When nitpicking occurs from me it is because early on I got bored or decided the book was laughable and then it never overcame that... New Avengers was that kind of book. I thought it was tedious to read and I would like to know exactly where I hate on Bendis, I have told Punchy and Twigg that their insane feelings of him being infalable are indeed insane, but I generally like his stuff and have defended him more often then torn him down. Next week's Avengers #2 started off laughable and got worse, but was okay by the end.

Marvel used to reward readers for nitpicking, No Prizes anyone?

If writing is sloppy, readers'll call out on it. As it's been forever.

welcome back. How was Greece? Very jealous. Greece and England are the two places in Europe I always wanted to visit.

Greece was pretty filthy the one time I was there, yuck. Give me the clean water and islands off Portugal, Madeira and Porto Santo.

Well there's more thant ONE reason for Greece but England has just always fascinated me. I'd love to travel the whole country and spend one week in London. I think it has to do with the music.

It was awesome, really hot, there was a heat wave, so it was 40 degrees celsius. I got a tan, got drunk a lot, ate some good food, and swam in nice clean ocean. Good times, but it's nice to back in rainy England.

Jude's review is amazing.

'By the hoary hosts of STFU' is brilliance.

It was a perfect first issue, just like SHIELD #1, which I also gave a ten to.

NEW AVENGERS #1
This was a very mixed bag for me, I will first off say that this is definitely a book for people who enjoyed the current New Avengers run by Bendis. I was sorta hoping that there would be more of a roster shake up but aside from the Thing (which I absolutely love) being added it is pretty much the same cast. I loved the back and forth between Tony, Steve, and Luke... selling the 'newly remodeled' Avengers mansion was fun and I loved the line by Steve 'who do you want? you can't have Thor or Iron Man'' and Wolverine saying 'Hey, I'm an X-man and on TWO Avengers teams... Multitasking. it is my mutant power' I thought was funny also... but I enjoy the Bendis speak so whatev's. My 2 quibbles with this issue are: why did this need to be a new number one? And I am just not that into the Marvel magic stuff, I absolutely love Dr. Strange and having him on the Avengers in the past was something I enjoyed but Daimon Hellstrom and Brother Vooodoo are 2 characters I could do without... so when this issue ends with Luke Cage picking up the Eye of Agamotto and having 2 possessed sorcerers after the new team I was a little let down but not enough to be disappointed... I am just over the whole magic stuff I guess. Stuart Immonen is a big draw for me on this book, I am super glad that he is still on an Avengers book and he does not disappoint here, I just love how he draws everyone and everything and I think this stuff is better than his Nextwave pencils but that is just me.

STORY - 7

ART - 10

OVERALL - 8

There are no perfect issues, only perfect idiots.
