Format: Hardcover
With the story revolving around a bunch of Avengers from the past, present and future teaming up to defend
Rick Jones from the clutches of Immortus,
Busiek and Stern plays with a good number of really ambitious ideas all throughout the story.
From the past, there's Captain America from The Secret Empire that lost faith in his country; Hawkeye from the Kree-Skrull War; and an insane Yellowjacket.
The Wasp and a saner Hank Pym wearing the Giant Man suit, Giant-Man represent the then-current Avengers line-up.
Finally, representing the future are Songbird from a future in which she is an Avenger, and a future Captain Marvel.

The script by Kurt Busiek and Roger Stern, is ambitious, particularly with the concepts.
A standout element in this is the characterization, with several characters being written very well.
The artwork by Carlos Pacheco is good. With a clear energy in terms of story and a willingness to
put in a large scope that fits in with the script, Pacheco ends up giving the story the arts that it deserves.
Where it loses some points, however is in how chaotic some of the pages and panels are.
Also sometimes the action fell flat, with one panel for caracther fighting.

The concepts, the characterization and the art in general are very strong, yet they are brought down a bit by a
rather slow pacing caused by lots of exposition and dialogue.
It isn't exactly the masterpiece that some say it is, but the reason this book rises above any
other star-spanning epic is because it's all grounded in Marvel history. This is where Busiek shines.
Busiek and Stern take full advantage of the story, taking a long detour about two-thirds of the way
through the book to do some retconning of the history of the Marvel universe.

A great series, creative high point for all involved. The Soft cover of this done years ago had dreadful printing errors, misaligned colours etc.
This version has great priniting, slightly oversized which works well for Pacheco's art, all the covers without the logo's etc, some of the covers in black & white.
A great book. Don't give it a second thought. Snap it up

I've just finished reading this and am amazed that it had passed me by when it came out earlier.

First and formost it is a well written and drawn piece of work. Very entertaining on its own.

For me the real joy was the way that they pieced together the best part of 40 years worth of avengers storylines into a coherent narrative.

Personaly I was stunned in that I had read just about every story reference and so was really pleased with the selection of avengers that were used in this arc. The choice of captain america from no175 was inspired. Still one of the best ever captain america storylines ever.

I also loved a revisit to kang in the wild west,again for me a particular favourite.

If you are a fan of the avengers and have not read this and it is an absolute must.

To be fair if you aren't, I'm not sure if it would appeal.

For my part I loved it.
