This New Avengers book is a welcome, yet "under-whelming" one. The writing is spot-on (as usual for Bendis) & many artists collaborated. Big names. The kind you'd expect awesome stuff from. Yet, because each artist is only on board for one, maybe two issues, the different art styles make this an uneven collection, especially the Finale, where Bryan Hitch's pencils seem rushed a lot of times (including the least flattering depiction of Wolverine I've (probably) ever seen!). Also, the fact tha ...more

Basically, it's the events that happened after civil war when the Superhuman Registration Act was passed into law and all hell broke loose between Cap and Tony and a civil war happened between the avengers. But only this time, Norman Osborn aka The Green Goblin was the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he has control over it and the police and basically pass up ex-cons and criminals as his new team of "superheroes" and creating his own team of Avengers or what the original avengers call as the "Dark Aven ...more

New Avengers volume one finale, wrap up of Siege cross-over, happy ending (except for Nefaria--sheesh, Wolvie!)

In my opinion this is a perfect wrap up for the New Avengers series. The book collects the final issues of New Avengers Vol.1, New Avengers Annual #3 and The List. The first story-line is showing us Ronin’s attempt to assassinate Norman Osborn. The story is collected in The List and the New Avengers Annual. Cliff Barton is captured and tortured by Osborn. But the cavalry arrives and saves the day. Captain America is back and the New Avengers are ready to participate in the next big thing: Siege. ...more

This Siege tie-in has some great material, but also has some retread which brings it down somewhat. For those who buy all the tie-ins trying to get the complete picture of the event, it can be annoying to see the same story again and again without even changing the POV. That said, this is still a worthwhile collection.

The first story in the collection is Dark Reign: The List, which recounts Ronin's (aka Hawkeye) attempted assassination of Osborn. While this is an entertaining story, with some gr

This book only deserves 2 1/2 - 3 stars based on it's overstimulating illustration, difficult to follow narrative structure and having WAY more characters than I am aware of (maybe not a problem for hardcore fans, but...). How did Loki fit into all this, and why did he do what he did at the end? These things were not explained and I was left scratching my head wondering what the devil was going on.

So, why does it get 4 stars? WHY? The fact that, and the manner in which, Wolverine

Bonus: entirely free of Leinil Yu!

This starts out very promising, but ends up feeling strangely anticlimactic and disjointed; possibly the rest of the story is in the Siege mini-series.

Poor Bucky Cap gets no respect from the New Avengers. Steve Rogers returns, and people hug him. (This is so adorable.) Also, I really love the relationship between Steve and Carol Danvers, for some reason, even though it has consisted of, like, ten panels in thirteen volumes. There is just so much support and res

Bendis has always been most on his game when writing this incarnation of the Avengers. This is the final book of that series, tying in with the epic Siege storyline, and he does here what he failed to do in the other book. He makes this feel dramatic, important, interesting and truly a climax for a six year run. All the characters are back... the outlaw Avengers reunited with the original Cap, and closing up all the loose plot threads of the past several years. We get to see Luke and Jessica and ...more

I have to say, I went into this volume not expecting an end to the series that felt like it fit, knowing that New Avengers was shortly restarted again. But after reading this it came off as the perfect ending place for this group of heroes as a team. This team was defined by the big Marvel events during the comics run and with the end of Osborn and the Superhuman Registration act it felt a fitting time for them to part ways.

Although Osborn fell, and the team was there for that, I really enjoyed

This is a nice wrap up to the New Avengers series. I would have liked more about this particular team but alas it was not meant to be. My only question is about why Bendis/Marvel decided to bring Cap back to resolve EVERYTHING. I know he always saves the day and he's like the Superman of Marvel so he can't really stay dead, but it seemed kind of gimmicky and lazy. It does make "sense" in the continuity of things since all of the original Avengers make their way back from their mysterious hiatuse ...more

Well, I finished this book two days ago, and I'm having trouble remembering what most of it was about. I guess that says something.

The one part that I really liked was Clint Barton totally going after the Dark Avengers, even though he knew it was pretty much a suicide mission. It's about time someone snapped and went after them, even though the odds were stacked against him.

And, from what I remember, there were a lot of splash pages, which I dislike. I think they're just lazy story telling, esp

Great finale to the series. Like most of the other New Avengers tie in collections, you definitely need to read the main event in order to get any kind of context for what is going on, but it does a great job of filling in the character moments and behind the scenes narrative that make the larger event more meaningful. It's kind of like if they turned Siege into a movie: the tie ins would be all of the extra scenes they added that "weren't in the book", but it makes the whole thing fit together ...more

Norman Osborn decides to attack Thor’s home with the help of the Sentry and various reformed villains.

Clint Barton (Ronin) decides to attack Norman solo, Spiderman and Spider Woman play with some monkeys and the team takes on Nefaria.

This book focuses on Hood’s crew and the New Avengers including Ronin (aka Hawkeye), Mockingbird, Luke Cage, Capt. America (the new one) and Spider woman.

Good story and lots of info but it doesn’t really add much to the Siege storyline.

Captain America is back

This graphic novel was good, but not perfect.
As with any of the crossover events, any individual volume only provides pieces but not the whole story. The action scenes were good, although considering it is about a siege, there weren't as many as I'd thought there would be.
Interestingly for a comic, the best moments were personal ones, interactions between people. Luke and Jessica with their baby were great scenes, and I even enjoyed the moments with Red Hood and Madame Masque, villains though th

This is a reasonably satisfying end to this incarnation of the New Avengers. The parts that deal with the New Avengers and their interactions are quite good. The time spend dwelling on the Hood I didn't enjoy as much, as I didn't really care about him and his ongoing quest to regain lost powers. The Siege tie-ins, while full of good moments (Steve Rogers returns! Wolverine, Nick Fury, his team, the Young Avengers and everyone else make an appearance!), retread too much of the main Siege issues. ...more

Ahhhhhh so now I know where all that missing action that made the conflict so weak and over with so fast in the main "Siege" book was.
It was in this book.
This book was a blast
and the decision to separate this material from the main book's "Siege" material was in my opinion "Lame-brained"!

Of course MARVEL tries to milk it.
But as dedicated as this geek is, I never intended to buy 50 books to get the whole "Siege" story.

Nice try Marvel. :)

I did a reread of all the New Avengers recently. This is a standout in comics for me on so many levels. It has the best roster, best heart, best dialogue, best writing and phenomenal art. Bendis really nailed this story line and this entire run.
Siege is yet another cross-over and while it means the end of Norman Osborne, it wasn't well done.
Sep 10, 2010 Mike rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Good characterizations, interesting "what will they do?" plots. Weak-ish art in the middle but interesting. Great double-sized last issue to go gonzo with double-page honorarium spreads, but felt like it was more of a farewell from Bendis to friends he'd never see again, than a balls-out climax o an incredible run of stories.

So many great things in this book, a few less than great things but mostly great things.
A few times were the jokes were pushing a little close to self-referential corniness, but they were good.
And seriously what is up with Osborn's hair?

Hmm, confused? Really don't know... will blame it on too many info :-(
What I can say as I gave it 2 stars, is wonderful art work and some parts which gave sense. Rest is at the moment beyond my understanding. Need to get some brains before I re-read it.

I have just loved Luke Cage and Peter Parker in this whole run! Cage's last monologue almost had me in tears. I thought this was a fitting conclusion, although I'm not sure why Loki was a woman and then a man, or what his motivation was during this whole volume.
