Because I didn't spend $3.99 on it. I kind of feel like I'd be cheating. :oops:

So did the Asgardians get massively depowered after their Ragnarok or what?

This comic was pretty darned cool, but I am tired of the decompression. I could have used at least one more scene. That whole debriefing text could have been that missing scene. Just talking heads is all it takes.

Another thing that is interesting is how the collaborative energy between Bendis and Copiel is a lot more tighter and crisp than what they had together on House of M. I think working with JMS has rubbed off Copiel very well.

yeah it looks good. I didn't feel it was decompressed at all though, a lot of shit happens.

Siege #1 by Bendis & Coipel

This is a damn good book. Bendis writes a tight story that only has a couple of pages of "talking heads" and the rest is action. He even utilizes The Sentry well. The plot is clear and straightforward and well written.

Coipel also does a good job her. His art is beautiful as well as expressive, though half a point gets taken off because the order of some of his panels needs a little deciphering.

My major gripe with this issue was $3.99 for 23 pages of story, some of which was already revealed in previews. The rest of the book is a couple of pages of transcripts by Osborn's Avengers. And a preview for Loeb's next issue of Hulk. So you're paying the extra dollar for a preview of a book you may or may not like.

Story 9
Art 8.5
Total score 7.75 (Point deducted for Marvel's overcharaging)

I dunno when my Review will be on, because comics could be delayed until Saturday because of the shitty weather here in the UK.

You are paying an extra dollar for the event. Marvel has not been dishonest in this. Dark Avengers and New Avengers are $3.99 with no extra content. This also has a cardstock cover.

I can't believe I am defending Marvel's pricing policies, but this is long ago old news, it should not be a surprise to anyone. Marvel charges more for their most successful and most high profile books. They told us they were going to do this.
