Bendis’ Avengers: New Avengers #26-39/Annual #2

When I first got into comics, the Avengers were in an unusual spot. Civil War had just finished, leaving a divided community of superheroes in its wake. Between several different Avengers teams, the group to follow was Bendis’ street-level New Avengers. This group of heroes included very nontraditional members, such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Dr. Strange,Continue reading “Bendis’ Avengers: New Avengers #26-39/Annual #2”

Bendis’ Avengers: New Avengers #21-25

When I initially saw that volume five of Bendis’ New Avengers was purely a Civil War tie-in, I wasn’t interested. At the time, event tie-ins felt pretty unnecessary. If I wanted to read about the event, wouldn’t I just read the main Civil War series?

To me, this was the ultimate superhero battle againstContinue reading “Bendis’ Avengers: Secret War”

Bendis’ Avengers: The Pulse

I admit, during the time of its release, the Pulse completely flew under my radar. I barely heard anything about the series, other than that it had something to do with the Daily Bugle. If I was going to read about the Daily Bugle, I thought, why not just go read a Spider-Man comic? TheContinue reading “Bendis’ Avengers: The Pulse”

Bendis’ Avengers: Avengers Disassembled

When I first got into comics, there was one major writer on the Avengers at the time: Brian Michael Bendis. Over the course of eight years, Bendis crafted several epic tales that redefined Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, from Avengers Disassembled, to Secret War, to House of M, many other stories. Even when Bendis did not personallyContinue reading “Bendis’ Avengers: Avengers Disassembled”

Weekly Recommendation: Daredevil by Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev

Daredevil is a character with a lot of baggage. Matt Murdock suffers many tragedies, including being blinded as a child, losing his father to the mob, and constantly losing people he loves. Enduring so much pain is part of what makes Murdock relatable. Like any of us, Daredevil experiences the many hardships of life.
