Avengers #25 - Cover

A nice Kirby/Ayers cover, the Avengers facing off against Doctor Doom. I especially like the posing of this cover, with the Avengers getting ready for action and Doom just standing up to them in the foreground, supremely confident.

Sure looks good - but what about the story?
I dimmly remember the Cap/Hawkeye/Witch/Quicksilver-Team did have some exotic sceneries in their stories, but not very remarkable enemies. Did I err?

Oh yeah, before I forget again...

I usually start my day checking for new entries. Haven't linked you yet on my Weblog, but you are of course my first choice :-)
Good work, beautiful.

Thanks for the kind words.

It's a non-Kirby story inside (as with most entries where I post the cover). Some nice Heck/Ayers work in this issue, a few good bits in the story, but I always get confused by the beginning where they try to explain the whole Doom/Kang/Rama-Tut connection.

Other than Cap's pose being a little funky, the rest of this cover is great. Really powerful "shot" of Doom standing over them.
