AvX continues to hit all of my event comic buttons, the scale of this thing is just massive, and I’m really enjoying it. That said, this instalment did feel a little less epic than the first 3, and that’s probably because it spent rather a lot of time showcasing the various fights we’re also seeing in the tie-ins. I also think that, even though it was in space, the Thor Vs Phoenix scene should have probably had words in it, to give it more impact. But by the end of this issue, I was more pumped than ever, not only is it Avengers Vs X-Men, but it’s Avengers Vs X-Men ON THE MOON! Plus, the Phoenix is actually here. This is where shit gets real. I also liked how Hickman reigned in his usual Hickman-ness here, and just told the story, no pontificating, just good writing, his issues were what I was most concerned about at the start, because of how different his style is, but he adapted well. Is this JRjr’s last issue? If so, it was a great way to bow out, I think he’s done some of his best work ever on this series.
