The Avengers

The Avengers
The Avengers – Cardinal – 300 pieces

I bought this to assemble and glue to hang in the bedroom of my youngest son. He is a self-professed Comic Book Nerd, and loves to talk about it for hours on end. Mostly he talks to himself, but the entire time I was putting this one together he stayed in the room to watch and I heard about The Avengers, and when it was released, and who played who in the movies, and who the original artist was, etc., etc. etc.

For. The. Entire. Time.

Thank goodness this went together quickly! 😉

The quality was good/fair, and I have to say I adored the artwork – especially the look of the hands holding the comic book. Even the frayed edges of the comic book look amazingly realistic, it seems almost like a Norman Rockwell with its amazing accuracy. I searched every inch of the box to find the name of the artist, but I found nothing at all; it would have been nice to give credit for the exceptional artwork.

This just made me smile. It makes me think of the old movie trailers that told us all about the thrills and chills we’d be experiencing if we saw a particular movie. I’m smiling now just typing this up. 🙂

    Very nice artwork, so unique. It’s wonderful to have good connections between parents and kids, especially when we become adults.

    Speaking of unique, I finished Eeboo’s UFO Victorian Ladies this weekend! Gorgeous and so inventive and quirky.

    Love the artwork! Looks like Steve Read’s style. Is Cardinal quality getting better? I hope so, some of the images are wonderful. I’m glad your son is so delighted with it.
