Avengers (Guest) Month on Collected Editions

Friday, May 04, 2012

[Guest reviewer Doug Glassman has an announcement ...]

In honor of the most anticipated movie of the year, I've decided to look back at the comics that inspired it. It's time for ...


Three Stooges Month!

Wait, don't hit back on your browsers, it's Avengers Month.

Collected Editions Avengers review month

In celebration of the upcoming Avengers movie, I'll be reviewing a wide range of Avengers stories here on Collected Editions this month. Stop back each week for a new Avengers review!

And to kick things off, here's a little trivia contest.

Can you guess which books I'll be reviewing, based on the hints below? The first person to guess them all in the comments can tell me what book to review in June (any non-DC trade under $40 not already reviewed at Collected Editions). Here's the hints:

1) A modern and definitive retelling of the Avengers' origins

2) The sequel to my first Avengers review on Collected Editions

3) An instant classic released mere weeks ago

4) The start of a young team with an uncertain future

5) What may be the worst Avengers trade of all time

Happy guessing!

By the way, here's links to some other Avengers reviews from Collected Editions guest reviewers:

* Review: Dark Avengers Vol. 1: Assemble

* Review: Avengers: Under Siege

Thanks Doug. Excelsior!

  2. 1. Avengers: The Origin
    2. I understand Agents of Atlas followed up (years later, under a completely different creative team) as a result of Avengers Forever, and they originally started as an Avengers team in What If? #9, but I think considering the series a sequel is a bit of a stretch. Or really any other series, for that matter.
    3. Secret Avengers: Run the Mission, Don't Get Seen, Save the World.
    4. Avengers Academy, Vol. 1 - Permanent Record
    5. Heroes Reborn: Avengers. Depending on who you ask, pretty much anything since Busiek could also apply. :P
