Here again as in New Avengers (1) we have a mixed bag. I didn't really get into the story line in the first collection but found the art, the writing and the book itself in many ways superior to this one. Don't get me wrong, this one does have it's strengths.

First the humor here is a bit more front and center and works very well. As this one opens it actually drew me in a bit more than the first collection. The problem is I found it losing me as it went on. The story isn't bad but neither is it great and I sort of lost interest (even with the semi-cliffhanger ending).

Also, this is a graphic novel/comic book collection and art must be front and center. The "inset story" in the book seems to me to be very weak art wise. I assume it's an intentional change for the point of the story, but still I didn't care for the way it was done.

All in all still a good Marvel read, but will not be among my "favs".
