AVENGERS #160

With #160, we are entering into what I consider to be the first truly great phase of Avengers comics.  Sure, the first handful of issues were great and many stories between were ripping yarns, but Jim Shooter’s stories, with George Perez and John Byrne’s art, are simply some of my personal favorites.

And really, mostly, it is about the art.

Perez was always good, but he started to understand the fluidity and dynamics of team illustrations in the books he drew between this one and the end of the Korvac sage.  And John Byrne was, to me, simply revelatory.  Nobody before him had managed to capture the essence of heroic poses…Byrne had style.

But this was a Perez issues.  And another Perez really understood how to do right: Covers.

One thing he didn’t know how to right though, was continuity.  Where the hell did this guy get another hand from???
