Overrall a good, well visualised story that continues on from the Secret Invasion stories (vols. 8&9), heading into Norman Osborn's Dark Reign as the New Avengers plot to take on Osborn's psycopathic Dark Avengers. Recommended if you're following the Marvel universe at the moment.

As for the art, the various artists have different styles and definitely each effect the mood in different ways, yet somehow it they all fit in nicely with Bendis's writing.
(One chapter is especially neat, with one or two pages written from the perspective of each of the Avengers, and drawn by the different artists currently handling those characters in other books)
Be warned that this particular book (Vol 10) is not a comprehensive story arc for new readers to jump in on, but is a worthy continuation of the afore-mentioned books. Interested readers should start with Avengers Disassembled and on to the intervening Bendis books of the past couple of years, as well as current parallel titles, to get the most out of this book.
Forgive my bad and sloppy writing. I hope you at least have an idea what I’m talking about. I’m sure many of you know all this better than I do. I’m writing this for the kids and men and women who are just finding their “in” with comics.
This was a great way to begin the "Dark Reign" era for the Avengers, in which Norman Osborne (the former Green Goblin) has his own team of Avengers under the government umbrella and the New Avengers are on the run from the law. We see the New Avengers reassembling after the events of Secret Invasion with leftover trust issues still lingering while they figure out what comes next, and at least one moment that literally made me laugh out loud when the New Avengers take a look at the roster of Osborne's Avengers when they make a TV appearance.
Most of this story deals with Luke Cage going to great lengths to get his daughter back from the Skrull who kidnapped her at the end of Secret Invasion. Coming from someone who has grown to really love the character through his appearances in the Daredevil books from Bendis and Ed Burbaker as well as New Avengers, I liked seeing this side of Cage.
