Book Review: Avengers Epic Collection: Operation Galactic Storm

Avengers Epic Collection: Operation Galactic Storm (Avengers: Galactic Storm)Avengers Epic Collection: Operation Galactic Storm by Bob Harras

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's a 19-part cross-over saga told across seven different magazines with an epilogue chapter thrown in. This isn't the type of book I'd usually go for, but this was actually pretty good as the Avengers try to stop the Kree and Shiar from destroying the Earth in the course of their war.

This works because the book manages a delicate balance. Each issue needs to feel like a chapter in the ongoing saga while also feeling like they really are a part of their own book, and it succeeds. The story moves and their action, adventure, personal issues, and of course, the West Coast Avengers worrying about being seen as good as the regular Avengers. (Though actually that's mainly Hawkeye.)

I'll be honest that I'm not a big fan of the ending chapter, but I don't think it's the worst thing ever, and I did enjoy the journey the book took. Overall, it's a pretty good read, particularly the Captain America and Quesar chapters.
