I'm not a fan but some artists just don't work well in a mainstream, superhero medium. In my opinion, Bianchi is definitely one of those artists.


I loved him on Shining Knight and that's it. He works really well on Thanos Rising thanks to the superb writing of Aaron.

I'm just glad Bianchi isn't stuck with Loeb again.

Back onto Infinity, it's kinda funny that I can't remember a recent event that juggles multiple plot points..it's usually one major story decompressed through 6+ issues or so.

Every issue of Infinity will introduce 5 new plot points, and none of them will be addressed until the final issue where he brings it all together in one epic swoop, because Hickman.

This would be awesome. I wonder if the Avengers books will bridge the gap a bit.

Probably. I mean, this is all really just an extension of what he's doing in Avengers and New Avengets with Thanos and Spaceknights thrown in.

The reading guide at the back of #1 does imply that the Avengers books will be crucial.

I've heard, and now see with Infinity. 2 years removed will do that to you, that and a budget and a compelling need to be straight and narrow meaning... i wait till i have the money... instead of other... avenues.
