Hulk Smash Avengers #1 (of 5)

Just barely getting this one under the wire - the closest I've come yet to missing my "once a day review" string!

Hulk Smash Avengers is an old-fashioned Silver Age style tale, which means it's aimed at readers like yours truly.

It takes place very early in the existence of the team, as Zemo and the Masters of Evil try to recruit the Hulk to help them smash the Avengers.

It's a fun, classic tale with lots of action, a clever plot twist or two, and some wonderful art.

The story is by Tom DeFalco, who has lots of experience with tales like this, and the art is by Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema - which should be enough to tell you that it's wonderful.

It's a nice tie-in with the movie and a fun little tale. Nothing Earth-shattering, but very entertaining.

Grade: B+
