Hey look, John Buscema’s back!  And just in time for things to get extra stupid!

Hello, all, and welcome to Avengerous Tales 2.0!  We’ve already covered the swinging sixties (here’s the masterpost if you want to get caught up), so now let’s dive right into the sensational seventies and see what this brand new decade has in store for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Avengerous Tales 1.0 Masterpost

Figured it was about time I made one of these.  I also tried to include notes on which reviews contained comics when people joined up or left the team.  If I missed anything, or if any of the links don't work, let me know.

New reviews are coming soon, I promise. :)

Avengerous Tales 1.38 - 1960s Retrospective

Well, nerds and nerdlings, I can’t believe I’ve made it this far, but I have officially reviewed every single issue of The Avengers that was published in the 1960s.  We’ve come a long way, and to celebrate, I decided to take a brief respite before jumping into the sensational ‘70s and take a look back at what we’ve read so far.  After rereading all of my Avengerous Tales reviews (I am hilarious, I must say), I just want to share a few thoughts about the Avengers’ first six years of existence.

***Because this retrospective covers all previous comics, previous warnings apply.  These include: 

-racially motivated violence
-physical abuse
-emotional abuse

Avengerous Tales 1.36 - Avengers #68, Avengers Annual #3, Avengers #69

To read Avengerous Tales 1.35, go here!

We’ve got Sal Buscema, longtime artist for Captain America and The Incredible Hulk (and John Buscema’s brother), on art today.  Dang, the Avengers are going through artists faster than Harry Potter goes through Dark Arts professors.
