More News and Teasers From NYCC ‘11!


Rick Remender (Venom, Uncanny X-Force) and Gabriel Hardman (Hulk) are teaming up to take on the the Secret Avengers starting with Secret Avengers #22.

In Thunderbolts #171, the current team will confront the original Thunderbolts with a cover by Mark Bagley, who drew the original series; Jeff Parker and Declan Shalvey will be doing their usual great job inside the book.

The Runaways may or may not be joining the Avengers Academy in a two issue story arc by Christos Gage. We will find out the outcome in Avengers Academy #27 in March, 2012.

Review: Avengers #13 (Marvel)

Avengers #13 is a stark departure from the previous few issues, both in appearances and content. Chris Bachalo lays out most of the issue in a 12 panel 3×4 grid; each panel represents a one-on-one with an Avenger and a single camera. The decision to make these recordings was Tony Stark’s idea and not everyone was keen on talking about their role as an Avenger, especially Wolverine. The recordings are a mix of past, present, and future interviews and give us a glimpse of what is going to happen as Fear Itself plays out.

The story revolves around a few plotlines since this is a Fear Itself tie-in; the major storyline being about Sin’s Blitzkrieg on the USA and the rebuilding of Asgard under the direction of Tony Stark. There is also some drama going on inside the Avengers camp when Spider-Woman and Hawkeye seem to be awkwardly attracted to each other, despite protests from Ms. Marvel. This leads to some very funny moments on the one-on-ones later on.
