The Comic Critic Review The Avengers

I had an abundance of material to work with to create this strip. I could have done a review of just the teasers that led up to this movie. I could have done a whole Shwarma explosion themed stip. But I really wanted to see if I was the only one picking up on the fact that Disney purchased Marvel because it’s business model was nearly identical as its own. So, I decided to work off the angle of how this was the largest effort in years by a studio to strengthen an already solid franchise by having it produce the same form of fan loyalty in the theater that it has in the comic book store. The cycle of where young fans become addicted adults who then in turn indoctrinate their children.
