Marvel Comics has done it again.They’ve misrepresented this volume by erroneously/misleadingly naming it. As every schoolboy knows, the Infinity crossover involves Thanos and his invasion of Earth, yet his malevolent, grinning mug is nowhere to be found in these pages.It’s like Waiting for Godot - (view spoiler)[Everyone knows that bastard never made an appearance either! (hide spoiler)]You have three different story lines vying for attention courtesy of Hickman and Spencer. I assume Spencer [...]
This Hickman run on Avengers is doing absolutely nothing for me.I only started it as a lead up to Secret Wars, but I was expecting at least something comprehensible out of it. And honestly, I have no idea what’s happening here. Bad enough that it’s a confusing story about a bunch of gleep-glops, but you’d think that at least I’d know the Avengers themselves. However, half the roster seems to be B level characters I don't know or care about it so it's turned into a real slog.
At this point, Hickman has been building up to something for so long that I've basically lost interest. It feels like he's buying time for the big crossover event, and at this point I'm bored. It was a chore for me to finish this volume, so I think I'm checking out at this point.
I really wanted to find a way to see this Hickman book (and Avengers series so far) as better than most of my fellow Shallow Comics Readers, who thought this was a waste of time and much worse than New Avengers. I couldn't do it. I kept putting this book down every time I got lost or bored, and never quite got around to getting an excited momentum while reading it. The early part is fan-ducking-tastic. Finally, someone who gets that in a team book, when across-the-globe threats emerge, you call [...]
Yet another case of the library only having Vol. 3 and not even having ordered 1 or 2! Yet, I read Thor Vol 2 the other day w/o 1 and it was great! So I took the chance hereBIG Mistake.This is so head scratching and confusing, I have no idea who the non Avenger Avengers are, who are all these cosmic types?Hyperion? Huh? Captain Universe??? REALLY?Gobbledygook about new evolution, dying world, eternal versus man, blah blah blah.Kinda like coming in after the halfway point in a Terry Gilliam movie [...]
This book is exactly what it is. A prelude.It shows too.Kindaelude(ie). That's the nice way of saying that this book was more or less a padded out volume that could have easily been condensed into 2 floppy's rather than the 6 that it consists of.The pictures and panels were still really exciting though. So thatsmething?Also, it had these guys; they were pretty cool. I am still digging this series - and I didn't hate this volume - and believe it or not I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on wh [...]
I feel like I just read three volumes of prelude with sprinkles of interesting and excellent art and tons of abstract nonsense. The story is about something to do with the Avengers doing cosmicy things, right?Ready for the payoff. Please let there be a payoff.
3.5This was a prelude to Infinity so it wasn't really mind blowing. As usual the art is fantastic though and I'm looking forward to getting into the meat of this series.
The title of this book says it all: It's a prelude. To be honest the issue's in this book could have been only two issues. I think the only thing that was stopping that from happening is Jonathan Hickman's need to make giant Omega-Level books. Either that or what seems to be a mandate set by both Marvel and DC: all stories must be at least 5 or 6 issues to fit into a nice trade. The storyline contained in the regular Avengers title, and the New Avengers, has been going on for what seems like for [...]
2.5 starsI seriously can't decide whether or not this is any good.Likeybe I'm just so stupid that the vast majority of this storyline is going over my head?I mean, I get it, but I just don'tt it, if you get what I'm saying?The story is sorta told in this dreamy/strange way, and I just cannot see the point of it.It's WEIRD! The whole thing is just fucking weird. I don'tWhatever.I'm gonna try to keep going, b/c I'm scared there's some huge payoff at the end of this arc, and I don't wanna miss out. [...]
Collects Avengers issues #12-17Spoiler-free review: This is still an enjoyable read, but every volume has been less enjoyable since Marvel NOW! started. It becomes clear by the end of this book that this is all set up for "Infinity," the huge Marvel event of 2013. Spoiler-filled review:Issue Twelve: Some kids were born in the Savage Lands due to Ex Nihilo’s origin bomb, and they are highly advanced humanoids. They don’t need to eat or breath to stay alive. Some of the Avengers try to teach t [...]
This is the third volume of the Marvel Now Avengers series, but you wouldn’t know it from the story. The first three volumes just blur together because, after the initial set-up, nothing ever moves forward. I feel like I have been running in place. The origin bombs are causing havoc on Earth and the Avengers are flying all over the planet putting out fires. Only, fighting it isn’t working and so far there’s no sciencing their way out of it either. Yet, the Avengers still “need to get big [...]
I have mixed feelings about this Hickman run on the Avengers. On the one hand, he’s really excellent at developing an atmosphere of impending doom and generally epic stakes. On the other hand, I can’t shake the idea that everything that goes on in this comic is complete gibberish; that this is all simply panel after panel of alien robots saying things at random interspersed with panoramic shots of various Avengers teams in super hero poses. Granted, this might be that its been a while since [...]
And we're still building here but we've done a better job of it here I think. Hyperion connects with the children from the Savage Land, which is sweet as Spiderman and Thor try to impart some essential knowledge to them in their own ways. We're leading up to the Infinity event here, obviously, and I'm thinking I really need to read New Avengers as well since the two series run parallel to each other. The mass of characters is getting a little bit shaky here - especially with the proper addition [...]
3.5 Stars. Definitely more cohesive than Volume 2, but we are still sorely lacking alot of answers. I understand Hickman's a big picture kind of writer, but 17 issues without any easily comprehended concepts is a bit much.Also, the big killer robot was dumb.
More like a 3.5. The buildup's not quite as good as the actual event but it's still a pretty strong book overall.
Heavy! Dialogue-driven, preachy and lacking the fun of many other Avengers' stories I have read.
Un libro puente, un salto de fe.En el próximo veremos si la espera ha valido la pena.
So, this volume is a little more cohesive than volume 2, but not by much. The events seem to cover stuff that happened in the first volume and rarely touch on anything from volume 2.There is the same problem with too many characters and not enough time to do them justice. My favourite section was when it focused more on Thor and Hyperion (you have to love his big golden corset diaper thing!).The artwork was good without being spectacular. Still not up to Frank Cho standards sadly.I really enjoye [...]
I guess I'll keep on reading along and pretend like I have any idea what is going on. I don't feel so stupid since other reviewers more familiar with the Marvel Universe also seem to be saying this run is sort of pointless.One thing I'm starting to discover, the whole oh no the world is under attack and we must save it trope is sort of boring.
glad I've got the prelude down ( the main one I wanted to read anyways ) INFINITY, here I come.
o que foi isso? sem graça demais
Meandering, but never boring.
2.5 stars Finally, the beginning comes to an end! Disappointingly, the third installment of the "Prelude to Infinity" ends almost in the same place where it began building an "Avengers World" worthy of defending the universe. Talk about circuitous. While this may be intentionally symbolic, in the midst of three volumes comprised of a mostly jumbled plot dense with characters and intricate backstories, it makes the time spent deciphering it all feel futile.Usually I try to provide a plot summary, [...]
The Avengers, spurred by Hyperion and Thor, spent time in the Savage Land mentoring the zebra children. The High Evolutionary nabbed a group of the kids to study, incurring the Avengers’ wrath. The Avengers rescued the kids and Thor and Hyperion wreaked some particular vengeance on the Evolutionary. Next, a mysterious signal began stirring up catastrophic problems at the various origin bomb sites. The Avengers tried to contain the problems while Hulk’s alter ego, Dr. Bruce Banner, worked on [...]
Hyperion and his relationship to his little Zebra-kids are what made this collection work for me. As a father myself, seeing Hyperion experience some of the same thoughts and emotions as myself was unexpected and rather rare. Kudos to Hickman for elevating Hyperion in my eyes, as Hyperion was somebody I was pretty impartial to as it was.But, after those two initial issues, I would have to agree with the majority of reviewers here on in that I too got lost in the storyline for a hot minute. Bein [...]
Here things started to go a bit off the rails. Hickman was trying to make this a truly Marvel wide sweeping epic, bringing in more and more players, and it just got confusing and rather bland, especially the A.I.M. bits. While I can sit back and see, in retrospect, the role A.I.M. played in his ultimate meta-plot their use here was head scratching, and the introduction of POD was pretty pointless. I'll blame George R.R. Martin for this, if authors think that laying in character after character a [...]
Definitely much better than volume 2. Really enjoyed Hyperion and Thor's monologues about what it means for them to be gods over the new creations and how they see themselves compared to their more mortal allies.It was also interesting to see the world evolve and the beginning of the Infinity Wars which are the center point of New Avengers (2013). We see that Tony is okay with blowing up other worlds as shown in the Illuminati and Bruce Banner and the others got their chance to shine in their re [...]
I don't think billions die screaming between panels in this collection, though at one point aeroplanes drop from the sky and nuclear power plants go pop all over the world, but the Avengers are shown engaged in boring old superhero activities such as saving people from danger, so let's assume nobody dies and everybody lives, though one supposes future volumes will make up for it. Anywhoo, Thor and the Sentry raise some strange genetically engineered children in a way that is almost but not quite [...]
