Not long now 'til Christmas, so if you're looking for an idea
for a prezzie for a loved one (in my case that's me), you could
always buy this zing-zang-zowie AVENGERS EPIC COLLEC-
TION Volume Two.  Who cares if your girlfriend or wife doesn't
read comics - it kills two birds with the one stone by fulfilling your
spousal duty to give a gift, while at the same time providing you
with something to read.  Result!  So rush around to your local
comicbook store and buy your very own copy today.  (No
reading it 'til Christmas Day mind - when she flings it
back at you 'cos it isn't chocolates or jewellery.)

This was my intro to the Avengers, via Marvel Triple Action in the mid 70's. To me, it is EPIC indeed. 😎

Yeah, G, I've got a couple of issues of MTA - nice little reprint mag. I first read these stories in a comic called Terrific back in the late '60s, and again in Avengers weekly in the '70s. Now I've got them in Masterworks, Omnibus and Epic volumes, as well as a few original issues.

I was kind of goofy, Kid. When I started reading Marvel, I started with all the reprints....>MTA, Marvel's Greatest Comics (Fantastic Four), Marvel Tales (Spidey), and Marvel Spectacular (Thor). I did that for about a year before I started trying to read the new stories.

I was once upon a time an Avengers completist. I have the full run of the original series and I have pretty much every reprint volume up until about 2007 or so. Since then it's been a bit more sketch, but as I've said before these Epic books are mighty handsome indeed and the value is undeniable. Avengers #40 which is in this one was my very first Avengers regular comic. I own an original Don Heck page from that book.

I've got a bundle of the reprint titles, G - Marvel Collectors' Item Classics (which was later renamed Greatest Comics), Marvel Tales, Marvel Super-Heroes, MTA, Marvel Spectacular, etc. Every one a stoater.


That sounds like a great collection you have, RJ. If you could see me now, you'd think I was doing a Hulk impression. ('Cos I'm all green.)
