The story line for this book seemed familiar to me when I read the synopsis, as I probably read some of it or most of it years ago when it first came out. But often times back then in the 70's, I didn't always catch every issue and it wasn't uncommon for a ten year old to miss a few issues from time to time. But now, thank goodness for graphic novels.

Being a reader of the Avengers years ago when I was a kid and as I get re-acquainted with Earth's Mightiest Heroes now as a 'big kid" more than once I wondered what kind of things went on inside Avengers headquarters when they were not out saving the world. It made perfect sense to me that they would have daily meetings, discussing strategy, making decisions on their weaponry, heck...they may have even had to gather in the conference room around that familiar table and decide who's turn it was to wash the Quinjet or what to serve at their annual barbecue for all I knew, but one thing was for certain, and that was that the roster would inevitably go through some changes and it made perfect sense to me that the members would hold meetings and decide who to take on as replacements. The opening chapters of "The Private War of Dr. Doom" takes us inside the Avengers Mansion and gives us a peak into just that - it would no doubt be big news and incorporated into the story the momentous event is presented with full media circus fashion covering it much like how the media covers the Vatican when choosing a new Pope.

"Avengers - The Private War of Dr. Doom" is a must read for fans of the the classic Avengers. Just the mere thought that Dr. Doom would enter into an alliance with the Avengers, is worth reading this book. The story is well developed with multiple characters and keeps the action exciting and the drama flowing.

The Avengers has been one of Marvel's strongest books This collection is at the beginning of Gerry Conway's run on the book and he did not write the classic stories that characterized Stan Lee Roy Thomas and Steve Englehart when they wrote the book. This is asolid collection it probably should be called The Private War of Attuma because he is the true villain of this storyline. He is able to force the Avengers to attack the Submariner for him and Dr. Doom is involved because of a storyline in the obscure and unlamented SuperVillain Teamup which has an issue reprinted as it was part of the overall storyline being collected. A solid story nothing great in writing or art but above average and worth getting if you are a big fan of the Avengers comics of the 70s

Format: Hardcover
The Avengers have returned from their last mission with a bloated team roster. They hold a meeting with all of New York watching as they change their roster with new additions and bid farewell to others. Once the line up is selected, a ghost from the past appears at their doorstep. The dead super being Wonder Man arrives leaving the team whom remembered him with questions. -summary

Written by Steve Englehart, Gerry Conway, Bill Mantlo, and a few others back in the late 70's. The Private War of Dr. Doom is the follow up to Avengers: The Serpent Crown. Although at some point it was adapted into animation form during the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series. It's one of the more forgotten storylines in the Avengers mythos, and it's mainly remembered for bringing Wonder Man on to the team. This TPB collects Avengers issues 150-156, Annual #6, and Super-Villain Team Up #9.

The opening two issues are great reads for someone unfamiliar with the Avengers history as it delivers a short recap on the team's origin and upbringing. This part will definitely bring new readers up to speed, plus greatly appeal to older fans whom were around for that time period and read those stories. It's a really good start and things begin at a good pace with the return of Wonder Man, whom made his debut during that era with the original team. Wonder Man's return leads the Avengers to Louisiana in order to learn more, and from here the story begins to build up into a longer running arc, as well as provide some after math to The Serpent Crown affair.

In regards to the handling of its characters, the story does develop some well enough while others merely feel brushed upon. I was never a fan of the Beast and up until this day I still pretty much hate the character.

I bought this cause I was thinking back on some older Avenger books I had when I was young and how this storyline stuck out in my memories, so I went looking for it and found this trade. It was good to re-read these issues and see Attuma wearing the Visions cape.
