5.0 out of 5 stars As Good as the Last Two 18 Feb 2010
The third 'Over-Sized Hardcover' New Avengers collection following New Avengers Volume 1 HC: v. 1 and New Avengers: v. 2 (New Avengers). This one collects the following:

New Avengers #21-23
New Avengers: Illuminati
Civil War: The Confession
Civil War: The Initiative

It's worth noting that issues #21-25 are also collected in the paperback New Avengers: Civil War v. 5 (New Avengers) but that book is missing the three extra comics and, being 'regular size' has smaller pages. As with the previous volumes this is the best way to collect New Avengers, you get more material at a higher quality, the only downside is that you have to wait longer for them to be released.

There's little point in buying this book if you haven't read the first two in the series but if you have then this one progresses the story and maintains the quality of previous installments. Plot-wise this book covers the 'Civil War' storyline that ran through much of the Marvel universe in 2006-2007 which involved a lot of shake-ups to the team as the New Avengers become an underground and 'unofficial' Avengers team.

If you want to follow the 'official' team then I recommend the first hardcover collection:

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for continuity 3 Mar 2014
By Nariman
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a largely dark book with art by Leniil Yu, made even darker by them employing the wrong inker. This book feels like it is simply a link between two other volumes but "The Confession" by Bendis raised it from okay to good. Some excellent prose in there. Again, this is a volume worth having if you want to collect The New Avengers in book form and you can get it at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 3rd Volume 1 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have bought and read the first 2 volumes and now I have just completed the third and I happen to like this one the most. The art is great except for Howard Chaykin work which is truly terrible, but thankfully his contribution is fairly small. All the other artist involved with this volume are excellent especially Leinil Yu's work which stands out from the rest. This volume concentrates on the civil war story-arc and sets up 'Secret Invasion' perfectly.

Luke Cage, Wolverine, Captain America Iron Fist, Spiderman, Dr Strange, Ronin and Spider Woman make up the renegade Avengers and you cant help but root for them in their game of cat-and-mouse with the Government-backed Avengers which including Iron Man, Sentry, Ares, Ms Marvel and Wonder Man. I have read the Civil War graphic novel, which was ok, but this is far more interesting.

The over-sized, hard-cover volumes are the best way to read this great era in the Avengers story. Michael Bendis' writing is very good and I am at a loss why the man gets so much stick. This is a brilliant volume but it is essential you buy and read the first 2 volumes first. Make sure you buy the oversized version only; if it doesnt say "oversized" in the description; check the product details ...... this will state the dimensions to be around 28 cm high and have around 300-400 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense and sometimes shocking follow-up to Vol2. 20 Feb 2014
By Jem - Published on Amazon.com
I read the first two collected volumes of the New Avengers (post-Avengers Disassembled) and thought they were excellent compilations with strong storytelling. I was especially happy to see Spider-Woman, who I had never read before, take a leading role. I stopped after volume 2 in order to read the Civil War crossover event and related tie-ins. As a result, a little more than half of this collection is duplicate material also found in Civil War: Avengers.

People who are only reading the New Avengers, and not the events, may have a bit of difficulty following the first half of the book. The editors include more than one recap page to try and orient readers, but it's not the complete picture. However, if you've at least read the main Civil War event and preferably Disassembled as well, the story flows just fine. The book opens with the Illuminati one-shot wherein Stark intuits how passage of the Registration Act will come about. Thereafter, the book jumps from one Avenger to another showing how they respond to the law, until we get to the Confession. There's a lot of action and some heartrending scenes throughout. As I said, all of this material is also found in the tie-in. The benefit to also reading this book is seeing the action through the lens of the team. The first two volumes have the team dealing with the massive escape from The Raft supervillain prison and discovering something is deeply wrong with SHIELD and Hydra. Civil War shifts the focus from the "bigger picture" and this volume pulls it back in.

After The Confession, the book had new material I hadn't read before. Much of it will obviously lead into the next crossover event, Secret Invasion. The first story concerns Hawkeye, who was killed by The Scarlet Witch in Disassembled, then brought back in this new reality - fully aware of what happened. He goes on the hunt for Wanda. Meanwhile, Luke Cage realizes that something larger is at work with not only SHIELD and Hydra, but also the prison escape and even Registration. Stark has supposedly won the Civil War, with Captain America's surrender, but this small group of rebels refuses to give in. In Volume 2, the New Avengers traveled to Japan after the Silver Samurai. A mysterious hero called Ronin went along in Daredevil's place, and then disappears. Here, we learn who Ronin is when the hero calls on Matt and the Avengers for help escaping The Hand. The battle with the Hand overlaps with a confrontation with Stark and his hero squad. The action is fast-paced and incredibly exciting as Dr. Strange finally gets directly involved. And the battle with The Hand has a shocking conclusion.

Overall, despite much of this being duplicate material, I found this to be an excellent collection. The Hawkeye storyline was particularly moving and the battles at the end kept me on the edge of my seat while reading. Highly recommended!

... that this run is awesome. I picked up the first volume of New Avengers and loved it but found the next 3 to be not so enjoyable but this book turned it all back around. Fantastic artwork with a story that was fun to read and left me wanting more all in a very high quality book, I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 1 April 2009
By James Lumsden - Published on Amazon.com
I give this book full grades based upon the Confession chapter alone. Iron Man's heart-breaking admission to the body of his friend, Steve Rogers, is one of the best written, most touching pieces that I have had the fortune of reading. The Hawkeye chapter, as well, was just beautiful: the art and the story. Some of the artwork in the civil war portion is hit and miss (Captain America I am talking to you), but most stories are well developed and expertly drawn. I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Compilation comic 21 Jun 2011
By danny boy - Published on Amazon.com
For the uninitiated reader, this comic will only confuse. Don't expect a running plot.

This comic appears to be a compilation of sub-plots all relating to the New Avengers and some on-going cataclysmic events Civil War. Various artists are featured with jarring disconnect in their styles. I think this is a comic's companion to someone reading a running series on the New Avengers to give themselves a foretaste of what's happening in other parts of the Marvel Universe (and what issues they are missing...:)).
