    Default Oral history of the Avengers!?

    This sounds like very lame second feature.I hope it's not like The Siege ones, cause they are very stupid.Especially Siege #3.It was frellin' redundant and only repeated the issue.

    This may become another Bendis bashing thread.

    It wasn't redundant or repetative at all, if you bothered to pay attention.

    I prefer my Avengers history taken anally.

    Aren't these supposed to be illustrated alongside the text?

    Because having just text pieces would be really boring and not worth my time.

    I'm confused as to how one accomplishes an oral history in the medium of print.

    You have to listen very, very carefully.

    Exactly. This just highlights how dumb these extras are.

    lol

    And I agree with what's been said, I'm a curious about how they're gonna work a written oral history. It sounds pretty damn boring.

    The thing I'm concerned about is that both Avengers and NA are still only 32 pages, which means either less ads (which I doubt) or less of the main story just so they can fit in this 'oral history'. I guess we'll see.

    I'm very concerned about this too...It's like they are trying to make it a selling feature- "And guess what? We're adding an oral history of the Avengers by Bendis in both the new Avengers and New Avengers series. No way! We've gone absolutely crazy! It's a must have!"...

    Better not be a talking Bendis head occupying panels after panels...Stop giving us this crap!

    Just.... why?

    Bendis is poor with continuity. Why is he compulsively drawn to writing stuff that emphasizes that very weakness? Why not leave this kind of thing to writers who have actually read all that backstory?

    well reading an Oral history is kinda weird but otherwise it is ok.

    Its possible we're not suppossed to take it quite that literally, and the story is simply about someone telling the history of the Avengers to someone else.
