Top 100 Summer Comics… #81

Considering there were two coastal Avenger teams, it made sense.

The Avengers took care of all dangers to NYC and the surrounding northeastern area.

#82 – West Coast Avengers 46

You know, you couldn’t diss Chicago by putting a team of losers there. Chi-town is way too cool. Milwaukee? Nice city, but yeah, you can clown on Milwaukee. But hey, at least you have a super-hero team!! THE GREAT LAKES AVENGERS. Just saying it makes me laugh. I remember vividly seeing the cover and being extremely excited about it. I think this story was absolutely classic and one of John Byrne’s finest moments. PLEASE find this and read – rarely does comic relief actually come across so smooth and fun while maintaining the tone and consistency expected from superhero comic books.
