*Marvel: Flush with success at the dawn of the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee had an epiphany: if Iron Man, Thor and company were successful on their own – how much better would they be together? Thus was born the Avengers, in which Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, Ant-Man and the Wasp were brought together by the fiendish machinations of Loki and an heroic dynasty began which continues to this day! The Avengers has lasted myriad issues, with a plethora of spin-offs, and a veritable regiment of members (not to mention an extremely lucrative movie franchise), but this is the comic in which it all began! This copy is in Fair condition, pence-printed. Generally structurally sound, it has considerable edge and spine wear, soft corners, and minor age-related discolouration. A large ‘2’ has been written on the cover in marker, as well as a smaller squiggle over the Hulk’s face. Staples still attached at cover and centrefold, all interior pages clean and unmarked. High resolution images are available on request. £650 is the price for this piece of comics history.
