Short Book Reviews

Essential Avengers, Vol. 4 by Roy Thomas, John and Sal Busecma and Neal Adams - This 640-page black and white collection reprints issues 69 - 97 of the Avengers original run from the early 1970s. Widely regarded as the Avengers best run, it does indeed hold up well, due largely to the Skrull-Kree war storyline that take up the last 1/3 of the volume. Although the Skrull-Kree portion is available elsewhere in a color collection, the bulk of this book is not available in color reprints. I had a great time reading this and look forward to reading the next volume. Excellent!
