LET’S GO TO LIMBO! Magik joins Conan with guest Avenger the Black Knight and…the Juggernaut. An Asgardian dragon with the second eye of Agamotto doesn’t stand a chance. Or maybe he does. Either way, the Sweet Sixteenth of this comic is going to be a knock-down, drag-out fight that will punch you upside the head. Fair warning.

Review: Savage Avengers #15

Savage Avengers #15

The disciples of Kulan Gath are preparing for Gath to come to Earth and reign supreme. Two different squads of Avengers take him on – one with a direct assault and then the group that takes the focus on this issue head towards a drug cartel taken over by Gath’s disciples. So what happens when you get the Punisher, Wolverine, Black Widow, Elektra, and Hellstrom together? Probably a whole lot of killing in Savage Avengers #15.

There was something enjoyable in Savage Avengers #15 due to just how absurdly, over-the-top silly and violent this book is. They might as well change the name to Murder Avengers because these members are, basically, just murdering anything with a pulse that is in their way. I thought it was a bit on the silly side to see a character like Black Widow reduced to showing off her top assets and then moments like Wolverine putting the Priest Of Sickles (dumb name) in a wood chipper. As wonky as that sounds, there’s also a lot of pure, unadulterated humor and enjoyment to seeing these characters doing some of these actions. Savage Avengers #15 ends up being fun in its excesses. Suffice to say that writer Gerry Duggan puts these characters in an amazing amount of crazy situations.

I haven’t been reading Savage Avengers prior to this issue so there’s some stuff I have questions about. It would have been nice to have seen the team that went up against Kulan Gath, other than the last page reveal. All we really get is a goofy story where is disciples are poisoning cocaine.

I always enjoy Patrick Zircher’s art. He puts a great amount of detail in his pencils. Here, his art is used to showcase a lot of blood and violence and his style works very well here. I do wish that a few of the panel backgrounds had something going on. Java Tartaglia’s colors are a good pairing but I do wish for a bit of a brighter color palette.

Savage Avengers is the kind of book where the premise should take me right out of it. I’m an old-school Avengers fan and it’s been a really long time since I liked an issue of any adjective-driven Avengers team. But with how ridiculous some of the stuff in this is, I’m a bit torn on how I felt but I decided to go with the positive. The Murder Avengers won me over but just barely.

While Conan’s team is busy trying to take treasure from a dragon, Kulan Gath’s forces are poisoning the world’s drug supply to summon Shuma Gorath. Black Widow, Wolverine and Son of Satan take on the Priest of Sickles. Ain’t no party like a Savage party, and you can’t throw a poison drug caper without the Punisher crashing it.

Something is killing the Shuma Goraths! That’s usually great news, but Kulan Gath thinks he’s finally figured out how to consume the elder god, and it’s BAD NEWS for our plane of existence. Dr. Strange and Elektra recruit Conan for their plan to kill Kulan Gath. Now that is some GREAT NEWS.
