Your Guide to the Avengers

Posted by Dan Wallace on

The Avengers have been saving the world since 1963 with members like Captain America going back as far as the 1940s. Every month, there's at least one new Avengers comic to enjoy plus more titles featuring individual team members but where should you begin?

A subscription is by far your best bet as you'll save 30% off every issue, never miss one, and a couple of issues will quickly get you up to speed.

Graphic novels are also an ideal choice as you get a complete story under one cover. We've picked out some of the best here so new readers can start off right and those more familiar with the Avengers can catch up on adventures they may have missed.

 

AVENGERS: THE KREE/SKRULL WAR TP

Those eternal intergalactic enemies, the merciless Kree and the shape-changing Skrulls, have gone to war - and our planet is situated on the front lines! Can Earth's Mightiest Heroes bring about an end to the fighting before humanity becomes a casualty of war? And what good are even a dozen super-powered champions against the vast military machines of two of the great empires of the cosmos? The key to victory lies with the expatriate Kree Captain Mar-Vell - and his human host, honorary Avenger Rick Jones! Featuring the trend-setting artwork of Neal Adams, the Kree/Skrull War is universally acknowledged as one of the finest and most important sagas in the Marvel canon.

The Old Order Changeth - more than you ever suspected! For the first time ever, learn what really happened all those years ago when the founding Avengers turned over their membership to a set of new recruits.
