First things first, we’ve utterly adored the first three issues of this series. The Great Lakes Avengers aren’t a group of A-Listers that defeat Thanos, they’re a dysfunctional family who try their hardest to make a difference. It’s a relatable premise, that’s not saying the characters or their adventures are relatable, but we can’t deny that we really enjoy reading about them each month.
This issue, in terms of plot, didn’t move the story forward too much. Councilman Snert finally got his comeuppance and the team could be stripped of their Avengers title soon, but that’s about it. Luckily, the pages are bursting with personality and lovable character traits that just make it a pleasure to read. The team could literally sit on a sofa for a full issue and we’d likely still enjoy it.
The artwork, yet again, is the winning element of the issue. The artwork isn’t quite as smooth as Will Robson’s art in the first three issues, but it still fits the bubbly tone of the script. We thought the inking and lines were a tad rough at times, but nothing serious enough to take away from the overall appearance.
In summary, you should read this comic if you’re up to date with the story. If you’re not, it won’t take you long to catch up and we assure you that you’ll want to keep reading on. If not, we’ll give you your money back (not!).
The Great Lakes Avengers, yet again, manage to do something wrong and may not be a team for much longer in this enjoyable issue.
