Preview



In Need of a Miracle


Infinity has been an amazing event so far, and one of the best that Marvel has produced in a while. Although the main series itself has been the stand out part of this event, as it should be, the Avengers and New Avengers tie-ins have also been simply outstanding.

Plot

Following the surprising death of a Builder at the hands of Thor, Captain America and his army take the fight to straight to the Builders.

Review

This was yet another brilliant issue in the Infinity event, and one of the best from the Avengers series. Jonathan Hickman followed on from the amazing events of Infinity #4 perfectly, keeping the story flowing smoothly. The issue did however fall down in quality for the same reason every other Avengers issue in Infinity has, and that's due to Hickman not wanting to take too much of the development away from Infinity itself, using this to work in some extra development. In saying that this was still a very exciting and dramatic issue, as although there wasn't as much suspense in the action as there is in the Infinity issues, they were still very entertaining sequences, having a fantastic tone.

The artwork was also amazing, as although like last issue it wasn't Leinil Francis Yu's best work, it was still outstanding. It was however not to the level of quality that Yu usually produces, with the artwork lacking in detail at times, and having a few imperfections. It was however overall wonderful, and for most of the issue it was simply beautiful. The layout of Yu's artwork was also once again outstanding, being extremely dynamic, adding a lot of tone and depth to the issue, showing why Yu's style's perfect for this tie-in. The action sequences were also very exciting and explosive, and it showed exactly why cosmic battles can be some of the best that comics produce visual wise.
