Avengerous Tales 2.45 - Avengers #155-#156

To read Avengerous Tales 2.44, go here!

Before we get started today, I need to provide a quick synopsis of Super-Villain Team-Up #9, where the cliffhanger from last issue was picked up.  The Avengers are all fitted with controlling collars and are compelled to attack Hydro-Base, where Doctor Doom of all people is trying to help get the Hydro-men back to normal.  (I assume this is because he was captured by Namor’s cousin Namorita, and she’s making him do her bidding.)  Meanwhile, the Beast has gone to Whizzer and Wonder Man for back-up, and they both agree to help find and free the Avengers.  Also Namor was enslaved by Doom and is dying or something.

On Hiatus (ish)

So I've been planning on taking a break from this blog for a while, since my interest in superhero comics has been sorely tested lately, and if you read this blog you can probably guess why.  (It's Civil War.)  Now it looks like that break is going to happen a bit sooner than I planned--Marvel isn't letting me log into their website, so I can't finish the next Avengerous Tale I was working on, which really stinks.  It was gonna be awesome.

Once I do manage to get back in, I'll probably post sporadically, i.e. when I feel like it and not every weekend like I've been doing.  My interest in this blog will probably peak again someday--it's waxed and waned in the past--but for now I think I need to take a step back.  In the meantime, I hope you continue to enjoy what I've already posted and thanks so much for reading!

Avengerous Tales 2.42 - Avengers #150-#151

To read Avengerous Tales 2.41, go here!

Let’s just hope that the 150th issue is more exciting than the 100th.  Well, it certainly can’t be worse than the 200th!

Avengerous Tales 2.41 - Avengers #148-#149

Also, bless both these cover artists for not putting the nose on Iron Man’s mask.  I don’t know if they forgot it or just straight-up refused to do it, but either way, I’m sure we’re all grateful.

Avengerous Tales 2.40 - Avengers #146-#147

To read Avengerous Tales 2.39, go here!
Just a reminder—the previous issue was created by Tony Isabella, Scott Edelman and Don Heck rather than the usual creative team of Steve Englehart and George Pérez.  In this first issue, we also get an art assist from Keith Pollard before returning to our regular folks.
