More About the Author

Kelly Sue DeConnick

I'm a writer, of comic books mostly. I live in Portland, OR, with my husband, writer Matt Fraction, and our kids, Henry Leo and Tallulah Louise.

I'm working on a book called Pretty Deadly with artist Emma Rios. It'll be out in 2013 from Image comics.

I also write Captain Marvel and Avengers Assemble for Marvel and Ghost for Dark Horse Comics.

Varies from hilarious to action packed to deep and thoughtful.

Definitely one of the funniest Marvel books I’ve read this year, DeConnick proves she can write the hell out of an Avengers book.
Sam Quixote
The story takes a darker turn that requires the assistance of Captains Marvel and America.

I’ll just say it: I’m not a fan of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s writing. I tried her Captain Marvel and didn’t like it; Pretty Deadly was full of unrealised potential that divulged into a turgid mess; and one issue of Ghost was enough. So I was REALLY surprised when I picked up her Avengers book and found myself laughing at the banter and enjoying the book. She surprised me in the best possible way and made me want to give her Captain Marvel another shot.

Here’s what I’ve noticed about modern superhero comics - they split into two camps. You either get a good character story or you get a well-plotted story. The great books are the ones that have both but the good ones usually do one or the other, while the weaker ones do crap versions of those types while the awful ones achieve neither.

So for example, good character books are Gillen/McKelvie’s Young Avengers or Fraction/Aja’s Hawkeye where you don’t mind what the story is because you love the characters. Good story books are like Soule/Pulido’s She Hulk or Ellis/Shalvey’s Moon Knight where the plot captivates you more than the characters. The truly great ones are books like Slott/Various Artists’ Superior Spider-Man which has a great central character you want to read more of AND a fantastic absorbing plot.

ANYWAY: Avengers Assemble is a good character book - the plot’s not important, it’s just something for the characters to be doing while they’re riffing. The first arc concerns a Chinese villain called Yun Guang Han who wants to create an unstoppable army of super soldiers or something. The second sees an outbreak of lizard people amidst the youth of Siberia. Meh.

But the character stuff is wonderful.

Kelly Sue DeConnick has slowly been making a name for herself as a leading female writer in comics. When I heard she was going to be taking over this title as the writer, I have to admit I was skeptical. I figured that this title was basically launched as a short-term money maker that coincided with the release of the Avengers movie by using the same cast of characters shown in the movie. I also figured it would probably not run for more than a year before being kicked to the curb, so it didn’t really matter if it was any good or not. So, heh, why not stick a female writer on the title for the sake of diversity? If she blows it, it’s no big deal because it’s a short-term gig anyway, right? Well, now that I’ve read DeConnick’s work, I have to say that I was wrong in my thinking. She can definitely hold her own, as a write, and I’d be happy to try other titles written by her.

This book is a compilation of several short stories. The first is an Avengers story about a wager between Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. That story starts off light-hearted but quickly turns serious and dangerous. The second story is a tale of Black Widow, who is joined by Hawkeye and Spider Woman on a mission of reparation to the family of one of her past assassination targets. The last story in the book is centered on The Vision. This last story is the shortest and is probably my favorite of the three.

Collecting Avengers Assemble #9-13 & Annual 1.

There are three stories in this collection with the first being fun in no small part due to the witty banter between team members and Stark's snarky and smug superiority complex. It deals with a virus that makes people superhuman and is fast paced, fun and ably drawn by Stefano Caselli. The second story starts out promisingly enough focusing on the Black Widow and her past but it devolves into standard fare quickly and isn't anything to speak of. The annual brings an old Iron Man nemesis back, Sunturion, and focuses on the Avengers apprehending him before he smokes his former employer. This issue (written by Christos Gage) is much more serious in tone and more important in depths of character and emotional quality. It's a good read, though not a fantastic one, and the heavy inks glossing it over by a variety of artists distracts from the story IMO. So the overall disparate product rates as an "okay" but is really more of a take-it-or-leave-it deal, more important to the established fanbase than anyone else, and certainly not the casual partaker.

This is the second collection of the new “Marvel Now” series, containing issues 9-13 and the annual. The concept of the series was to appeal to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The characters are modeled more on their film counterparts, but the storylines still remain within the Marvel (comic) Universe continuity. I thought the first volume was a lot of fun, but this one takes that to a new level.

One of the things many fans of The Avengers film loved was the budding friendship between Stark and Banner, the “Science Bros.” Stark accepted Banner as is, and wasn't afraid of him (whether that was wise remains to be seen!). This first half of this volume provides a showcase for that bromance. A scientist has gone missing at an arctic facility and Stark makes a bet that his team will beat Banner’s to finding him. So Hulk and Spider-woman pair up against Iron Man and Thor. The story takes a darker turn that requires the assistance of Captains Marvel and America. This story finally had the tension that was missing from volume one of the series, plus some character development. The story was well done, and I LOVED the ending!

The second half is split between a story of Black Widow responding to a debt marker with the “help” of Spider-woman and Hawkeye and The Vision. This first story nicely balances the darkness of Black Widow’s past, she is atoning for assassinating a scientist, against the bickering/bantering of her two colleagues. The tales hints at what readers can expect from Black Widow’s solo series (which is awesome!). The second story sees Iron Man and Vision trying to help “Sunturion” who is dying and possibly losing his mind – and subsequently control of his powers.
