Avengers West Coast book . See how one of comicdom's most recognizable talents remade the. John Byrne made the West Coasters into the premier Avengers during this period. As he was writing both Avengers titles at the time, he was able to reshape the entire Avengers concept over the course of about a year. It was also influential on Bendis's Avengers Disassemble story arc, the Avengers' darkest day, several I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I'm a Byrne-victim.

The main problem with the West Coast Avengers series was that the drawings were so up and down. Fortunately, in Vision Quest the artistry was really strong making the volume a keeper.

Vision Quest includes issues 42-50 where mysterious groups kidnap first the Vision and then the Scarlet Witch. In the meantime, U.S. Agent was forced upon the Avengers by the government leading to continual conflict with Hawkeye the group’s leader. The Great Lakes Avengers also make an appearance.

Overall the Vision and Scarlet Witch story is strong and the drawings are on point making this a strong volume to pick up.
Before this 80's work- Byrne drew the Avengers in the late 70's, issues 181-191, with 188-191 being some of my all-time favorites. After his great work with DC's Man of Steel in the mid-80's, he returned to Marvel's Avengers in '89, this time with this west coast team.

Highlights here for me...
*Issues 43 & 44- Hawkeye & Mockingbird reunited. And the west coast team searches for & finds the Vision. I've never seen Vision quite like this! The team is in turmoil, and the government intervenes, bringing them a special new member. Features Hawkeye, Wonder Man, Hank Pym, Wasp, Tigra, Scarlet Witch & more.
*Issue 45- U.S. Agent & the new Vision. And Hawkeye quits the team?
*Issue 46- The Great Lakes Avengers. 'Nuff said!
*Issue 50- The *original* Human Torch! It's the return of a Golden Age great, and he actually joins the team.

I love Byrne's artistic vision, the Avengers in general, and especially the Avengers west coast team in the '80s. Here we get all three! This isn't usually considered his best work, but it *is* among my favorites. The clarity & consistency in his artistic vision never ceases to amaze me. In this paperback he touches on story points he previously visited in titles like Avengers & Fantastic Four. He especially, continually references the Invaders all throughout his career, and I actually appreciate these brief flashbacks.

Visually speaking, maybe the biggest standout feature here is the varied and/or inconsistent inking(!). It's amazing how the overall visual style of Byrne's run seems to change from issue to issue here. This might be the main reason why this isn't usually considered Byrne's best work, but I actually love these issues, in part, *because* of the various visual styles on display. I guess only Byrne & Machlan can say for sure why the visual style keeps changing all throughout this great '89 series.

Included in this volume:
*Issues #42 to #48 & #50- John Byrne writes & pencils; Mike Machlan inks
*Issue #49- John Byrne writes, pencils & inks

P.S. And check out this definitive career interview with Byrne: Modern Masters, Vol. 7: John Byrne. With great art & information, it's highly recommended!
John Byrne was throught the late seventies to the mid nineties one of the best writer artists in American comic books. His collaboration with Chris Claremont on the X-Men and his solo runs on Fantastic Four and Superman as well as a shorter time on Action Comics are the highlights of his career but his time spent on West Coast Avengers was solid. In this volume he makes major changes to the character of the Vision and his relationship to his wife the Scarlet Witch which has ramificatioins several years down the road. The art is good and the stories are solid especially the main ones centered around the Vision Quest I recommend this volume and its companion Darker than Scarlet to any Avengers fan and to any fan of American superhero comics
West Coast Avengers was my favorite as a kid. This was nice to go back and see, but as much as I like Byrne's art, his story telling is not very good. Hawkeye is very underused in this arc. Byrne brings in the heroes he prefers, and elevated Hank Pym to leader, unofficially. I preferred the Visions new look, but hated US Agent in this. It's a decent arc, but doesn't reinvent the wheel.
Interesting stories with some good art, but you can see Byrne starting to lose it from panel to panel. I'd say it's important if you're an "Avengers" fan, but the events in these stories have been retconned several times.
John Byrne takes the WCA to new places and the ride is a doozie. Wish he had done a longer run...
I recently purchased this book hoping to get some further knowledge on older Avengers story arcs. And boy am I happy I did!

The way Byrne writes, and draws, these characters is fantastic. Hawkeye is just as angsty as ever, Scarlet Witch and Vision's relationship is written perfectly, AND...you get The Great Lakes Avengers!

I can't say enough good things about this book, and other reviewers have said plenty about its content. Just know that if you like the Avengers you should buy this and the follow up John Byrne Avengers West Coast book, Darker than Scarlet.
Great storyline and artwork!
