The remainder of the book is no slouch either.
All told this is top-notch, must read Defenders. Can nearly say I loved The book kicks off with the title epic and it's a killer. Can nearly say I loved every minute of it. It took me a couple of issues to get into it but once I did I pretty much wolfed this down, nearly in one very long sitting. A really great reading experience. Oct 11, Brian Ingram rated it liked it. It was okay. Nice to fill in a missing part of my childhood, issue 96 the third of the 18 issues in this collection , was one of my first comics, and I always wanted to read the rest of the Six-Fingered Hand Saga. Overall, the writing ranged from meh to pretty good.
The art was mostly atrocious, to the point of distracting. Sinnott inking Perlin, which is most of the work, is just terrible. I'm fan of Perlin later in the series, but I've never liked Sinnott's lines. Incredibly inventive layouts It was okay. Incredibly inventive layouts and demonic creations whenever magic or hellish creatures are involved though, great work by Perlin.
The Bingham art on the Marvel Team-Up issue, as evidenced by the cover, could have been amazing, but it was inked by Colletta. The best part of the collection is definitely the Michael Golden covers throughout, he's a legend for a reason.

But also a surprising amount of horizontal plot-building and character development for every member of the team. DeMatteis manages to explore interesting psychological and spiritual questions while pretending to just write superhero adventure stories.

Damion Hellstrom goes on a quest to win back the favor of his father, Satan, which culminates in him holding a rock over a baby about to smash the child in order to win over his father. Thankfully, he decides not to.
I enjoyed it more after issue when Captain Amer Unfortunately, the Six-Fingered Hand saga didn't really work for me. I enjoyed it more after issue when Captain America, Spiderman, and the Beast show up at random intervals. Oct 17, Zack! Empire rated it really liked it Shelves: marvel-comics , epic-collection. This book is a really great example of how the current "writing for the trade" comics could improve in a lot of ways. We've got a continuous story here, the Six Fingered Hand, that unfolds over the course of several issues, but those issues are one and done stories.
It's not one long story that starts in issue "one" and ends in issue "six", it's several different stories that have elements and plot points carrying over. Reading it for that very reason felt like a breath of fresh air.

The actual s This book is a really great example of how the current "writing for the trade" comics could improve in a lot of ways. The actual story itself is pretty good as the Defenders deal with some mysterious group manipulating things from behind the curtain.
They can't seem to get a line on who the villain is, because they are always using lackeys. So, rather than the usual punchy mcpunchalot, we get some interesting stuff with Doctor Strange using his magical skills to try and get some leads, and his fellow Defenders using some detection skills.

The Defenders are a very different group from the Avengers or the Fantastic Four, so I really appreciate their stories being handled differently. I had never heard of Don Perlin before this book, but I'm definitely a fan now, specifically when Joe Sinnott is inking!

- Defenders Epic Collection Vol. 6: The Six-Fingered Hand Saga;
- The Story Of The Odyssey!

Don's art isn't too flashy, but he has a real talent for facial expressions, and this book has hundreds of demons, none of whom look alike! Overall, a really great read and I can easily see myself getting another Defenders Epic Collection.
