Review: Remender and McNiven’s Uncanny Avengers 14

UNCAVEN2012014_LRCB-1

By Jeffrey O. Gustafson I guess I’ll start off by admitting I haven’t really been reading writer Rick Remender’s Uncanny Avengers. I read the first arc largely because of John Cassaday’s presence on art, but Remender’s story – involving the Red Skull stealing the recently deceased Charles Xavier’s brain – left me a little cold.

Marvel’s Next Big Thing: Captain America

The final Marvel phonecall of the week was for Rick Remender and John Romita Jr’s Captain America relaunch.
