Mission: Jimmy Stewart and the Fight for Europe, by Robert Matzen


“What is it you want, Hitler? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Hitler. ”

Crabs, Assemble!, Part One: Marvel Masterworks: Ms. Marvel, Volume 1

Over the (Most likely...) next several months, I will be undertaking a MASSIVE reading marathon of Marvel's AVENGERS. I'm insanely behind in my comic reading, but that sometimes has a nice little side-effect: Collected editions will come out that fill holes in my unread books pile(s), so I'll put the new books in chronological order with the old books, which sometimes ends up yielding a massive pile of collected editions and/or floppies that scream out to be read together, in order, straight through. So, this is the first book (Actually, it's the second....MARVEL UNIVERSE BY JOHN BYRNE OMNIBUS was to be the first, but then I impulsively bought this book, which takes place before AVENGERS #181, so I had to read this first. Curse my continuity-mad mind!!!) of (So far!) a monstrous 27-book marathon. Join me, won't you....as we step back into the 1970's....?
