    Comics: The Gathering

    Avengers #37 is my favourite issue of Time Runs Out due to awesome characterization, interesting plot advancements and an unexpectedly exciting twist.

    Hickman has weaved quite a tapestry between his two comics, and I love it more and more each issue. He’s not a linear storyteller, so there are bumps along the way, but overall, I am love this whole event. I almost wish it didn’t have to end in Secret Wars or whatever insane story’s going to come out of it next Spring.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    So it’s the same song – a great story (for those who have been following along), terrific art, and lots of exciting events pushing this complex and compelling story forward. I like it!

    Unfortunately, visual consistency just isn’t this book’s forte. Mike Deodato steps in as artist this month, giving the series a much darker and more foreboding vibe than it had in the previous two chapters. In general, that suits the setting and the tone of Hickman’s writing. On the other hand, one flaw from Original Sin rears its head again in terms of figures standing out in stark contrast from the backgrounds. Some scenes also suffer from the lack of distinction between female characters or Deodato’s tendency to draw frail, elderly Steve Rogers as a fairly robust character.

    Things are still muddy and mysterious, but this issue, at least, feels like it’s doing far more with the characters it has in terms of defining them and giving them a context in the greater narrative. The fact that it does more to define that NARRATIVE is also not hurting anything. I still have faith that Hickman will fill out the backstory of exactly what went down and while we’re losing out on some emotional investment, there are enough small hints and details to make it feel like it’s all building to something substantial.

    Avengers #37 is a rare oddity for a book that is this high profile and with a pair of veterans working on it like Jonathan Hickman and Mike Deodato. Hickman’s writing is rock solid, but Deodato’s artwork pulls the rug out from under this script. Avengers #37 should be read from a plot perspective, but this artwork is not up to Deodato’s typical standard, and certainly not befitting a comic that costs this much and is as high profile as Avengers. Am I still excited for time to run out? Oh, hell yeah, I am….as long as these powerful women can return to being powerhouse heroes and not plastic objects…
