365 Comics...229: Avengers Arena #13 (2013)

I was kind of hoping I would have had the entire run of Christos Gage's Avengers Academy in the bag by the time this issue came out, but volume 3 seems tough to come by and the final volume just come out a couple weeks ago so it's just not working out.  Gage guest authors, to show kind of what's happening in the outside world regarding these teenage superheroes' disappearances, particularly at the Academy.  I was expecting a bit more AA backstory and big AA spoilers (of which there were still a few) but Gage writes a polished, well integrated script that, for a fill-in issue gives some interesting reveals about what's going on.  Small but kind of great.

I love the consistent lack of title on the cover too, just the "AA" emblem "tagged" onto the cover .
