Library Journal Review

The comic book heroes and heroines on the Avengers team have changed over the years, and this updated guide, created by a group of superhero authorities, covers members, backstories, and time lines through June 2017 (the previous iteration published in 2012). VERDICT Eye-popping artwork, short blocks of text, superhero plotlines, and tidbits on writers, artists, and life behind the scenes at Marvel offer appeal for both seasoned fans and casual browsers. © Copyright 2018.
