Bendis is a writer who evokes mixed emotions. Some see him as a genius whilst others consider him little more than a hack.

Dissassembled, like Bendis himself, has also garnered such mixed reviews but contrary to the other reviewers here I actually consider it not only to be some of Bendis best work but also one of the best Avengers tales period.

Dissassembled was the last Marvel comic that literally blew me away - the hits come thick and fast and leave the reader not quite able to believe what theyve just seen. The action is stellar and finchs art is top quality as you might expect.

Whats more Dissassembled is an absolutely essential 'gateway' book into the Marvel universe - being the catalyst for just about every major story that has been published since, including House of M, Decimation, Civil War and now Secret Invasion.

In fact in light of Secret Invasion, Dissassembled has taken on an even more essential place in the history of the Marvel universe and becomes even more significant and interesting a read now than it was when it was first released. The very fact that there are skrulls hidden within its pages (yeah, I missed them first time too!) makes one appreciate just what a grand and long term vision Bendis had developed for the future of the Marvel universe, and whilst some of the stories that followed may have dissappointed it is my opinion that Dissassembled does not.

Well I'm sitting bored at home and have decided to review some of the tpbs I've read in the last year or so.

The key to this is not necessarily within this story but where it leads. From this comes Secret War, House of M, Civil War, Secret Invasion ect

Also where it comes from, you could argue it has its roots in 1960s marvel tales such as the first Brotherhood of Evil Mutants but more clearly in the 1980s West Coast Avengers tales.

As a piece in of itself it is just winding up the old avengers, sad though that is, (my fav ever avengers comic was no15) it did pave the way for the new avengers, which has been a pretty special change of pace.

Its worth getting primarily as an intro to the last few years shifts in the marvel universe with a bridge to what had happened before.

In of itself it is not the greatest piece you will ever read but without it you may get confused by the limitless references back to in in other titles.

Format: Paperback
The story running through issues #500-503 of the Avengers (from 2004) is collected, along with `Avengers Finale', as Avengers: Disassembled TPB (Graphic Novel Pb). This is the story that brought the original run of the Avengers to a close. It is excellently written and superbly illustrated. However, reading it for the first time in 2013, it is hard to judge if the story is the culmination of preceding events or whether it came out of nowhere, and the causes retrofitted to make it plausible. Since the author has been writing the Avengers ever since, I will give him the benefit of the doubt, and a full 5 stars. I started reading the Avengers in the Lee and Kirby days, but gave up somewhere in the 1980s, so the stories immediately preceding this volume are unknown to me. I have, courtesy of my local libraries, caught up with much of the history following this volume though. Basically, the story begins with the apparently no-longer dead Jack of Hearts appearing at the gates of the Avengers Mansion, and exploding in the faces of the team-members who go out to meet him, followed by the Vision, under the control of an unknown force, crashing a Quinjet on the Mansion, and launching an apparent Ultron-inspired attack, all of which leads to the destruction of the Vision and death and serious injury for several team-mates. The subsequent issue sees the She-Hulk driven into a rampage mode, and the assembling of the entire former Avengers membership to face the unfolding crisis, which involves a Kree invasion and the death of another member of the team. The final issue sees Doctor Strange appearing to reveal the secret source of these attacks.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Brian Michael Bendis has a good reputation in comics. Powers is considered to be brilliant and what I've read is very good. But the man's strength is in characters' voices and realistic sounding dialogue, not in plotting. And in a big action book like Avengers the plot is very important. So sadly, in what should have been a book that revitalised the Avengers (who have been overshadowed by reimagined versions of themselves in the Ultimates which is far superior to this) what we get is characters standing around and talking a lot. They do little except react very slowly to each illogical plot twist and wait for another character to deliver the answer to the mystery and defeat the villain in a deus ex machina ending. This is not a good book to become acquainted with the Avengers.

When people talk about the graphic novels that changed Marvel, they tend to talk about House of M, Civil war or even Secret Invasion. They have forgotten how it all really started. And it started right here.
Avengers Dissembled is a short, snappy book fuelled by action and explosions, with a good story line to escort it along the way. Like any good story, it has you guessing the true nature of the attacks right up until the very end. Definitely the starting point if you're planning on collecting the modern Marvel stories.
