This makes me want to just, pick up my drawing tool and art things.
Seems like ol’ Hawkeye is getting around these days. Teacher at the Avengers Academy and leader of the Secret Avengers? Not doubting Cliff’s experience, here, but I think they just needed a buzz-cut marine to replace Steve Rogers after his return to the Captain America cowl. Perhaps this was also a move to drum up some excitement for the Avengers movie.
Good cover, good colors, few complaints. I don’t like Beast’s appearance, because the goggles look hokey and I thought it was clear that Hank was brought in for his brains, not his brawn. Now that Warren Ellis is off the book, it’ll be interesting to see how Rick Remender (Punisher) uses him.
Black Widow’s hair looks like a Chia Pet, and Valkyrie seems to be stepped down a little from the beefed-up warrior maiden we’ve seen in this title and Thunderbolts.
Captain Britain will be an interesting addition to the team: his face in the first panel of the last page is priceless.
I DEFINITELY wouldn’t judge by the cover…but still…hmm…I was thinking of cutting back on this after Warren Ellis left but….dammit…
