Holy shit. This issue took this series from great to amazing. First off – my usual praise for the old school art, the wonderful dialogue, and just how well the nostalgia is nailed (right down to old comic ads!). But this issue… wow. Not only do we get an awesome battle against the Frightful Four, but we also end the issue on a truly shocking note. I really do not want to spoil anything, but it’s crazy. I can understand readers skipping the main Avengers story right now (even though I love that one, too) but I really think everyone needs to be reading these “.1” issues!
