AVENGERS  #1 (Feb 1998)
Marvel Comics
In an interview with Kurt Busiek, he said that it was George Perez that requested him as writer, despite the fact that, at the time, Busiek already had his hands full with Iron Man and Thunderbolts.

KB: ... They did, and they offered Avengers to [artist] George Perez, and George asked for me to write it. It was simply a matter of being in the right place at the right time. They wanted to restore the characters to their classic heights, and I was considered to be a guy who knew how to do that.
