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

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.
