a horrible "one-shot" as it's clearly supposed to lead into some other Dark Reign book but who knows what? Which is some BS right there.

It's part of a series of one-shots, Marvel have been pimping them a lot and of course it also links in with Bendis' 2 Avengers books.

Each one of the List books is supposed to be by the current author and a brand new artist.

Dark Reign: The List: Avengers is by Bendis & Djurdevic.

Dark Reign: The List: Daredevil is by Diggle & Tan.

etc.

Seems like it should've just been one of Bendis' 2 Avengers books, then.

In terms of the art here, I thought he portrayed the action scenes quite well--but wherever someone's face was shown it made me cringe inside.

Also, on page 5, in the bottom left corner--why is Jessica Drew sniffing her fingers? Freshness check?

Apparently Djurdjevic only drew this issue in 9 days.

I know I'm picking up the Punisher one because I want to see what Remender can do with good art backing him up.

With 2 Avengers books to work with, I don't know why you'd need yet another book.

So they can have an event!

It's like how Secret Invasion or Blackest Night are separate series.
