In this day and time, a 102 book run would be considered VERY successful, imo. However, the addition of a 2nd Avengers book has be wondering: what is the opinion of the board as to why the West Coast Avengers (or Avengers West Coast) comic failed to last any longer than it did? Was it due to the comic crash of the 90's? Did it turn to crap?

I always enjoyed it and will be glad when I can get the last 50 or so books of that title, since I never finished it!

Thanks in advance for the thoughts!

thanks,
boham

I really can't put my finger on why the book lost me. After the first 20 or so issues, the stories just didn't seem that strong. There was a long stretch where I did not like the art, and the villains seemed lame to me. Master Pandemonium??? Who thought that name up? And they wanted to take him seriously? If Slott thought that up as a joke, I could take it.
