Comics: 24th December 2013

Only one out this week, the Christmas period affecting releases (and my ability to hold down food, apparently).

- Avengers #24
- Written by Jonathan Hickman
- Art by Esad Ribic, Salvador Larroca, Mike Deodato & Butch Guice

This is the cross-over point from the last story to the new one. Everyone is at Avengers Tower having a well deserved barbecue to celebrate their big victory over Thanos. It's a great scene that is a welcomed break from all the recent drama. Thor screaming "Bring forth the pies!" needs to be a thing.

The revelry is cut short as our next problem rears its ugly head in the form of a (check the title) rogue planet on collision course with the earth. Luckily, future-Iron Man is on hand to help out. That's right folks, Marvel's year of time-travel isn't over quite yet! They just snook this one in under the wire.

The art is generally good but whoever (out of the long list above) drew Hawkeye on page 21 needs to do some reference work in the future because OH MAN did they fuck-up how to draw someone holding a bow and arrow. Yikes!
