Collecting the first 14 issues of DeMatteis' run and a handful of other tie-in issues. The only time I ever picked up The Defenders during their original run was from this period, and even then it was a handful of issues. Odder still, I was a big Hulk fan (still am), and yet he was gradually being pushed out of the title (maybe thats why I only picked up a handful). Namor even moreso. And the Valkyrie seemed mostly side-lined in these issues.

DeMatteis seemed to be getting a kick out of all thin

I read these comics way back when I was a kid. The Defenders are an iconic comic team. Great read and an important part of the Marvel comics mythos. Very recommended
