Avengers: Volume 1 by Brian Michael Bendis, John Romita Jr, and Klaus Janson
This is a time travel story involving two generations of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. I was glad that I’d seen this animated film before reading it because it ties in rather nicely.
In the movie, the Next Avengers are actually the children of our fallen heroes. They are battling an enemy that has pretty much decimated the Earth and it looks like they might now win.
In the book, the heroes are starting to reassemble, despite the warnings of a few who think a superhero team only encourages villains and creates more problems that it solves.
This book deals with the non-linear timey-whimey stuff that Doctor Who does so well. It was a fun read and my first title for 2014.
Stay tuned for my reading log where I will keep track of every book I read over the course of this year. It will be my third year doing so. I really love having this record of what I read. I hope you will too.
