Avengers v1 #92, 1971 - After a long hiatus, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America return to the Avengers. Neal Adams prefaces his run on this title with this elegantly composed cover. The three returning heroes dominate the scene, their faces and stances conveying the grimness of their decision. Adams' excellent rendition of the characters (including his first Cap and Iron Man) is more realistic than previous artists, adding to the somber tone. Other artists in this issue include Sal Buscema and George Roussos. This is number 1 of 5 Avengers issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Avengers issues.
