NEWAVN2013009_DC11_LRNEW AVENGERS #9 (Hickman, Deodato)

Hickman’s script and storytelling is strong, and Mike Deodato’s art more than keeps pace. Deodato nails the epic action moments and all the subtle character moments. From devilish grins from the cunning Namor to a menacing titan addressing his Generals. Deodato’s inking is fantastic in this issue, giving his subjects crisp, clean lines that fit the overarching style of the Infinity event very well, rivaling the superb art from Jim Cheung in Infinity #1. His layouts are dynamic and visually appealing and the angles at which he profiles the characters in this issue convey the drama of the storyline very well. Frank Martin’s colour work highlights all of Deodato’s strength and amplifies all of the action in this issue beautifully. Deodato and Martin are in obvious sync and as readers we reap the rewards of their visual talents.

New Avengers #9 is a stellar issue in what has been a fantastic event so far. Hickman is wasting no time increasing the stakes and the payoff of several storylines that started 9 months ago are finally in readers’ hands. Anyone reading Infinity must read this issue.

CAPMARV2012015_DC11_LRCAPTAIN MARVEL #15 (DeConnick, Van Meter, Olliffe)

Readers cueing in for Infinity will have no difficulty stepping into Captain Marvel’s story, because she herself is largely unaware of it and DeConnick cleverly uses that to build the setting and give a uniquely uncomfortable tone to the issue that gives its end a particularly strong jolt. Thrown right into the ongoing action, #15 is more than just a tipped hat to the event, and still has another issue in its two part tie-in to go, something even new readers are going to want to grab.
