Over the years Marvel has become taken the lead when it comes to bringing their heroes to the masses in comics, TV, and movies. While they produce tons of comics and graphic novels all the time now they have re-launched their original graphic novel line kicking it off with Avengers: Endless Wartime from creators Warren Ellis and Mike McKone.

Avengers: Endless Wartime follows the Avengers facing an abomination, long thought buried, that has resurfaced in a war-torn land. Marvel has found a way to create more stories for their wide variety of characters with these new graphic novels that work really well. This first one not only brings the usual action and expected story telling they are known for, but also work in even more aspects of the pasts to both Captain America and Thor while working them together and connecting them. The first half of the book is a bit slow using a pretty average layout and method of delivering the story, but once it finally gets to the meat of the story it steps things up a bit. The blending of the worlds of Thor and Captain America for this story take what could have been a pretty average tale and gave it more depth and urgency. The McKone’s art is good for the dialogue aspects of the book, but when it gets to the action aspect he creates some epic sequences and action that helps to elevate what could have been an average book.

These styles of graphic novels lend themselves to some great storytelling options if handled right. There is such a vast archive of characters and ideas that their creators can run with and could deliver some great new entries into the Marvel Universe.
