More than any other series, THE AVENGERS typified the Swinging Sixties. Now, 30 years later, THE AVENGERS has finally made it to the big screen. This book offers a uniquely comprehensive, humorous survey of the show's incarnations as well as a remarkably detailed episode guide to both THE AVENGERS and THE NEW AVENGERS (circa mid-seventies). The film and its production are examined and critical essays look at the history behind the cult.
