Comics Are Boss: Avengers Prime

This really doesn’t need a lot of elaboration. Nowhere but in comics will you see something like this presented with a straight face so regularly.

Also the comic this comes from, Avengers Prime, has been a surprisingly fun miniseries. It’s a bit transparently “Getting the band back together” in the sense that it’s part of a larger effort to make Iron Man, Captain America and Thor the pillars of the Marvel universe, which might have something to do with them all having movies out soon individually and starring in the Avengers movie. Still, it’s a well-told story of coming together under adverse circumstances. Like a company-mandated camping trip that goes wrong, only because it’s comics the Norse goddess of the dishonored dead is trying to murder everyone.

Plus, writer Brian Michael Bendis manages to keep conversations at a reasonable minimum, something he tends to run away with in other books. Look for it at your Local Comic Book Retailer!
