Crabs, Assemble!, Part Twenty-Eight: Atlantis Attacks Omnibus
 As we near the end of the "Crabs, Assemble!" Avengers binge-read, we take a short detour under da sea....Join me, won't you?  I have to say, I'm getting good and sick of reading nothing (Almost nothing...) but Avengers stories. There are four books left be...

Crabs, Assemble!, Part Twenty-Six: X-Men: Inferno Crossovers
 "What does this have to do with a massive binge-read of THE AVENGERS...?" , you might ask. I'll tell you....  One of the joys of having about 15 years worth of unread comics piled into your man-cave is that, somewhere in that pile, you probably have at lea...

Crabs, Assemble!. Part Twenty-Five: The Evolutionary War Omnibus
 Journey back in time, to when annual crossover events were just a gleam in Marvel's collective eye.....  In 1988, I was a lapsed comic-book reader. I pretty much dropped out of the hobby in 1985, due to teenage ennui and lack of funds. By 1988, I had my fi...

Crabs, Assemble!, Part Twenty-Four: The Avengers: Heavy Metal
