CBR Review: Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #5

I recently reviewed Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Well, at least the vampires have finally attacked. 'Blade versus the Avengers' has somehow outmatched previous Ultimate Comics Avengers story arcs for its maddeningly slow pace. This is the penultimate issue in the story and it ends in such a way that the desired 'Oh, no, how ever will Nick Fury and his Avengers defeat the evil vampires?!?' isn’t there so much as 'Alright, now what lame "twist" or "surprise" is going to be pulled out of someone’s butt to get this thing done in one issue?' The tension that this comic leaves has nothing to do with the story; It has everything to do with the storytelling. Namely, if so little has happened in five issues, how can one issue wrap up what appears to be quite a lot?"
