Comic Book A Day – Day 52 – New Avengers #30 (2012)

New Avengers 30 Review

Daredevil says “Arrgh my knees are glues to your backs!!!”

While not quite as awesome as Uncanny X-men #18 (reviewed here yesterday), New Avengers #30 is decent in its own right and follows the same general idea.  This comic happens right after Avengers Vs. X-Men # 11 and a main X-Men player is now in custody and riding in the back of an armored truck with Luke Cage and Daredevil (with The Thing and Mockingbird up front driving).

While there is a bit of action in this comic, it really centers around a conversation between Daredevil and Luke Cage about his family life, which leads Cage to a drastic decision and he decides to become a woman.  OK, not really, but maybe that”s an Elseworlds story for another time.

While I like seeing action in comics, that sort of what movies are for.  What I really like seeing in comics is the interaction and dialogue between characters and this issue is chock full o” that.

I”m giving New Avengers #30 4 out of 6 possible Aarons.  If you”re into comics check it out, if you”re not why are you reading a comic book website?
