Avengers at their best, 20 Jun 2012
If a book could evoke the sparkling magic that late 70s/early 80s Avengers stories were...this would be it.
If you are not in the mood for the overestimated snapping lines (and stupid plots) typical to a B.M.Bendis era, but are searching for a story that conveys all the heroics of a good, solid, Marvel-style story do yourself a favour and read it.
The art is great, in a very classic way (after all, it is John Byrne inked by Klaus Janson!) and the story, the pacing and the framing are superb.
David Michelinie writes some fantastic Avengers stories, and most of all, he works magic together with superartist John Byrne. Of course this book is famous for the origin story of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch (wich is of indeed very good) but in it you'll find also an amazing confrontation between Crusher Creel and Hawkeye, with timely backup by the other avengers, in one of the most down-to-earth locale ever shown in Avengers comics.
I like classic Marvel books, I loved this one.
