Book Review: Avengers Epic Collection Vol. 24: The Gatherers Strike!

Avengers Epic Collection Vol. 24: The Gatherers Strike! Avengers Epic Collection Vol. 24: The Gatherers Strike! by Bob Harras

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This collection of 1990s Avengers stories...aren't terrible. Yeah, Black Widow and Captain America are on the team and on the periphery of the action and the rest are hardly household names except for Vision. However, the stories themselves are not bad at all, though non particularly memorable. After the Avengers main story material, we get into a story involving Kang, a woman who has taken his place and time travel shenanigans with past and present Avengers meeting up. It's a good fun and i feel like the art while having some of the awful 1990sness that would define Marvel this decade...is not near as bad as it could be.

For me, what takes this book from three starts to four stars (maybe more like 3.5) was the reprint of the Avengers 30th Anniversary issue. There's a ton of insight into the history of its team, its major battles, and the reasoning behind some of the creative decisions made. To me, this more than made up for the book's deficiencies and made for a very fun read.
