With the splash the Avengers made this summer in the box office, As well as the general success of many of the recent super-movies, Comic book sales are actually on the rise for the first time in a couple decades. This growth is presumed to be from new fans, who watched the movie, liked a certain character, then started reading comics to stay in touch with that character’s on-going story.
Right now is the perfect time to start reading the comic “Avengers Assemble” if you were a fan of the movie! The roster of Avengers in comics has changed over the years, but, in this iteration, the line-up is the same as the movie: Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.
Also, if you stayed after the credits, you saw a certain new villain chatting with Loki. His name is Thanos and he makes his appearance in this month’s upcoming issue! You can either just pick up issue #3 which is out now, or wait unto #4 this month and jump on with the story of Thanos vs the Avengers, or get caught by grabbing issues 1-3, which pick up right from the movie.
This will not mean much to you if you aren’t already into comic books, but the writer right now is one of the best in the industry! Brian Bendis is known for doing incredible stories for spiderman and the Avengers. Brian even had his own self-published projects like ‘Brilliant’ and ‘Powers’ which are really fun and creative books in their own right!
TwentyList will start covering this book, starting in issue 4, this month so you can follow along with us.
