    This issue is another tale of the 1M BC Avengers, this time focussing on Agamotto the 1st Sorceror Supreme. The modern Avengers only turn up on the last page.

    The Story: I liked the focus on Agamotto in this issue a lot. From a story perspective, the issue feels more like a prequel story than a continuation of the bigger plot, but it does work well with the bigger arc. The writing is great and I enjoyed the exploration of the relationships between the characters.

    The Art: Fiorelli delivers some great art in the issue. The visuals are beautiful and craft a great world for the characters.

    Avengers #62 offers up plenty of artistic flare, but little story progression with no real resolutions.

    In an issue that claims to conclude one story it barely connects to and plays as prologue to a new title altogether, readers are left to wonder why this is taking place in an issue labeled The Avengers #62. The years long ambition of telling the largest Avengers story ever has nearly reached its fruition but serves little purpose but to allow Ivan Fiorelli (and a variety of other impressive artists attached to the current series) to draw sprawling line ups of Marvel superheroes in a mystifying array of costumes. That certainly provides some solid pages in The Avengers #62, especially with the Avengers from 1,000,000 B.C. displayed, but it provides little return on pages of overstretched reminders, exposition, and a getting the band back together sequence. The most promising element found in the issue is that it promises some sort of ending is finally in sight for a narrative grown far too large with too little purpose.
