BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS is an award winning comics creator, New York Times bestseller, and is the current writer .

BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS is an award winning comics creator, New York Times bestseller, and is the current writer of All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, which debuted at number one on national sales charts. He is one of the premier architects of Marvel's Ultimate comics line and has won five Eisner awards, including two 'Best Writer of the year' and was honored with the prestigious Inkpot award for comic art excellence. Could it be because, at this point in his career, he’s segueing away from the Avengers franchise altogether, in favor of taking on the X-Men books? Is this a case of separation anxiety?

Brian Michael Bendis did some nice character work with the return of Thor .

Brian Michael Bendis did some nice character work with the return of Thor and his effect on Captain America. The space-based adventure suffered from a significant chunk of its action occurring in another Avengers book, though Protector’s betrayal and remorse were well-handled. It's great to see him draw Thor, Hulk, and the other characters. I'd already expressed how the Avengers vs. X-men book/event was a colossal let down so it's really no surprise this tie-in didn't fare any better.

Usually when I read a book by Brian Michael Bendis, I am left with the impression that the story is competent, quirky, but often forgettable. He excels at the interplay between characters, and so slower stories, ones which bounce two heroes off against one another--and which feature a healthy dose of dialogue--play to his strength. Even his forgettable stories, in other words, are at least fun in the moment, regardless of whether they feature bells or whistles (or explosions or cosmic invasions). I regret to report, though, that this is the worst piece of writing of his that I’ve ever read.

This collection is part of the AvX crossover, which is part of the reason why I bought it. Despite the banner announcing the crossover at the top of the book, only three of the six issues relate to the larger Phoenix storyline. The first story (#25), a waste of paper about a confrontation with AIM, and the last issue (#30), about Mr. Negative and Hydra, are each framed by a splash page showing events from AvX. Apart from that single page (and shameful marketing ploy) both of these issues ignore the crossover. A separate two-part story, which launches a group of Avengers into space to retrieve a sample of the Phoenix’s energy (#26), uses the AvX connexion to spin itself off into a character piece about the Kree Avenger, the Protector (#27). Unexpectedly, this issue is the best of the collection--but note that that doesn’t mean it’s any good.

As for the core AvX issues, the Red Hulk attempts a stealth invasion of Utopia in #28. His plan is to wait until the telepathic White Queen is off the island before infiltrating the mutant headquarters and assassinating the Phoenix-possessed Cyclops. The story is undercut by the glaring oversight that the White Queen is there to confront him when he arrives.

The next issue, #29, appears to retell the events of Wolverine and the X-Men #15 from the perspective of a telepathic battle between Professor Xavier and Rachel Grey. In this story, Xavier exhibits a reticence to oppose the pro-Phoenix X-Men that is never once hinted at in the core AvX miniseries.

Let’s elaborate a bit on why this collection does not work. Bendis’s trademark dialogue rings hollow here, and his character portraits appear stilted and one dimensional. It’s clear that Bendis’s heart isn’t in any of these issues. Could this be because he’s too preoccupied with his writing chores on the main AvX series, which was being published concurrently? (He’s never had trouble writing multiple books before.) Could it be because, at this point in his career, he’s segueing away from the Avengers franchise altogether, in favor of taking on the X-Men books? Is this a case of separation anxiety?

More likely, I think the problem is that Bendis does not jive with penciler Walter Simonson. At all. Simonson is a legendary artist, one of the greats of the 1980s. He had a seminal run on Thor, but more to my liking was his X-Factor, which he worked on alongside his wife, Louise. Near the turn of the century, he also wrote and drew DC’s Orion, which I believe is a vastly underappreciated series. I haven’t seen much of his art since that time...but these issues are not up to par with anything he’s drawn in the past. Bendis provides him several opportunities to draw Thor again, and Simonson has fun and does a fair job rendering him, but everything else he draws comes across as rushed, blocky, cartoony, uninspired, and lacking detail. A different inker may have mitigated the blockiness, but the art problem is more diffuse than that. Not only is the detail lacking, but Simonson at points loses sight of basic mechanics of scale and perspective, of foreground and background. His figures appear to have been penciled independently of one another and then glued together into the same panel after the fact, à la Colorforms. See page 1 of issue #30 for an example of this, where the red and green Hulks grapple with Cyclops in a bafflingly choreographed configuration, and page 10 of the same issue, where Spider-Woman kicks a villain sideways, in the background, only for him to bounce forward, into the foreground, toward the direction of the reader. Not only do Simonson’s characters lack human dynamism, but his broader artistic choices are way out of synch with Bendis’s script. In issue #30 Mr. Negative appropriates a S.H.I.E.L.D. bunker stocked with battle robots. Bendis describes them, via Mr. Negative, as being “an entire generation ahead of anything that the armed forces of the United States is using” and as “very high-tech,” “beautiful weapons.” What Simonson provides, by contrast, are retro robot designs straight out of a 1950s science fiction movie.

This volume was a group effort, and as such both creators bear responsibility for the finished product. On all accounts, it is a failed effort, and its results border upon unreadability.

Gift for my brother. He loved it. Thank you so much

If your a Simonson fan this will not disappoint.

There are some things that we hope don't change ever. One of them is the art of Walt Simonson. He is back! With the same style as in his Thor's unique phase. Probably, if you are new to comics, you don't understand our felling of having Walt Simonson back drawing a sequence of histories. But if you are an old fan of comics, you know what I am talking about. I highly recommend it because of the art.

Very good, but the story jumps around to much. I would've liked more on the main plot.
As to what was going on with Hope.

The avengers are the best when it comes to graphic novels. I love the different story lines to the avenger sagas.this is an excellent book.
Although the story is very good I just want to comment on the technology, I use a Kindle HD 32GB which I bought 6 weeks before the launch of the new HEX which is really irritating.

However as I've been buying my content from Amazon for some time, it makes it a lot easier to purchase content but it's far from perfect. I have a list of items that would improve the UI and transaction experience Ie: duplicate the abilities from the website for the transaction such as provide Kindle's with the ability to purchase a Season Pass, easily add gift cards, plus many more.

Plus several items that would add a new dimension to viewing the entertainment, add a control adapter to a Kindle to control it when attached via HDMI on a HDTV. An angle control of video, books, Audible, improve bookmarks and verIfiable to create voice track for Graphic Novels with specific long term contracts for the players. Essentially a comic movie with professional audio.

I use your service on Google TV, Xboxes, PS3 & other server side software to feed the data if need be but to keep it portable add everything to improve the user experience, I've only scratched the surface and would like to brainstorm on improving your service. I'll be in Seattle the second week of December for two weeks.

Finally you've got to get someone in your tech support dept to know how to setup your dual antenna technology.
