Avengers #26 Review

Evil Avengers from another world, I'm interested!

The Good

I love alternate reality takes on familiar characters and we get plenty of that here. The design of the "Bad" Avengers is very reminiscent of the 70's era characters we all know and love, which is the look I prefer and wish they would incorporate into the real Avengers. The cover art is classic Marvel and I wish more artist would use this Marvel Style for their cover art. Hickman does a great job writing this book and I look forward to reading more of his work on this series.

The Not So Good

What the heck is going on? If you are like me, you missed the last Avengers issue and have no idea what is going on. There is a recap page, but it does the job of getting you up to speed very poorly. Another nagging point with me is the huge cast of characters, which keeps the presence of several interesting characters, Hyperion in particular, from getting the substantial spotlight they deserve.

The Bottom Line

If you read the last issue then I highly recommend this book. It is very well written, has good art, and features an intriguing group of alternate reality Avengers. If you did not pick up the last issue, well do that first. If you like that book then I suggest you pick this one up as well. If not for the poor recap page this could have been a 5 star book.
