Avengers #34 Review


Cover - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?


Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 4.6

- On the cover we have Thor, and it combines with the past three issues to create a larger image. The variant cover shows scenes from Bendis' run. I really didn't have a problem with the art, as much as it appeared that the last few pages were a completely different art style, it just found it disconcerting at first. It also seemed at some points they forced sentences into the word bubbles and some words were missing, I had to reread several panels a few times to make sense of what they were trying to say. And my only other gripe was the 3 fan-service pages of the fight between the Avengers and Lord Gouzar, while they were all nicely done by multiple artists, it seemed like filler and could have been dropped to a single page. This issue ties up the End Times Arc for the Avengers. The Avengers are able to defeat Gouzar in the Microverse and bring Wasp back with them. Unfortunately Gouzar tags along and a battle ensues in Central Park. After being quickly defeated Wonder Man takes him back to the Microverse. In the end Tony Stark and Captain America decide the only way to face what's happening it to Go Bigger!
