Intense!

If this book got more nerve-wracking, more gut-wrenching, more daring in its telling of a triangular tale, I don’t think my ever-lovin’ blue eyes could stand it.

Under the pen of writer Rick Remender, Uncanny Avengers is a virtual rollercoaster of angst, characterization, continuity and unbelievable adventure. And death (or at least its believable semblance). Gone are Rogue, Wonder Man and the Scarlet Witch, and the Unity Squad is about as un-unified as the Avengers who started it all, maybe more.

I really do not know where to turn in my admiration for Remender. Issue #15’s tale picks right up after the shocking ending (this book has had more than a few of those, y’know) of last ish and spins our Assemblers every which way, with the Apocalypse Twins and the very interesting machinations of Kang in the backgrouond.

Where this is headed, I cannot guess, but I am loving it!

Remender takes past Marvel continuity and replants it in seeds along this book’s way, letting them reach fruition right when it matters. And it is that method #15 celebrates most.

Of course, a lot of praise also to Steve McNiven, his Greek chorus of inkers and the ever-talented palette of Laura Martin for keeping up with Remender’s powerful script. And how!

If I want to get a friend interested in comics again, all I have to do is show them a copy of Uncanny Avengers #15 (and do a little ‘splainin’). Great read!
