Avengers: Nights of Wundagore review by Raphael Borg

The classic tale “Nights of Wundagore” by John Byrne, David Michelinie, Mark Gruenwald and Steven Grant is a strange read in Avengers history, in that it exists between an approach of treating the Avengers as an organisation of like-minded individuals while also humanising them in ways that are believable and not too over simplistic. The most salient among these are the centerpieces of this tale, the siblings Wanda and Pietro (Maximoff) who are in search of their roots, as well as Hawkeye and Falcon, whose roots have been shaken vis a vis membership in the Avengers, their relationship towards it fundamentally altered. It is an engaging read, not of the cataclysmic sort but a rather intimate one, offering a nice change of pace but not too pedestrian.

Truly recommended.
