CBR Review: Avengers 1959 #1

I recently reviewed Avengers 1959 #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Picking up almost immediately after the New Avengers story that introduced Nick Fury’s heretofore unknown 'Avengers,' Avengers 1959 #1 features Howard Chaykin writing and drawing the comic and -- do I even need to continue the review? Chaykin writing and drawing this book is the reason why most are either interested in it or avoiding it. The legendary artist’s recent mainstream revival has produced work that has split readers on its merits. What’s hard to deny is that Avengers 1959 is a project that suits Chaykin perfectly. With the original concept stemming from him, it only makes sense for him to handle the follow-up mini-series."
