2.0 out of 5 stars A horrible edition May 18 2009
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
The hardcover collection AVENGERS: FIRST TO LAST provides something like "bookends" to the saga of the Avengers. It collects the backup stories from Avengers Classic #1-12 and the 2-issue Last Avengers Story. The Avengers Classic tales, written and illustrated by a variety of folks you wouldn't associate with one of Marvel's flagship titles, were designed to fit in with the early adventures of the Avengers, and they do so fairly well. As I already have the early Avengers in Essential format, it's nice to have these extra tales under one cover; however, any pleasure I get from them is countered by Marvel's sorry reprint quality of The Last Avengers Story. Peter David and Ariel Olivetti amazed me with this miniseries upon its original release, as it is one of the darkest stories I have ever read from Marvel, with death and destruction around every corner. The mid-'90s collected edition is long out of print, so this hardcover is now the only way to conveniently own it. Unfortunately, it appears that Marvel simply scanned the pages from the comics. While that trick may work with line art, it doesn't do painted work any favors, and as a result, Olivetti's once-beautiful images look pixellated and faded. I continue to question both Marvel and DC's commitment to their hardcover reprint series. For this price, fans deserve more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Please Indulge Me.... June 26 2013

...but I'd like to direct your attention to the review I wrote for the Direct Market Edition of this book, which has a separate product page. Just search for "Avengers First to Last" and you'll have access to both product pages.

While I don't disagree with the tepid reviews of The Last Avengers Story, I think the Avengers Classic stories are absolutely wonderful and my review discusses why. I'm sorry I lack the computer skills to copy it here, but any real Avengers fans who haven't read these "classics" stories will likely find them rather wonderful. And I speak as a very old-timer who bought Avengers #1 when it first came out on the newsstands (no comic book stores back then) and have been watching them assemble ever since.
