AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED TIE-IN! In the aftermath of recent events, will the Falcon and Cap be able to go back to their normal (if you can call their lives that) lives!?!

This issue is Priest on his C game, hell: his C game is many writers A game. This really helps to show what a tremendous talent Priest is! This was a great issue in every sense. The story construction has you gripped all the way through. The dialogue was intelligent and thoughtful and helped to further add depth and empathy to the characters. There was also loads of interesting threads to pick up on. Cap seems to be fascinated in Wanda and Sam seems to be strung tighter than Legolas' bow. Just checkout the shock ending for proof.

I know when a lot of cats open this issue up, they'll be sing "I can see clearly now the pain has gone" (do you see what I did there lol). I didn't mind Sears pencils at first, but now I don't know how I got through it. Bennett and Priest have just jumped back into the chemistry they developed on The Crew. And it's a joy to witness. As soon as you turn the first page, you're hit with an amazing splash page. And the goodness just continues on from there. We're given flowing fights and a real badass Falcon and Luke Cage.
