All-New All-Different Avengers #6

   This series just keeps getting better.

   From the awesome Alex Ross cover (playing tribute to a classic cover by the great John Buscema) to a fast and furious - and fun - story, this one never slows down.

   The All-New All-Different Avengers step into Doctor Who territory here with a story that has fun with its time-travel backdrop, and the heroes get to show how smart they are.

   (As I've said many times, I love it when heroes win by being smart, rather than just punching the bad guy in the mush.)

   (Although there's a lot of that in here, too.)

   Writer Mark Waid continues to craft entertaining stories that make great use of the team format, giving us different characters who interact and work together to take down a major bad guy.

   I like Mahmud Asrar's art a lot, with lots of dynamic action staged - and some nice quiet moments, too.

   Of the Avengers books I've read so far (and they are a multitude), this one is the cream that rises to the top.

Grade: A-
