New Reader Guide: The Avengers

Welcome to the Austin Books & Comics New Reader Guide! We’re here to introduce some of our favorite books that you may not already know about, and maybe even help you find your next favorite comic series!

The Avengers

“And there came a day unlike any other, when earth’s mightiest heroes were united against a common threat! On that day the Avengers were born!” Since 1963, the Avengers have been Marvel’s premier super-team, fighting to protect the world, the universe, and occasionally all of reality.

In this guide you’ll find a collection of both classic and modern Avengers titles.

All titles are available at the store, and if not we will be happy to special order them for you!


The AvengersThe Avengers (1963)
Where it all began. Read the origins of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and their battles against the original foes that no one hero could withstand.

Avengers: Kree/Skrull WarKree-Skrull War (1972)
Written and drawn by comics legends Roy Thomas, Sal Buscema, Neal Adams, and John Buscema, the Kree-Skrull War is one of the most famous Avengers stories of all time. Centering around Kree hero Mar-Vell, sidekick extraordinaire Rick Jones, and the Avengers, this story brought the epic war between the Kree and Skrull empires to Earth. Notable for introducing the long-running romance between the Vision and Scarlet Witch, as well as the unprecedented massive scale and cast of characters.

Avengers-Defenders War (1973)
One of the earliest Marvel instances of superhero teams battling each other, the Avengers-Defenders War pitted the two teams against each other for possession of the Evil Eye, a cosmic artifact of immense power, only to discover that they had been manipulated by outside forces.
