New Avengers #38
Writer: Brian Bendis
Artist: Michael Gaydos
Perhaps this story hit a little too close to home for me…
…which perhaps makes this a really good issue.
Wolverine appears (barely), but the breakup of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage takes center stage. And an emotional argument is the centerpiece. An argument that anyone who has been in a serious relationship can relate to.
And for the record, I agree with Luke Cage on this one, “I didn’t create this situation… This is too big not to have talked it over first.”
I expect many will take Jessica Jones’ side. Which is why this really is a terrific issue. One that shows why Bendis is one the best writers around when he wants to be.
From Marvel (preview): “The break up! Conspiracy, paranoia, betrayal may have taken their toll on the Avengers newlyweds Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. After the shocking turn of events at the end of last month’s ‘New Avengers’ Annual, has Jessica Jones turned her back on the Avengers?” On sale Feb 13, 2008.
