Review by schatzi
I found myself wondering why I'm still reading this title several times during this collection. The art isn't very good - it's very sketchy and dark, and it's hard to tell what's going on sometimes. There's also a ton of filler - splash pages of fights with people screaming "argh" and "ugh" go on and on and on. And Bendis...I am not sure what is going on with him. The Hood is, theoretically, an interesting character, and I'm looking forward to seeing him more in the Marvel Universe.Tigra made a few guest appearances in these issues. I like the character fine, although she isn't a favorite, but she was treated horribly. Almost every scene she was in ended with her getting beaten up by various bad guys - and I'm not talking about a bruise here or there, but literally getting the crap beaten out of her. It was getting to the point that I was getting so angry with how the character was being treated that I had to put the book down.Honestly, I don't like how any of the female characters are being written. Jessica Drew is threatened while naked in the shower. Tigra is beaten up several times, and always in varying states of undress. Jessica Jones might as well not even be in the book. Echo is barely mentioned, and when she is, she's in pain or needs help. Is it too much to hope for a strong female character in this line-up?The only thing that keeps me reading is Clint Barton at this point, but he doesn't have a lot of face time.
