    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    Combined with the amazing art by Salvador Larroca, it’s an impressive work of art and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. It’s an involved story, and it’s not always easy to follow as we wait for some aspects to be explained – but it’s very, very good.

    It all makes for a fun read that has ramifications for more than one of Hickman’s Avengers titles. And hopefully it’s a sign that the series’ recent doldrums are receding.

    The bottom line is that if you have been following the Avengers titles, this book is a must read game changer. It was exceptionally well done and Hickman and Larroca should be complimented for nailing what could otherwise be a boring talking head style issue. This issued has moved Avengers up on my “must read” list.

    Avengers is firing on all cylinders again and there is an aura in this comic that Hickman is priming for something big again. This is an issue over 40 in the making when you consider New Avengers, and it was really satisfying to read this conflict. Avengers #28 is a tense bit of character work, but Hickman and Larroca do it very well and I highly recommend you check this issue out.

    Weekly Comic Book Review

    Larroca’s artwork in this issue is technically very competent but it is also highly flat, I know comic book art is 2D images in sequence but they should convey movement, scale and scope. Even with spot on anatomy and perspective it still feels very static, flat and lacking in depth. I think the colors of Frank Martin don’t particularly mesh well with Larroca’s line work, his palettes are very muted, lots of monochromatic greys dominating the artwork does not do the it any favours. You can see what the art team were attempting by making the warmly coloured panels of the Hulk and the incursion event pop in contrast to the grey tones of the rest of the issue but it doesn’t really work as well as I think they’d hoped.
