The Avengers #30

Getting back on track...

As the Avengers vs. X-Men series winds down, I have to admit I've lost the chronology of events therein.

For example, Spider-Woman and Hawkeye were both prisoners of the Phoenix Force - which has possessed a couple of X-Men - but with this issue, both are back on duty for the Avengers, covering "normal" Avengers business while the big guns take on the cosmic menaces.

It's all an excuse for a fun episode of "The Bickersons," as the two (who are dating) fight for their lives while arguing about their relationship.

It's a fun, fast-paced, done-in-one issue that includes some excellent art by the legendary Walter Simonson (with Scott Hanna inking) - it's just as free-wheeling and high-spirited as the script by Brian Bendis.

So a nice relief from the heavy-duty doings in the maxi-series, as it's all in good fun.

Grade: B+
