Secret Avengers #26

Writer: Rick Remender
Artist: Renato Guedes

The Phoenix is coming to Earth, and in an attempt to stop it, a squad of Avengers is sent to outer space in what is clearly a suicide mission. Told from Dr. Hank McCoy's point of view, the story takes readers back to the days of the Dark Phoenix -as a reminder of what's to come- and as far as the Kree world Hala where big things are about to occur. One thing that stands out is Renato Guedes' art. His style is very different from what mainstream comics fans are used to, especially considering the cosmic theme of this chapter; although it does take a minute or two to adjust to it, it is nice to look at. The arbitrary choice of drawing the Beast with the simian appearance he lost about a decade ago, and some other inconsistencies take credibility away from the plot. Regarding the sudden resurrection at the end, it is better to let it be the topic of discussion for next month.  Average issue.
