  1. Really started to enjoy this once the Guardians showed up… so, I’ve been enjoying it for 2 issues.

  2. Bagley’s renditions of the Avengers are alright, but I don’t really like the way he draws the Guardians, especially Rocket Raccoon

  3. I might have to pick this up just for Thanos and the Guardians. They were in the previous issue, right?

    • PymSlap PymSlap (@alaska_nebraska) says:

      Yes the Guardians of the Galaxy were in the last issue, and they’re convening with each other to stop Thanos, but if I remember correctly he attacked the Avengers in “Avengers Assemble” #4. In the previous issue, Clint Barton insults Rocket Raccoon and kisses Black Widow.

    • Thanks. I might pick up the last two issues then.

      I have one more question though. When exactly is this supposed to be taking place because that Clint and Widow thing plus Thanos and Star Lord being back without Richard Rider seems as if it’s before Fear Itself?

    • I’m assuming the present, but there’s been no explanation of how Star Lord and Thanos wiggled free of the Cancerverse. One of my biggest complaints about this series is how it doesn’t seem to be taking place in the same continuity as the rest of the Marvel Universe. I know they want it to be “accessible” to new fans of the film, but honestly the book feels more like it’s supposed serve as a bridge between films than anything else . . .

      Oh, and I ‘m not really enjoying how Bendis is writing the Guardians, Rocket’s quiping over pizza aside . . .

    • I guess I’ll look at this better in the store before making a final choice.

      I thought I remember reading that this series was supposed to be in continuity, but it was just featuring the Avengers from the movie and it wasn’t going to rely on much history in order to allow new readers. However, it seems as if it’s a middle ground between the current Marvel books and the Marvel Adventure (or whatever the kids line is called now) books..

  4. This book is pretty good but I just found out that Bendis and more importantly Bagley are leaving the series after issue 7 I believe so I probably will too unfortunately.
