    You Don't Read Comics

    Landy is beginning to develop a larger plot around the edges of the series thats playing with the format. Specific memories of how they came to be where they are...simply arent there for everyone. Its a clever way to draw the overarching plot into the form of a series that launches readers and characters alike directly into the middle of the action. It may have an awful title, but two issues in, All-Out Avengers is beginning to look like something special.

    The Story: I continue to be impressed with this series and the mystery at the heart of it. I love that we are dropped right into the action and the story emphasizes how dynamic and compelling the Avengers are as a team. I like how Doom is used in the story and the unknown narrator continues to be an interesting narrative choice that I want to see explored. Each issue makes me more intrigued to explore the bigger story. The Art: Land delivers some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. The visuals are thrilling and brilliantly showcase the characters.

    But Why Tho?

    All-Out Avengers #2 is such a fun book to read. What is brilliant about this book is that there is a desire to be cool because anything is possible. The story almost comes second; it is the setup of the fights and the action itself that drives the comic forward. Those glimmers of mystery are very intriguing, and there is clearly a massive villain hiding behind the curtain. It is the random nature of not knowing what the next issue will bring that gives the comic its excitement.

    The heroes are getting fast-forwarded to the action parts fast. Too fast for Tony’s taste now. Who is pulling the puppet strings (besides author Derek Landy)? This book has started pretty solid with clean art and a definitive story style! Get in on the ground floor while Issue #1 is also floating around!

    While the titles living up to its name, its proving to be a hindrance than an asset. The one issue, one mission plot is a bit of a rarity in todays comics, nothing here seems to work for me. Theres very little character development, and the subplot does run the risk of being a tad boring, and uninspired. Landy runs hot and cold for me, so Im remainingcautiously optimistic for the remaining arc.

    The call of Doctor Doom wielding both Mjolnir and Captain America's shield alongside the Avengers is enough to draw any fan of the franchise's attention, but be wary: This issue isn't worth the effort it takes to read. While the story sets out at full speed in media res, as promised by the title, it introduces a banal plot of Doom's light and dark selves being separated to create a far more dangerous Doom. Setting aside how this device undermines many of the essential aspects of Doom's stature, it offers nothing of interest in the battle that follows. Events move quickly with the surety that they will be resolved in 22 pages by a series of similarly familiar plot devices, and that is exactly what occurs. Vic and Dark-Doom are only contrasted in name; the issue's only humor occurs in dated references to The Big Lebowski. The entire affair is a bore – one made interminable by Greg Land's rigid figures and mid-coitus-rigor-mortis faces inducing cringes from the page. Leave it.
