    As someone who collected the original Invaders series when I was younger, it should make for a fun read.

    This was a great series, particularly with Frank Robbins artwork. He was a very stylized artist -- but that style worked great with the WWII era.

    Hopefully, this omnibus will include...

    Avengers #71

    It would only make sense to include that issue if they include Invaders Annual #1 from 1977.

    Yes, both issues are complementary, showing the perspectives from each side.

    As a kid, I really didn't like Robbins stylized art, especially when you had amazing covers by guys like John Romita Sr., Jack Kirby and Gil Kane, and then you opend the book to find him (I also don't think Frank Springer did him any favors. IMHO, Vince Coletta was a better fit). Later on, as an adult, I've learned to appreciate more his art.

    Peace

    Glad to read SOME praise for Vince Colletta. I've only heard negative comments about the poor guy.

    I think it may depend on whose pencils he's inking. If he's inking a strong pencil artist like Robbins, he's a great fit.

    If you have him inking someone who isn't as firm and detailed with their pencil lines, it won't necessarily be as dynamic.

    Yeah. Vince Colletta didn't always work with everyone (most inkers don't). For exemple, I don't think he brought up the best in George Perez's work (I don't remember him ever working with Byrne. Did he?). But he was my favorite inker to work with, say, George Tuska. A lot of people don't like him over Kirby's pencils, I liked it.

    Peace
