Book Review: Heroic Age

Heroic AgeHeroic Age by Brian Michael Bendis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 Witness the Marvel Universe triumph over its greatest challenges ever as the Heroic Age ignites! Still lurking in the shadows are forces of evil and cosmic-level threats-but a new spirit of hope, courage and the selfl essness at theheart of heroism will rise up. The most extraordinary taleswill be told in the Heroic Age of the Marvel Universe. From the tone of the storylines, to the stunning art, the Heroic Ageushers in a dramatic new vision of the Marvel Universe. Featuring Marvel's most elite characters-including IronMan, Captain America, Thor, the Avengers and more-as they embark on bold new adventures, this volume is the perfect jumping-on point for the Heroic Age.

This was just little snippets of different story lines, with no real story arc to connect them all together. Some things I really liked a lot, and will look for more in those series, like Avengers Academy and The Incredible Hercules, The New Prince of Power. I also liked the Hawkeye and Mockingbird story, which I can't find a continuation of at my library.

On the other hand, there were some really bad ones. I was bored at times, which doesn't usually happen for me with Marvel comics. All in all, I don't think I'd necessarily recommend this, but there was definitely some good to be found here.
