- Full Description
Iron Man! Thor! The Hulk! Wasp! Ant-Man! These five iconic characters made their debut as the first incarnation of the most exciting super-team ever assembled in September 1963, in The Avengers No. 1. From Captain America to Black Panther to Beast and Mockingbird and She-Hulk, they gained and lost members, added former super villains to the team, and fought every threat imaginable—each one bigger than the last.
From the West Coast to the Secret teams (not to mention the Dark and Young and Mighty and All-New), The Little Book of Avengers is your definitive guide to the greatest super hero team the world has ever seen!
With 192 pages of images, and text by Roy Thomas, your bargain-priced comprehensive guide to this most unusual, ever-changing team-up book ever!
The Avengers began with The Hulk as a member, but he was so unpredictable and always-angry, he finally took a hike. So in #4, Captain America made his first appearance in comics since the 1940s. And that issue became a major part of the first Cap film that was so good.
Filled with fun covers, splash pages, inside pages, plus special items like pin-up pages, poster art, original art, animation pencil cells...
Roy of course was once Stan Lee's right hand man and editor, and today continues to both write occasionally for comics, as well as edit the fine magazine Alter Ego. If there is anyone who can do justice to distilling this fine title into a comprehensive book, Roy is the man.
Lots of unusual art here, with work by Jack Kirby, Sal Buscema, Alex Ross, Don Heck, Gene Colan, Herb Trimpe, Neal Adams et al. Roy does a fine job of choosing unusual images.
