The Avengers #2

   Two issues in and the latest version of The Avengers is off to a solid cosmic-flavored start.

   This story arc is, of course, all about putting the team together, and they have a massive problem to face.

   To be exact, something is killing the titanic, incredibly powerful space aliens known as the Celestials - and now that "something" is threatening the Earth!

   That brings the "Big Three" back together - Captain America, Iron Man and Thor - adds in some former Avengers - Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk - and a new fiery addition, the Ghost Rider.

   The focus is on action and adventure, and it's a great jumping-on spot for fans of the team. 

   The script by Jason Aaron is sharp and funny, and the art by Ed McGuinness, Mark Morales and Jay Leisten is big and bold and a blast throughout.

   Highly recommended!
