New Avengers #1

The latest addition to the Heroic age Avengers titles is here and it's just what I've been waiting for. Don't misunderstand me, I loved Avengers#1 and Secret Avengers #1 but this is what I want from my Avengers. I only started reading New Avengers from issue 51, but right away it was one of my favourite titles. I liked the street level adventures and the assembly of characters, and was surprised at how well the mixed lineup worked.
The new New Avengers seems like it's going right back to that, only with Luke Cage leading (which in my opinion is a plus) and starting with a storyline linked to the one that I started this series with.
The eye of Agamotto, Dr Strange, Dr Voodoo and Daimon Hellstrom, the son of Satan himself, are the focus of what looks like will be a good little adventure to get the guys into the swing of being a New Avenger (again!).
Immonen is perfect choice for pencils, as he continues to do what he did previously on this title, only better. Some of that may due to the contribution of Wade Von Grawbadger (srsly!) on inks and Laura Martin on colours. They both do an awesome job!
