    War has broken out between the Kree and the Skrulls and the Avengers are caught in the middle The Kree Skrull War is one of the most revered storylines in the history of the Avengers Thanks to Marvel Unlimited, I was finally able to read it.The Avengers roster at this time, for those keeping score, is Goliath Hawkeye with Hank Pym s gear , Scarlet Witch, The Vision, and Quicksilver Anti Kree sentiment is on the rise on earth, due to some suspicious activities by Captain Marvel and the existence [...]

    This was a truly great read I really loved the way the story developed and unfolded throughout the book, it kept me guessing and not knowing what s in store The twists in the story had me hooked and I loved how it all came together at the end The large range of characters in this book was another thing I loved You get to know the avengers better, as well as other great marvel characters But I think my favourite thing about this has to be the art work It s seriously stunning and I was left in awe [...]

    Der KREE SKRULL WAR ist ein SF Epos mit vielen H hepunkten und erz hlerisch und k nstlerisch auch nach ber 45 Jahren noch ein Leckerbissen Mit den Skrulls hatten die Fantastic Four, man erinnere sich, schon 1961 zu tun Drei dieser Shapeshifter B sewichte blieben, ihrer Erinnerungen beraubt, als harmlose Rindviecher auf der Erde zur ck 1971 kehrt der Super Skrull zur ck, um Captain Mar Vell, einen auf der Erde exilierten Kree, gefangen zu nehmen, und die Avengers werden in den kosmischen Konflikt [...]

    OK, so this one is a little bit of a mess.The Kree Skrull War was probably one of the first big Marvel universe spanning events It s spoken of with reverence by comic readers and referenced frequently in the comics themselves So perhaps my hopes were just too high.The setup sounds great two powerful intergalactic races go to war, and earth is caught in the middle If that were actually the focus of the book, that would be cool But it s really not Instead, the Avengers first chase after the Skrull [...]

    Pretty dissapointing Most of the Story revolves around the Vision and Captain Mar Vell, and not the cool Mar Vell written by the Great Jim Starlin, but the boring version of Roy Thomas, the King of boredom and underdeveloped concepts.The title is misleading as there isn t any actual confrontation between the Kree and Skrull, you just know they are at war since they met and want to kill each other, but they never clash.The Avengers on the other hand don t really fight the Kree or the Skrull, asid [...]

    Muita informa o Chega a ser confuso Mas uma hist ria fundamental e inovadora para os quadrinhos.

    Noteworthy for being one of the 1970s key story arcs events from Marvel, as well as showcasing the art of Neil Adams for part of its run , the Kree Skrull War not only cements Marvel cosmic continuity but showed where Roy Thomas was taking Marvel s story telling in the post Stan Lee days and how much he owed to Lee s ideas and sensibilities.Fun, if not from a modern perspective great stuff, but certainly a bit of comics history.

    Avengers had featured multi part stories before, but under the guidance of legendary writer Roy Thomas, Kree Skrull War was the first truly epic opus in the title Running almost a year, the saga set the tone for this kind of far reaching story that traveled the globe before launching into outer space At the outset, the Avengers roster was down to only four members Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Goliath the Clint Barton version, shortly before he reverted to being Hawkeye Space hero Capta [...]

    A blast from childhood, this story still holds together pretty well even though the final chapter s a bit rushed with the deus ex machina being too abrupt and two subplots hinted at but never explored, tripping the flow of the narrative for no purpose The art by Neal Adams and the brothers Buscema is a lesson in storytelling for all those modern comics artists who seem to only produce sequential poster art.

    Michael
    I d heard for a long time that this was the greatest Avengers story ever I enjoyed it, but it s certainly not the greatest Adams art is exceptional but the story takes a little bit too long to develop, Roy Thomas dialogue makes me cringe, and the ending floats between contrivance and deus ex machina.But it s comics True, but I judge other comics by the same standards, too

    A classic Hilarious and fun.

    I was ok the first part of the book was very cool but the rest it was a little boring Characters that i loved Vision and scaler witch.2,5 stars.

    Beautiful to look at, but bogged down by overly weighty writing.

    Kenny
    Galaxy spanning epic.

    A fantastic telling of a pivotal event in the marvel universe I was lucky enough to buy these when they came out and read the original comics Very recommended

    AVENGERS KREE SKRULL WAR collects issues 89 97 of the original Avengers series and is considered one of the first major Marvel events, crossing over several comics into one unlike other events though, this is all concentrated into one title In this collection you ll see not just the Avengers, but previous Avengers, Rick Jones, Captain Marvel, the Fantastic Four, and the Inhumans These were originally published from 1971 1972 where the lineup of the Avengers included Goliath, Quicksilver, The Vis [...]

    I honestly don t understand how Marvel didn t collapse in bankruptcy with all of the terrible products they put out back when This, the collected story about the Kangs, the terrible first Thanos stories they re awful The only thing about them that doesn t just fail on every level is the lettering The lettering is competent The story, the pacing, the characterization, the art, the overwhelmingly stupid mental exposition Just terrible.

    Ryan
    Yeah, well the Kree and the Skrulls never really fight on the page and you need a score card to keep track of all the characters and understand their membership status with the Avengers But those Neal Adams issues are pretty amazing You will never see anyone draw the Skrulls and actually make them look cool.

    Keep in mind this story is from 1971, which means it has the old sensibilities of the era in regards to how it is written With all that said this I a good story A bit long, with lots of moving parts but good none the less a great read for those who are than just casual readers of the marvel universe.

    Austin
    The best part is the Neal Adams art.

    the classic cosmic war in marvel universe

    Good old school Marvel

    It s dated,but for what it is, it s pretty good.Favorite portion was the Fantastic Voyage tribute issue with Ant Man

    Marcello Tarot
    Non mi capacito della fama di questa storia, a mio parere immeritata non solo stringi stringi abbastanza povera, ma il colpo di grazia glielo d la vuota verbosit dell autore parole vacue che riempiono le pagine, appesantendole vanamente e cercando di dare un tono quasi epico a qualcosa che pi sconclusionata che altro, con un finale raffazzonato che sposta il focus da quelli che dovrebbero essere i protagonisti, pressoch annullandoli, a una spalla che assurge a deus ex machina BLEAH

    Wouldn t know how this looks like in tradepaperback form because I read a 1985 two issue reprint Neal Adams has been returning to the comics he made famous, writing and pencilling a new Batman maxi series, and an Avengers point one issue His style is now looser and moved towards the hyperrealist, with exaggerated jaws, melting faces, and a strange attention to teeth detail Perhaps using flat color for 70s artists sounds like giving them a pass though they do it for retro guys like Javier Pulido [...]

    Jon Arnold
    What s great about this is that there s a clear opening up of scale of the series The volume in this series collecting the first Ultron tale had a bad theatrical feel to it wherever they went and whatever happened you never believed the scenery It all looked like New York, wherever they went That changes with Neal Adams and the Buscema brothers on art duty here Adams in particular lends a sense of cosmic scale to events that Thomas s ambitious intergalactic epic would fall completely flat withou [...]

    I confess that it was not until Civil War that I became interested in anything beyond the X Men at Marvel I d always been aware of the other half of the line, but nothing had really drawn me in Since then I have been riding the Bendis train and thoroughly enjoying the ride Through this period I had very limited exposure to the classic Avenger s stories that forged everyone else s enthusiasm for the series The Kree Skrull War is by name one of the arcs that has always felt like a must read This c [...]

    I guess you had to be there The problem which I have with the comics published in the 60 and 70s is that while they are filled with creativity and creations that will stand the test of time, the stories and dialogue themselves while no doubt being groundbreaking for the time sadly feel dated now The same applies to this one.From Nick Fury calling the Avengers baby and Rick Jones hip to the vibe talk You will realise very soon that you ARE reading your parents Avengers This is a time where Captai [...]
