They were friends, brothers and teammates through all of Marvel's greatest adventures, but recent events turned them into the bitterest of enemies. In the wake of the Siege of Asgard Thor, Iron Man and Steve Rogers are brought together on the same side once more, but these great heroes can't truly trust each other yet. They better start soon because something only the Big Three can handle is tearing their world apart. This all-new, grand and dangerous adventure will catapult our heroes into the explosive Heroic Age and will unite comics legend Alan Davis with Avengers scribe Brian Bendis for the very first time.

Of the graphic novels I borrowed recently, this one was perhaps the only pleasant surprise whereas others were ones I had read before or they were ones that turned out to be unpleasant surprises.

An interesting adventure involving Thor, Captain America (Cap) and Iron Man (IM) and visiting the past wounds between Cap and IM. A rare romance occurs between a being of another realm and Cap.

Better than I would expect, given my general disdain for the writer, but it's the artist who elevates this. In the aftermath of Siege, the big three of the Avengers are pulled into a nightmare world where they have to set aside their differences and work together. Bendis lessens his tendencies to write endless dialogue with characters parroting his own voice- a huge problem for him- though it does turn up from time to time. And there are the odd moments that play into his usual ignoring continuity fallback, such as characters having to clarify terms or people they've certainly known before. Those tend to be the exception, rather than the rule as is so common with most of Bendis' writing, where continuity is thrown right out the window, even his own. Alan Davis makes this worthwhile. His artistic style is dynamic and bold, perfectly suited for the three Avengers and the mystical world they find themselves in. If a mediocre artist had been involved, it would have been a far less involving miniseries.
