     Avengers 319-324, back in the summer of 1980, was a biweekly storyline titles "The Crossing Line", featuring the Avengers, Canada's Alpha Flight, and one of my favorites, the U.S.S.R.'s Supreme Soviets (renamed the People's Protectorate by this time). The villain was fairly forgettable, but for me, this was a great wide-open story (penned by Fabian Nicieza, who I knew next to nothing about then but who'd become a favorite of mine a couple decades later), blessed with Paul Ryan's art. A number of these pages have been for sale and I finally bit on this one, featuring members of all the teams, including good images of Quasar (another favorite), Perun, Fantasma, and the Dynamo. A nice memento/reminder of a storyline I particularly enjoy, and this is one of those pages where its much improved over the colored vesion. I bought this on EBay in December, 2005 from the inker. By the by, the book itself credits Tom Palmer for the inks, but there's a correction to those credits in issue 327.
