  I'm reading through the John Byrne run on Fantastic Four. This issue of Avengers fits nicely between FF 255 and 256. As part of the overall FF story, it's a great read. I don't know if I would feel the same if I were only reading Avengers and not the FF. I'm only at Avengers 153 right now, so I guess I will see how the issue fits in the overall Avengers story in a few weeks.

  I love this. There's a vast cosmic problem and personal issues side by side in the best Marvel tradition.

  +1 star for Captain Marvel going gamma ray laser. -1 star for the hurried addition of the FF and thei passing through the dimensional interface off camera.

  The Avengers stand in an elevator for 35 floors making awkward small talk while soft jazz plays. I'd love to read those panels.

  Ok, they tried explaining why Thor's hammer didn't turn back into a walking stick... but wouldn't it still have reverted back after the barrier was destroyed?

  The tie-in between this issue and Avengers 256 is really well done, but it's almost like you have to read both issues simultaneously to understand that it's well done. Whichever issue you read first will leave you confused and feeling like the story is broken and rushed.

There had to have been a better way to storyboard this plot between the two books.
