As a child, I was a huge Avengers fan and this story line had me enthralled. One man took on the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy!! At the book store where I bought my comics, I was a real pain for about a year as I could not wait until the next issue came out. My family had to move and all "unnecessary" things had to be sold or thrown away. Now I just purchased the digital edition of the entire Korvac Saga. It is eye popping with its full color palate and clarity of the drawings. Much clearer than the comics of the 1970's which relied on a dot pattern to add color. Buy this book and rediscover why as children we enjoyed comic books and their heroes.
