|not the first Avenger by a longshot|
more on that issue later, suffice it to say this issue to the left was not it.
the Avengers was almost always my first buy when it came to choosing comics. I had several issues, but my first real "series" of actually finding one issue after the other was Avengers #101-108, which is still one of my favorite story arcs to this day.
it was very Vision/Scarlet Witch-centric, who at the time captivated my imagination. it did also introduce me, albeit unknowingly to Harlan Ellison, which was pretty cool. as well as Hawkeye in his odd costume that lasted all of those ten or eleven issues.
|an awesome cover|
there were some great comic book stories back then, I gotta say. I highly recommend reading these stories, and they have been reprinted in the Essential Avengers v. 5, for a really good price.
I hope this is one of many Avengers posts to come.
