CBR Review: Avengers & the Infinity Gauntlet #1

I recently reviewed Avengers & the Infinity Gauntlet #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Marvel’s recent initiative of taking classic stories and redoing them in short, all ages books is one that makes sense in theory. A lot of those stories were done in styles that aren’t appealing to a contemporary audience or are bogged down in continuity, so updating them in a fresher style and setting them apart from heavy continuity concerns makes sense. For fans of the originals, the updated versions are a chance to experience that loved story again from a different perspective and see what choices the creators make in reimagining it. When Avengers & the Infinity Gauntlet was announced, co-writer Brian Clevinger said that he wanted to avoid rereading the original Infinity Gauntlet story, so his version can stand on its own."
