Siege No. 2

Published by Marvel Comics. Written by Brian Michael Bendis. Pencils by Olivier Coipel. Inks by Mark Morales.

The Deal: Marvel unveils the second issue of its latest blockbuster limited series, featuring a whole bunch of Avengers, Asgardians, and big-time super villains.

The Verdict: I don't care what anybody says ... hate on Bendis all you want, but this is a great comic book. It's a great Avengers story. As a matter of fact, years from now, folks will look at this as a classic Avengers story. It's tight — no decompression here — fast-paced, action-packed, and filled with a lot of ultra-cool moments. Most writers don't get a chance to put a cap on such a long-form story, but you gotta give it up to Bendis and Marvel for hanging in long enough to wrap things up. And here's my last word on the book: If you only have $4 to spend on comics this week, buy Siege No. 2. There I said it.
