Avengers #43

   It’s amazing that this series manages to keep building the pressure, balancing several world-threatening menaces with the growing likelihood of world-wide destruction.

   The danger this time around is from a vast armada of alien ships. The threat Earth poses to all existence has led to this attack - so what can the Avengers (even all of the Avengers teams) do to protect the Earth?

   That’s all part of the fun, of course. And the Secret Wars story (whatever shape that’s going to take) is bearing down on us, too.

   The caveat, as always, is that this series is tough to jump in on now - the story is bringing together numerous threads from the last three years worth of adventures - including rogue planets, secret plots, massive science fiction-based constructions, cross-dimension invasions and much more.

    It's a lot to keep up with, but writer Jonathan Hickman is weaving it together with amazing skill. I'm running out of superlatives for this series.

   Fans will be talking about this one for years to come!
