POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “Not enough people read this series. It has some of the strongest new Marvel characters in years, while featuring some of my long time personal favorites, such as Hank Pym, Tigra, and Quicksilver.

If you’re not a fan of the Fear Itself books don’t let that dissuade you. Even though it’s a part of the Fear Itself story arc, it can easily stand alone, focusing more on the relationships of the Avengers Academy students. That being said you should read the previous two volumes of Avengers Academy before reading this one. The writing is top notch as always and the art is great.”
