After you’re done with the Infinity storyline, hop right on over to Avengers Assemble #21, for that matter I’d even pick up issue 20, where the repercussions of the Inhumans Terrigen bomb are starting to appear. This issue finds Spider-Girl trying to get the Avengers attention, but no one will listen because she’s just a kid. The news though could be of dire importance as two of the Inhuman cocoons have been stolen. Kelly Sue DeConnick delivers some great lines in this scene and really brings to life the characters she’s working with. She flat out writes some of the best dialogue in the business. I was excited to see the inclusion of Spider-Girl and was not disappointed. The story teams her with Spider-Woman and Black Widow, the team lady spiders, as Spider-Girl puts it.
Along with great characters, Deconnick gives us a great action sequence that artist Matteo Buffagni does an excellent job with. Team Lady Spiders breaks into an AIM lab and has ten seconds to take out as many guards and scientists as they can. Two pages of great panel layouts from Buffagni and terrific coloring from Nolan Woodard! I really enjoyed Buffagni’s artwork in this issue, nice perspectives, great faces and the action is very easy to follow. Woodard’s colors make Buffagni’s art work just pop. These two artists combined to give us a beautiful looking comic. Artist Jorge Molina cover is simply stunning also!
I forgot this book on my Wednesday haul and thankfully was able to still get a copy when I went back. This is a book not to be missed. Action, humor, great artwork, great characters, what’s not to love! Go buy it!
