Comics I Love - Stern's Avengers

I've mentioned how much I dig Roger Stern's comics in the past, and I would definitely point to his Avengers run (especially the later issues with John Buscema and Tom Palmer) as a high point in his writing career.

The problem with picking one single issue as a highlight is that Stern's run was one of those runs where it was more of one loooong story.

However, if I had to pick one, I guess I would go with the first issue of the Avengers: Under Siege storyline. Stern had set up the plot so well (especially Hercules' distrust of the Wasp) that when it all fell into place, it was just amazing.

And, of course, John Buscema and Tom Palmer on the art. Need I say more?

LOVE this comic.

If it was revealed tomorrow that Roger Stern's internal organs were all made of candy, enabling him to pee lemonade and poop pink strawberry ice cream, I would not be surprised.
He is THAT good.
