The Avengers #35

   What's up with the future?

   DC has turned its whole line over to Future's End (about which I know naught and could care less), and now the Avengers have leaped forward eight months into the future.

   I'm not sure why this has happened, but the story has enough mystery and mayhem to keep it interesting as the reader tries to catch up on events.

   It's interesting that a baby has entered the picture (doesn't that take more than eight months to assemble?), and we get our first look at the new, hammer-less Thor.

   The art is nice, but it's provided by a small army of pencilers and inkers, so it's a bit of a mixed bag.

   But the story continues to sizzle as the sides are drawn between groups of Avengers - and SHIELD takes an active role in solving the problem.

  The final-page reveal certainly sparks interest. Writer Jonathan Hickman is molding a big, worlds-shattering tale here, loaded with surprises and unexpected turns.

   Great stuff!

Grade: A-

Thanks, Dwayne! I read the free comic that previewed "Future's End" and it left me cold - it just seemed to be swiping too hard from the classic X-Men "Days a Future Past" story. Maybe I'm wrong - but it just didn't appeal to me at all.
