I rather liked this volume, the action is good and the writing works for the best part. It is a bendis book, so be prepared for all the self-interruptions and repeated lines that implies. The art is also nice, although it isn't my favorite David finch work. The male necks are all really thick, and his noses seem way too sharp almost. Those issues, combines with his really pronounced cheekbones make his captain America and Peter Parker look almost identical beside the hair color.
By this point, if you did not know that Brian Michael Bendis has taken almost complete control of every major Marvel Universe Event since Avengers Dissassembled, you are a little behind. He's an author that you either love or hate for his directions. While two main stories happened prior to the start of New Avengers (Disassembled and Secret War), this is really where the Marvel Universe begins to see its change. The story behind "Breakout" to put it simply is that there is, you guessed it, a breakout, and many, nearly 50 villains from a wide array of comic series escape. This event, which gathers the New Avengers initially, affects the Marvel Universe as a whole for a great while into Bendis' Marvel timeline.(Punisher War Journal which started about the time of the Civil War made numerous references to this breakout during its run, just to give you an idea)
New Avengers does not do a BAD job on anything. The dialogue isnt terrible, the action is solid, and the art doesn't leave you wanting more. That said, New Avengers is not a continuously great title. I thoroughly enjoyed "Breakout" and would recommend it to anyone who likes comics. The series afterward i found to be very off and on good...one thing i give Bendis credit for is his overall consistancy (ultimate spiderman comes to mind in that same respect). The importance of the New Avengers (and later the Mighty Avengers) is mostly as a companion to the main events in the Marvel Universe, and the MU is certainly full of events that are worth having extra information for. Although Bendis takes too much advantage of this during Secret Invasion (which is almost completely unreadable without the Avengers titles), New Avengers is a solid read that doesn't always leave you wanting more, but leaves you satisfied enough to continue reading if you have the time
This is a new mix of heroes with a new mission. It is interesting to see a team with an actual mission beyond just catching the latest villain to pop out of the woodwork. The heroes have a good chemistry from the very beginning. Finally the artwork is very nice comic book artwork.

I like the way it developed and how they assembled.
This is the new avengers.
I recommend it highly but you'll need to read the rest to get the whole story. Excelsior!
