Unfortunately, not all of your new would-be teammates are glad to see you! COLLECTING: CHAMPIONS 1-5.
Not just vol 1, but I read the entire run.
The art was pretty solid throughout, but the story was a mess, with nearly every issue ping ponging around to the middle of events happening in other series. In fact, I think all the major character development happened in the main line spider-man or avengers books, or even the universe wide cross over mini series.
I suggest completely skipping the collection of this run. From my understanding the next run that started publishing in 2019 stays on track much better.
