NEW AVENGERS: LUKE CAGE #1
The art was good enough in some panels and just messy in others so it sorta balanced out to average for this style.
The fight action was choreographed better in the Hammerhead and done much less enjoyable in the Hippo fight. Probably happens after this: http://marvel.com/digitalcomics/titles/HAMMERHEAD~colon~_DEATH_OF_A_WISE_GUY.2008.1, right?
The belt buckle bling is great but the rotating/occasional missing tooth is annoying. And the cover wristbands missing inside was disappointing.
The use of [the new?] Hippo and Mr Sinister was good but the revolving prisondoor presence was a bit timeline frustrating.
The desire to fix up his damage in Philly was a nice character touch but it feels hypocritical that his NYC wreckfasts are never fretted over.
The family moments are to be expected with Cage from now on and this one works well enough though it does seem to continue to mellow out the MAX persona of his wife.
The first of these 2 panels: http://stashbox.org/856327/cage1himes.JPG meant nothing and seemed a complete waste but then the next one held promise with the introduction of a potentially powerful figure in W.C.Himes as a new cast character.
Jessica's mention of Osborn was okay, if [unfortunately] only stretching a timeline placement with the Siege/SHRA storyline yet Ronin unmasking in public came across of an annoying/odd gesture for no good reason.
The cliffhanger was low key but it did genuinely raise my curiousity WHAT he did to deserve this punishment.

I miss you, Dan.
