THE AVENGERS #1.5 (Dec. 1999)
Cover Art by Bruce Timm
In this “missing” Avengers story, the newly found team faces Doctor Doom for the first time. It’s a great and authentic throwback to those early Marvel Age stories. Including those silly “body improvement” ads prevalent in those early 60’s issues, which Roger Stern lovingly parodies
It’s funny how a relatively common comic book is really a rarity. I thought I’d never find it, until today that is. Timm very seldom did/does interior work, especially for an entire issue. But for him to do work for a publisher other than DC is a rare treat.
This comic also begs the question: Why can’t Bruce Timm do the art for every comic? At least most. His style is sorely missed.
