Avengers and Secret Wars



Free is good.  Free stuff is better.  Free stuff that you can use and like is the best.

I like Marvel Comics.  Marvel Comics likes its fans.  Marvel Comics is giving a way two cool freebies.


One features a certain blockbuster Marvel Comics’ movie coming out May 1st.  The other previews Marvel Comics’ upcoming summer crossover event.


The Avengers Magazine features a full color photo on its cover of the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie.  Inside Marvel Fans learn all about the 50 Greatest Avengers Stories of All Time.  


There’s also a piece on the Avengers big three: Thor, Iron Man and Captain America.  Learn about the co-creator of the Avengers: Jack Kirby and Avengers Year One.


The other current Avengers key members are spotlighted and former Avengers writers reminisce and remember their stints on the titles.


The Avengers Silver Age artist John Buscema is paid tribute, the Avengers’ deadliest foes get their due and current Avengers artists showcase their work.


A sneak peek at the new Avengers movie is included as a full Roll Call of ALL the Avengers members.


Did I mention the magazine is free and it is packed with art!


Secret Wars is the latest Marvel Comics summer crossover event.  The free comic book includes snips of each new series spawned from the event.  If that doesn’t whet you whistle for more art and stories then it’s probably best you take yourself over to Marvel’s “Distinguished Competition.”
