Yes!
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #4 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Inhumans get involved as the fight over the twins spills over to everyone. 

 

Funny, charming, just gorgeous art - pencils, inks, colors, everything - this is a perfect mini-series.  I need to remember I own this on Comixology whenever I need to cheer myself up.   Love, love, love!

I got to the one panel of Black Bolt
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #2 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

It's in this issue, and it made me giggle.   But I giggled through reading all first two issues, so...

 

I'm really loving this series, and I it keeps up the funny in-jokes, the warmth, the heart, that made the first issue so much fun.   Petty fights between child-versions of Avengers and the X-Men are the best, especially with Young writing and illustrating.  

 

I'm off to read issue three.

I'm rereading this series for apparently one panel of Black Bolt
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #1 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

Worth it.   This is Skottie Young's take on AvX: all the heroes are children and they're fighting over things like burnt toys, and who gets the new twins in town X-Men or Avengers.   It's adorable, and it sidesteps all the real reasons the Avengers versus X-Men were really fighting: to save the world, because they thought they knew what was best, the same reasons as ever, really. 

 

Still, you'd think the lack of tension would hurt this title, but it only adds to my delight.   How wonderful to see these childish version of these heroes.   Young take every opportunity he can to make a bad pun, or throw in a reference to the heroes origins stories, that he can, too, and this adds another layer to the storyline.  

 

There's enough warmth and humor that I end up caring about this silly little street fight, even knowing what it was really based on, and how serious those issues of freedom versus safety were, and still are. 

 

Love, love, love this series.

Better
Avengers & X-Men: Axis #9 (of 9) - Rick Remender,Jim Cheung

The ending, with Sabertooth still good and still struggling with his compassion, does more to tell me about what being flipped around does to a person than anything else in this whole event.   It's heartbreaking, it's heartfelt, and I wish more like that had been done wth the series. 

 

Still, it's over, and I'm disappointed that they present Medusa as a part of this when she really wasn't, and was barely in one and eight, but I still kept liking this more as the event went on, possibly because I knew it was closer to ending. 

 

And hey, it ended on a high note.   Not something I'll reread in the near future, though, mostly because it means slogging through the earlier mediocrity to get the full story.

Avengers recast
Avengers (2016-) #1.1 - Mark Waid,Barry Kitson,Jordan Boyd

This is the early days of the Avengers, when the original team dropped out, and Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver joined the team with Captain America. 

 

Except Cap will forever be tainted by Spencer's bullshit Secret Empire, and Wanda was just bratty here.   So I only read it because Medusa was part of the Fearsome Four and even that couldn't get me to buy issue two or invest in this series. 

 

Anticlimatic given how easily the new Avengers are taken out and seeing as I didn't really care much about anyone within this comic, that lowered the tension even more for me. 

 

But Medusa so Inhumans so I reread this.
