"Another welcome edition to Marvel's Omnibus line. Definitely worth the price tag...760 pages with a solid sown binding. Marvel does these omnibuses amazingly well." -- Jason Shayer
"Al Milgrom is tops on my list of under-appreciated artists. His classical style was well-matched to the subject matter. In film terms, [he] is a fantastic director. He always knows exactly where to set up his camera, how to frame his shots, and how to get the most effective performances from his actors. Every page tells the story with crystal clarity, and your eye moves through the page effortlessly. Milgrom choreographs both action and exposition so that the reader always has a clear spatial understanding of where people are and what's happening." -- Andy Ihnatko
"The opening four-issue miniseries by Roger Stern has just a hint of satirical brilliance to it. The notion of moving a team of Avengers to Los Angeles is ingenious." -- Darren Mooney
"In many respects, the early AWC run is vital to the current Marvel Universe. In an age when DC Comics has decided to eradicate its continuity in a bid to attract new readers, Marvel has opted for the other route: a more intimate world where history informs the present. With omnibuses like this one, that history is now readily at hand. As a glimpse into the Marvel Universe, AWC is a solid introduction to an important time -- both in Marvel comics and in American popular literature." -- Matthew Wolf-Meyer, Los Angeles Review of Books
"I can't help wondering what it would've been like if Roger Stern had written the regular West Coast Avengers series instead of Steve Englehart? Nothing against Englehart, but ... if Stern had written both series, he could have coordinated the titles so they felt like two parts of a whole, instead of Avengers and 'Avengers Junior.' Lots of people joke about the West Coasters being lame knock-offs of the 'real' Avengers, but Stern obviously meant them to be taken seriously. Ah well, we'll never know what might have been!" -- Mike S. Wilson

The stories reprinted here are classics in every sense of the word, while the art might not be to everyone's liking, I love it myself. The reproduction value is incredible as well. Yes this uses thinner paper but like I said in my Review of the Iron Man by Michelinie, Layton and Romita jr. omnibus , this actually makes it easier for me to read and carry. The books is sturdy with a sewn binding and won't fall apart on you anytime soon.
For extras the book contains the front and back cover for the first three hardcover collections in recolored art.
The West Coast Avengers/Avengers poster to promote the series, the cover of Amazing Heroes 72, Pages from the official handbook of the Marvel Universe, Marvel Age Annual 1 preview containing the comics discussion of this series and Marvel Age 29 cover and interview about the series. As well, like most marvel omnibus editions this contains pin-ups of the two versions of the Omnibus covers. All in all this is an amazing collection and well worth a purchase. Highly recommended.
