New Avengers Illuminati #4

$4.00
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS & BRIAN REED Pencils and Cover by JIM CHEUNG
They have faced the Skrull empire, the Hulk, the Sentry, the Infinity Gems and the Beyonder... but now the secret society of Marvel is faced with the one thing too much for even them... and the cover to this issue says it all. Oh, and there's this guy named Marvel Boy who declared war on the Earth.

"The main problem with doing a series that reinterprets old Marvel events is you have to make certain you ACTUALLY READ THE STUFF YOU'RE BASING IT ON. To wit: Grant Morrison's Marvel Boy COMES FROM A DIFFERENT REALITY than the Illuminati. So he doesn't know what the Marvel Universe Kree Empire or Captain Marvel look like. WHICH TOTALLY RUINS THE STORY BENDIS AND REED ARE GOING FOR. So, boo to that. Also, nice job on taking a nuanced, complicated character and dulling him down into a cross between Chase from Runaways and Draco Malfoy. Double boo. It's stuff like this that makes me wish other writers would just leave Morrison characters alone, if this is all they're getting out of them. Oh, and triple boo to a cover that sets up the first four pages, which are completely disconnected from the main story. Seriously, the awesome segway they came up with was “Okay, moving on.” Give these men Pulitzers!"

THIS BOOK GETS 4 GRAHAMS OUT OF 10
