Honestly? What were they thinking...
Sure, Spidey was a big hero, but the whole story sucked. It was entirely tongue in cheek, but in a bad way. It was more like the joke was on the reader. Perhaps it was intentional, perhaps I'm taking the feel of it completely out of context since I haven't read any of the other period comics. That being said, I'm reminded that when graphic novels are good, they're very very good. When they're bad, they're very very bad.

El colmo de lo absurdo... Me estaba entreteniendo, estaba siendo pasable hasta que (view spoiler) Así no me lo puedo tomar en serio.

This trade collects Avengers & the Infinity Gauntlet #1-4 and Infinity Gauntlet #1. This book is in the "digest" format (pages are smaller than a normal comic book but larger than a paperback novel).

Avengers & the Infinity Gauntlet is part of Marvels line of comics aimed at younger readers and is a loose retelling of the classic story stripped down to the bare minimum plotwise and infused with zany humor, complete with a star-spanning road trip in a spacefaring mack-truck. Thanos has a p

So much crazy stupid fun it's unbelievable.

If it kills your boner to read comics where Dr. Doom is kind of a dork, then don't read this. If you're looking for serious, real stuff, don't read this.

If you want some of the most hilarious panels in comics, then absolutely read this.

I don't want to spoil ALL the fun. A couple selections.


Haha, peasant. Poor people and their doors.


Yeah, is the gauntlet like special, or is it just a convenient way to hold all the gems? Because, you know, if it fits Than

I had always heard about this famous Marvel story arc for ages, and since it's more than likely that we'll be seeing it watered down to punching in a few years- I figured I'd read it and see what's going on myself. And I didn't like it. Okay, particularly I didn't like the first 5 issues that were drawn and written like a children's cartoon. Did it make me laugh? Sure. Did it make me feel the intensity of the universe dying? No. In fact, the story has a lot of massive flaws. Mainly with the ...more

This is the silliest Avengers book we have ever read.

It’s probably not for superhero purists. C-Man and I couldn’t stop laughing, whereas the guys at our local comic shop looked at us funny for loving it. I honestly can’t tell if someone not familiar with Marvel characters would get the full depth of the humor here, but it’s a well-told story with plenty of fun even if you don’t. The plot is basically “something bad happens, an Avengers team saves the world” which is no surprise. The interstell

This was just terrible. Most of the book was obvious filler that had nothing to do with the main plot. Really!? Space pirates and a space blimp? Trying to fill 30 pages per issue must have been a problem for them.
The art was also mediocre at best. The panel layout was good, but the inking and the detail in much of this was lacking.
It wasn't the worst thing ever, so that's why im giving it 2 stars.

Mediocre artwork and ill-conceived attempts at humor dragged this down; but then I read reviews which informed me that this was written for a much younger audience as an introduction to the original story.

I enjoyed this installment in the Avengers' world, but it was not my favorite. I highly recommend it for all Marvel fans; it's worth the time to read and return to the Marvel universe. 3 out of 5 stars.

Funniest super-hero book I've read in a long time. Hilariously odd, which itself is odd since it's based on a series that was dark, dark, dark. Great fun. If all super-hero comics were this enjoyable, I'd read a lot more of them.

this captures all the stupid fun awesomeness of comic books and distils it to the very core of joy.

Doom will concede to your demands, this once.

A haphazard, silly version of the original story. It's an insult to the original.
