Read full description of the books The New Avengers Vol. 7: The Trust:I bought this as part of an effort to fill out my Dr. Strange collection before the movie comes out next year (hopefully).
The stories (written by Brian Bendis) were pretty decent writing wise, but unfortunately I wasn't a big fan of the art by Leinil Yu. I also wasn't a big fan of either the Skrull Secret Invasion storyline (which parts of this are a prelude to) OR the Civil War storyline (which parts of this are a postscript to).
Doctor Strange is in all of the stories (which was good), but except for the last one his role wasn't really critical (which was bad).
The last story (reprinted from New Avengers Annual #2, 2006) is a bit of a different beast however. First the art is by Carlos Pagulayan which I found more to my liking. Story wise the Civil War elements are still there, but they were handled a bit differently, so I didn't mind them as much. But more importantly there was some significant character development for Doctor Strange.
Unfortunately, this volume isn't as standalone as one might like. There are a lot of loose ends that (I assume) will be tied up in the next story arcs which are part of Secret Invasion. I won't be reading them, so I guess I won't know how they played out.
If it wasn't for the inclusion of the story from the Annual, I probably would have given this 2 stars, and considered it a waste of my time and money. With the story from the Annual (which wouldn't have made much sense without the stories), I'm giving it 3 stars.
Read information about the authorA comic book writer and erstwhile artist. He has won critical acclaim (including five Eisner Awards) and is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics. For over eight years Bendis’s books have consistently sat in the top five best sellers on the nationwide comic and graphic novel sales charts.
Though he started as a writer and artist of independent noir fiction series, he shot to stardom as a writer of Marvel Comics' superhero books, particularly Ultimate Spider-Man.
Bendis first entered the comic world with the "Jinx" line of crime comics in 1995. This line has spawned the graphic novels Goldfish, Fire, Jinx, Torso (with Marc Andreyko), and Total Sell Out. Bendis is writing the film version of Jinx for Universal Pictures with Oscar-winner Charlize Theron attached to star and produce.
Bendis’s other projects include the Harvey, Eisner, and Eagle Award-nominated Powers (with Michael Avon Oeming) originally from Image Comics, now published by Marvel's new creator-owned imprint Icon Comics, and the Hollywood tell-all Fortune and Glory from Oni Press, both of which received an "A" from Entertainment Weekly.
Bendis is one of the premiere architects of Marvel's "Ultimate" line: comics specifically created for the new generation of comic readers. He has written every issue of Ultimate Spider-Man since its best-selling launch, and has also written for Ultimate Fantastic Four and Ultimate X-Men, as well as every issue of Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Ultimate Origin and Ultimate Six.
Brian is currently helming a renaissance for Marvel’s AVENGERS franchise by writing both New Avengers and Mighty Avengers along with the successful ‘event’ projects House Of M, Secret War, and this summer’s Secret Invasion.
He has also previously done work on Daredevil, Alias, and The Pulse.
