  • The New Avengers, vol 2 #30 – Review

    This has been a long time coming. No, not this review, but the lesson that the Avengers are taught this issue. And yes, this review has also has been a long time coming as well. I wanted to group this with the final AvX issue so we can finally…

  • The New Avengers, vol 2 #29 – Review

    Who is Keyser Soze? He’s not a member of the Illuminati, but for some reason I was thinking of the movie The Usual Suspects while getting this review up. I should probably have made a nice Usual Suspects movie poster using the heads of the Illuminati members, but I…

  • The New Avengers, vol 2 #28 – Review

    Whoa, (said in your best Keanu-Reeves-in-the-Matrix-like voice) Spider-Man hasn’t been present in any of my Avengers titles recently. Sad face. But this Shyamalan-like tale from Bendis was still pretty good without Spidey. We’re talking Sixth Sense Shyamalan.. not The Happening or Lady in the Water Shyamalan. So despite Spidey’s…

  • The New Avengers, vol 2 #25-#27 – Review

    I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. That’s a quote from Futurama’s Professor Farnsworth, as well as a popular internet meme. But it could also very well be what Fongji, the ancient Iron Fist who bonded with the Phoenix Force, said at the end of her little…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #24 – Review

    Avengers Assemb—, I’m sorry, I just don’t have the drive to finish that rallying cry these days. The Avengers should be on the top of the world right now. They’re starring in this summer’s most anticipated movie, have a popular cartoon show, but I can’t support their fight with…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #23 – Review

    Brace yourself. The summer event is coming. I decided to swap the order of my New Avengers review and the final part of Avengers X-Sanction so we can put the H.A.M.M.E.R. wars behind us before I cover the big Avengers vs. X-Men event for you guys. Over the next…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #22 – Review

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody! The day that the heroic, green giant known as St. Patrick battled the evil forces of the Multi-headed Snake Monster out of Ireland. And then everybody dranketh from the fountain of Guinness. So much so, that they started seeing little Leprechauns running around and…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #21 – Review

    Hey reader. Feels like it’s been forever since I’ve posted a review for you guys. There’s also been ten other reviews for comics or shows since my last one. I must be slowing down. I haven’t even had a chance to catch up on all those reviews, or my…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #20 – Review

    One year! Hooray. Sunday marked my one year anniversary of my first review on the Crawlspace, so please pardon me a minute while I reflect on that. That’s pretty much longer than any relationship I have been in. According to Google, the Crawlspace overtook the Facebooks as my most visited…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #19 – Review

    The night is always darkest before the dawn. Can’t believe I just quoted Batman in my review for a Marvel comic. It must be all that time I’ve spent talking with Nate and Shaun. Horrible influences on me. Or maybe I just need to stop spending all night getting…

  • The New Avengers, vol 2 #18 – Review

    You’re really growing on me. (Or am I growing on you?) That little tune is from the British glam rock band The Darkness. There’s no indication if Norman Osborn is a fan of them, but he is a fan of putting together his own dark bands of villains. In…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #17 – Review

    Number 5 is alive. And Norman Osborn is free. In Osborn’s quest to regain an Iron Patriot suit, he sends an iron giant up against the New Avengers. Do the heroes have what it takes to survive this deadly game of rock ’em sock ’em robots? Can they short…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #16.1 – Review

    Point. Set. Match. Osborn. The man who had recently cast a dark shadow over the Marvel Universe has had enough of sitting in a prison cell. The man behind the Green Goblin mask is ready to break free and the only thing standing between him and his Goblin Cult…

  • The New Avengers Annual #1 – Review

    Why is a raven like a writing desk? Anybody familiar with that riddle may know that there’s no clear cut answer. Just like the New Avengers have no clear cut answer as to why they are being attacked by Simon Williams and his team of Revengers. The riddle, in…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #16 – Review

    Tell me, my friend, have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? I have. I’ve also challenged the devil to a fiddling contest and won. I’ve thrown back a couple of drinks with the robot devil in the year 3000 and once attended the devil’s birthday party…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #15 – Review

    Welcome, to the Late Night Crawlspace Show with your host, Brian Bradley. This latest review features special guest, Squirrel Girl. The super babysitter of Danielle Cage has been gracious enough to join me to discuss her staring role in the latest New Avengers comic. She has been a background…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #14 – Review

    Hush, loyal reader, don’t say a word. Brian’s going to tell you a story about Mockingbird. Ok, well obviously don’t be quiet. Comments are always greatly appreciated, so please speak up. Especially now because I’m mixing up the format of my review a bit. Instead of breaking it down into what I…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #13 – Review

    She’s alive! I hope that’s not spoiling the ending of this story for anybody, but had it ended any other way it would have made the whole story arc even more pointless than it already was. But at least this story arc is over. We don’t need to do…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #12 – Review

    Beep, beep, beeeeeep. That’s the sound of my interest in this storyline flatlining. Seems everything and everyone is dying in this comic. That is, everyone besides the one person who is supposed to be dying. Mockingbird continues to knock on death’s door as this plot is dragged out. At…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #11 – Review

    There she blows! Like a giant whale breaking the water for air, the New Avengers review has resurfaced. You know what they say, better late than never. Sadly there’s not a whole lot of things that are better in this issue than the last one and we continue to…

  • The New Avengers, vol. 2 #10 – Review

    C’mon everybody, let’s make a night to remember. I’m coming at you with a brand spankin’ new, New Avengers review, along with a bundle of Bryan Adams references. Why? Because in this issue we go back to the Summer of ’69… ’59. So if you’re a Nick Fury fan,…

  • New Avengers, vol. 2 #9 – Review

    Hey there. How are things? Things are going alright for me. There are even a bunch of things going on in this review. In fact, there are fifteen instances of the word “thing” in this review (not counting this little intro thing). Featured in this issue is our rocky…

  • New Avengers, Volume 2 #8 – Review

    They’re just begging me to turn their comic book covers into fake movie posters. Luke Cage and Jessica Jones star in this issue of the New Avengers story, titled ‘Date Night.’ I’m assuming that the plot of this issue is a direct adaption of the 2010 romantic comedy movie…

  • New Avengers, Volume 2 #7 – Review

    Have you ever seen that movie Adventures in Babysitting? Well I had the perfect image in my mind to represent this New Avengers issue using that movie’s poster. Using Photoshop I was going to add the Avengers heads to the bodies on the poster and then call it: “Avengers…

  • New Avengers, Vol. 2 Catchup – Issues 1-6 Review

    Hello, Spider-Man and Avenger fans alike. Sorry for the extreme length of this first review, I can be known to ramble. Since the New Avengers have been in operation since last summer, and I already had this big six issue review put together, I figured I’d use this time…

  • New Avengers #1 Review

    Scorta of the Marvel Universe: Introduction: What are “scorta?”  Well, any Latin student will tell you that “scortum” in the singular is a term for a prostitute (male or female).  In short, someone who gets around.  In this series I will be examining the love-lives of several Marvel characters…

  • New Avengers #59-60 Reviews

    New Avengers #59-60 reviewed AFTER Siege #1! What’s going on? It’s a bit like the Captain America scandal, it all being revealed before Reborn #6 was even released. Bit of satire towards the industry, eh? In all seriousness, it is my fault that these reviews are so late. No…

  • New Avengers #58 Review

  • New Avengers #57 Review

    The Wrecking Crew and Jonas Harrow have just used their power drainer to drain the powers of those who have powers. Now, let’s continue… NEW AVENGERS #57 WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis ARTIST: Stuart Immonen INKS: Wade von Grawbadger COLOURS: Dave McCaig LETTERS: Albert Deschesne PLOT: The Avengers (both New…
