Avengers Assemble Volume 5 HC: v. 5 by Alan Davis
Volume 5 of the Avengers Assembled series is an awesome jaw-dropping ride, dominated by the Kang Dynasty story-arch. It is pre-disassembled Avengers at their best. The plot starts a bit slowly and almost disjointedly, but soon kicks into high gear with Kang trying to conquer the world. The issue 'There are no Words' is a true masterpiece with enormic action and lasting consequences. The writing may not be as 'slick'(for want of a better expression) as Bendis era Avengers, but in my opinion it is just as good, timeless, with fantastic epic feeling and very complex story-lines. The art is absolutely first rate as well. You do need to know your Avengers characters to truely enjoy this… Read more
The Sentry TPB (Marvel Knights) by Jae Lee

The Sentry. Some people love him, some people hate him. Personaly I've always really enjoyed the character, and I didn't at all mind Bendis' writing of him. But it is Jenkins who by far writes the best Sentry, the true Sentry. This unique, original and compeling graphic novel is one of the finest I've ever read. It's a brilliant story, only rivaled by the fantastic, edgey, atmospheric art work. The individual issues featuring Spiderman, X-Men etc do slow the plot down a wee bit, but overall, the highly imaginative story of this interesting and complex character make this truely a gem. Some say that Sentry is Marvel's ripoff of Superman, that seems ridiculous once you have read this… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic story, 13 Oct 2011
Civil War is an epic story in both scope and artistic excellence. it is a rollercoaster of a story that I find impossible to put down. The oversized hardcover of this story is a wonderful way to enjoy it, and it looks great on disply. It is worth getting for the graphic novel itself. The extras are just that, they're extras- I found them interesting, but far from worthy enough to make me buy the hardcover just in themselves. The story is reason enough to buy the hardcover. The extras just happend to be there as well. Enjoy the extras, but it is the epic story and brilliant art that has to be the reason for buying this hardcover version of this story. Civil War changed everthing in… Read more
