New Avengers #10

   Sadly, I'm reviewing this issue of New Avengers out of order - it should have been written before this week's issue of Infinity, since this adventure falls before that one.

   Ah well, let's push on.

   Despite having the smallest cast, this branch of the Infinity series (which also runs through The Avengers, natch) is perhaps the most tangled, since it includes severe tension between members of the team (as the Black Panther's Wakanda and Namor's Atlantis are at war), the threat of Thanos looming over the Earth (and Black Bolt's Inhumans in particular), attacks by Thanos' powerful Black Order, and the threat of another parallel Earth incursion that could destroy our Earth.

   Whew! It's a lot to absorb, but it provides a high-stakes drama.

   It's the usual excellence from writer Jonathan Hickman, with incredible art by Mike Deodato.

   This series is really walking the cosmic high wire, and it's amazing to watch - and a blast to read.

   Highly recommended!

Grade: A
