New Avengers (2013) #8 Review

newavengers2013#8 cover“LORDS OF CHAOS”

As casualties pile up in the ongoing war between Wakanda and Atlantis, an Illuminati member is forced to make a hard choice.

An Inhuman learns of the Illuminati’s plans.

Prelude to INFINITY: Everything falls apart.

The Good

Art- Mike Deodato is on art duty and everything is gorgeous! The scantily clad queen Medusa was every teen boy’s wet dream with her J-lo derriere, silicone like breasts and well toned and defined mid section.

Cover- This month we are treated to Black Bolt and the Inhuman Royal Family on a pale purple background merged with Black Bolt’s brother.

Holy $hit- So um…..the living tribunal was found dead by Iron man in space along with the Watcher? Who is the living tribunal you ask? Well! The living tribunal is arguably the second most powerful being in the marvel multiverse, surpassing Galactus, Eternity, death and even infinity. WTF could kill such a being? My briefs are wet with the possibilities.  newavengers2013#8 1

Infinity begins- So at the end of this issue we have Thanos’ armada arriving on Earth and placing his generals at key locations. Wakanda, Jean Grey School, Atlantis and the Sanctum Sanctorum, It’s literally about to go down in a major way!  I’m looking very forward to the Infinity event for allot of reasons and this issue wets my whistle and tingles my spin in many ways.

Black Swan- This chick is biding her time in style. Books to read and alliances being made…what is this chick up to really?

Namor & T’challa- These two one time friends shared a powerful moment this issue, T’challa really is a big ole softie at heart as he

War- Well since Wakanda is one the sites being specifically targeted by Thanos forces Wakanda and Shuri will get time in the limelight once more. Considering Doomwar and Avengers Vs X-men cost Wakanda dearly I’m hopeful Hickman can at least make them worthy of respect once more like back in Secret Invasion.

Dora Milaje- My beautiful bald she warriors how I’ve missed thee!

The Bad

Say what- I have no idea what Black Bolt showed Medusa. Is he planning on moving his kingdom to another dimension? This may be one of those Hickman moments that you can’t “get” until the end of the arc.

Hmm- Hopefully Hickman doesn’t screw over Wakanda than it already has been in Avengers Vs X-men and Doomwar.

Action- None this issue.

The Ugly

One of the most fascinating books on the shelves teetering a fine line between superheroics and science fiction Hickman sets up a few interesting things we can understand this issue and a few things we will be scratching our heads about later.
