New Avengers #3 Review by Jude Terror

THE GREAT ONE DOES IT AGAIN! Who saw that twist coming?!

[spoiler]THE ANCIENT ONE?!?![/spoiler]

Fucking awesome! The Great One really shows why He is the Great One in this issue. The dialog between Spiderman, The Thing, and Wolverine is fantastic and really fits their characters. I love how The Great One is able to give a real, three dimensional voice to these characters.

The Great One has redefined Marvel magic in a good way. The handling of the magic characters is excellent. Dr. Strange is really going to have his work cut out for him, and he will need the help of Black Dr. Strange and Hworang from Tekken to defeat the super cool Big Bad revealed in this issue.

I can't wait to read more of this, and I hope Marvel let's The Great One write ten Avengers books.

11/10

New Avengers #3 Review by Bizarro Jude Terror, a.k.a Eli Katz

THE OVERRATED ONE DOES IT AGAIN! Who saw that lame twist coming?! No one, of course. Because the story doesn’t make any sense.

Fucking horrible! The Overrated One really shows why He is the Overrated One in this issue. The dialogue between Spiderman, The Thing, and Wolverine is terrible and sounds like a parody of Bendis-speak. It’s stunning how The Overrated One is unable to give real, three dimensional voices to any of these characters.

The Overrated One has left Marvel magic completely arbitrary and undefined. The handling of the magic characters is illogical. Dr. Strange is made to look like a sniveling wimp, who will need the help of Black Dr. Strange and Hworang from Tekken to defeat the lame Big Bad revealed in this issue.

I will avoid all Avengers books for the foreseeable future, and I hope Marvel stops The Overrated One from writing anymore team books.

-11/10

New Avengers 3

This book continues to be not very good.

Not very funny back and fourth between Thing and Spidey. Jason Aaron did it better in the Dethlok arc in Wolverine Weapon X.

Jessica Jones is not very good at punching spirit-y things.

What was the point of Voodoo being the new SS if he just crys and gets fucked up all the time. Strange admitting he kinda sucks now is lame

Iron Fist being protected because of his er Iron Fist is also non-sense making. Bendis magic rules everyone.

I did like the reveal at the end. IDK why, but I did.

And at least it was very very pretty

Story 3
Art 9

Overall 6

Immonen really helped this negative review out a lot. It should probably be like a 4

Thanks to Victorian Squid for the... uh... comic books which I acquired in barter-type system.

New Avengers #3

Meh, meh, and more meh. I don't give a shit about what was happening in the issue except for the reveal at the end. As for that, I'm sure it will lose it's potential next issue.

As for Immonen's art, it was good but it was hurt by the parts where there's just Iron Fist.

I would give it a 4 but since it's the third issue, 3's a better rating.

BlueStreak's Photo Review

Instead of presenting a formal review, I've decided to share a note that I'm sending Mr. Bendis after reading this issue.

Image
Here's the text in case you can't read the photo.

BlueStreak's Letter to Mr. Bendis wrote:From the Desk of BlueStreak, Textbook Manager at Law


Dear Mr. Bendis,

Enclosed is a copy of Essential Dr. Strange Vol. 1. Obviously, you need it more than me.

I suggest that you read up on it and take notes as how to not make Dr. Strange and Brother Voodoo seem like worthless little bitches.

Note that Dr. Strange even at reduced power levels, still managed to win the day without the help of your man-crush Luke Cage.

If you have any questions, get in touch with Stan Lee or one of the countless other writers who succeeded in not making Doctor Strange look like he needs the Avengers to help him get dressed in the morning.




Sincerely,

BlueStreak


And here's the book I'm sending him.

Image

It'll be going in the mail first thing Monday morning.

Review Score: 0/10

They said to have fun with it.

I figure that means I have to go to one extreme or another.

To be fair, when I was going through my trade collection as I moved, I noticed that the writer most represented in my library was Bendis. So, I'm not exactly a hater of Bendis. Just of this book.

For next week, Hawk has picked...

Garrison #5
as selected by john lewis hawk[/center]Written by JEFF MARIOTTE
Art and cover by FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA

Garrison finally gets answers to questions about his shadowy origins – answers that raise even more questions. Whether he'll live to put those answers to use is, of course, anybody's guess.
