Hickman has been busily working away creating the groundbreaking Manhattan Projects and East of West for Image, but he returns to more mainstream comics with Marvel’s New Avengers. In this second volume, he brings back the gargantuan titan Thanos, who is searching for infinity gems in this Marvel crossover event. The Illuminati (Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Reed Richards, Black Bolt, Namor, Black Panther, and Beast) have their hands full—not only are they tasked with saving the Marvel universe but they also need to prevent the destruction of the entire multiverse. Worlds are literally colliding as Thanos wreaks havoc, and the Illuminati are the only ones with the brainpower to save the day. As is typical for comics with Hickman at the helm, it’s smart and wordy and requires readers to pay close attention. Meanwhile, Deodato maintains vivid consistency in his coloring and line work over the entire collection. Hailed in comic circles as a standout in the entire Avengers universe, this series continues to be perfect for deep-rooted Marvel fans. --Ben Spanner
