Review: The Avengers #14

The Avengers #14

TRANSYLVANIA IS BURNING! As vampire civil war throws the world into chaos, the mysterious Shadow Colonel and his squad of undead revolutionaries have one burning question on their murderous minds: Where is Dracula? And if the Avengers find him first, will the lord of the damned be friend or foe?

The vampire war has begun as The Avengers #14 takes us into the middle of the battle and chaos. Writer Jason Aaron delivers an issue that’s entertaining though it feels like something is missing as far as issues. For as far along as everything is, it feels weird the Avengers are only now acting on the situation.

Aaron takes us on numerous fronts in the war as the team has broken up to resolve the crisis that has arisen. What Aaron touches upon is a population displaced due to conflict and war with either bringing direct threat or implied. It’s hard to not see it as a thinly veiled commentary on today’s refugee crisis, though in this case the threat is real and not imaginary. One scene in particular involving Iron Man and Black Panther and how they see the situation is rather interesting and hints as to what could have been had the issue gone more that route.

The art by David Marquez, color by Justin Ponsor and Erick Arciniega, and lettering by Cory Petit is on point. Every scene is full of action and other than some moments here and there the perspective and focus of the panels and pages is top notch. It really feels like a wave of vampires crashing in on our heroes. They are overwhelmed and visually we can see that they’re overwhelmed.

The issue is a good one with a lot of action and some interesting concepts. Though not perfect, it’s a solid start to a story which feels like it could have been an event all on its own. With some minor tweaks this could have been a hell of a story reflecting on today’s socio-political climate. We’ll see where it goes but Aaron and the team have laid interesting groundwork.
