[personal profile] stubbleupdate posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Now that I'm on holiday, I get a chance to catch up on my reading. One things that I've always wanted to read is Avengers: Disassembled, as House of M and New Avengers mark the beginning of my experience with current Marvel books. I had the outline of the story in my head and knew all of the beats (NOT LIKE THIS!), but I hadn't actually read it for myself.



It's very Bendis-y. And not in the good way. It's very much like he's taken an idea, and it's a good idea. He's taken the idea that the Avengers, one day, have a very bad day. And he's taken this idea, that the Avengers, one day, have a very bad day and he's put it into the mouths of all his characters. This idea, about this very bad day, just comes out in the same way by very different characters.
As bad as some artists are for only having one face that they can draw, Bendis sometimes gets quite bad at only having one voice.
And the story itself feels like Bendis had a bunch of ideas that he wanted to use, but was told that he had to get them all done within the next four issues, so he just smashed everything in together.


However, Disassembled did give us Tony Harris drawing Iron Man, so it's not all bad
