The Coming Of The Avengers!
I bought The Avengers #1 yet again.
This reprint offers up a "remastered" look at the Lee-Kirby-Ayers classic comic. The cover "painting" is by Dean White. The interior pages have a revised color which changes the story without really altering it fundamentally. It's a fresh way to see the tale.
I have the original, and I have most all the reprints of the vintage jewel through the years. My Avengers collection ended with the advent of the "New Avengers" a few years ago, but I still find myself drawn to these reprint packages of the stories which wowed me for decades.
The lovely cover first appeared on this variant of the Masterworks paperback. It's a nice revision of the Kirby-Ayers classic. From the very beginning, The Avengers had something special. It's nice to see at long long last the rest of the wide world has caught on.
