So, I’ve reached a point when I can afford to largen my pull list so at the moment I’m going through all the biggest Marvel and DC comics and reading one (Jump-on-point) issue and deciding whether or not to continue and if I’d reccomend it.
So, now you know.
AJ Decider #10: Avengers Arena (Marvel Comics)
I would be lying if I said I loved this comic from the moment it was announced, in fact I was among those who disliked it from the second the title got announced. That said, when issue #1 hit the shelves, I (like most NOW titles) picked up #1 and regretted all that time spent negatively thinking about a brilliant comic. Ever since #1 the story has been gripping, the tales have been serious, the stakes have been real and the characters have been written like Hopeless was writing for his life, which is good as his characters are.
So will I continue yo pull it?
Of course, I’m here until the end!
But would I reccomend it to others?
- I know the concept is frightening but if you like good comics then yet, yes I would.
- I was never strong on Walker’s art back on T-Bolts but it is perfectly suited for this series.
- Don’t be put off by the concept, try the comic itself and then decide!
If you dont want to pull the monthly, Avengers Arena v1: Kill or Die is available now to decide for yourself!
If you’re waiting for AJ Decider #6-9, they are Aquaman, which I plan to try come September, Astonishing X-Men which I do have an issue to read but not got around to yet, Avengers which is the same as Astonishing and Avengers AI which has yet to begin.
