5.0 out of 5 stars Avengers at their best, 20 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.


Excalibur Visionaries: Alan Davis Volume 3 (Marvel Visionaries)
Excalibur Visionaries: Alan Davis Volume 3 (Marvel Visionaries)
by Scott Lobdell Alan Davis
Edition: Paperback
Price: 17.09

4.0 out of 5 stars The end of a Classic, 20 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a must buy for all the Alan Davis fans (who obviously already own earlier Excalibur books).
This one contains the end of this classic title. Some turns of the story are a bit of a disappointment... but EVERY loose tie comes together at last (waaaay back from Excalibur #1 and even most of the loose ties that remained since the Davis/Moore run on Captain Britain).
The art of Alan Davis is (need I say it?)SUPREME.
