CBR Review: New Avengers #9

I recently reviewed New Avengers #9 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "It’s always a welcome sight to open a comic and find Howard Chaykin’s art gracing its pages. With Mike Deodato, Chaykin draws part of New Avengers #9, showing some of Nick Fury’s activities in the late ‘50s as a Nazi hunter. Because, let’s face it, ‘Nick Fury, Nazi Hunter’ is a comic book everyone would buy in an instant, especially if Chaykin was providing the art. The contrasting styles of art lend a conflict to the comic, an interplay that makes it a more dynamic read. Unfortunately, it’s also a set-up issue where Bendis’s writing feels empty and mechanical. This is a necessary comic for its story arc, but not one that works entirely on its own."
