Need to brush up on ‘The Avengers’? Marvel Entertainment has you covered as they are poised to release an enormous Avengers collection before the release of Marvel Studios’ ‘Avengers 4‘ next May. This release will be an 11-volume slipcase that has many of the most important Avengers stories from the past 55-years. Titled ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Box Set Slipcase’ we’ll see Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s first Avengers comic included as well as the first six issues of the current volume. While this collection will start with the original Avengers line up, you’ll be able to see how drastically the roster evolves over the years.
The breakdown as to what will be in the ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Box Set Slipcase’ is:
- Avengers by Lee & Kirby (#1-16 of the original run)
- Avengers: The Kree/Skrull War (#89-97)
- Avengers/Defenders War (#115-118, as well as Defenders #8-11)
- Avengers: Celestial Madonna (#129-135 and Giant-Size Avengers #2-4)
- Avengers: The Korvac Saga (#167-168, 170-177 and Thor Annual #6)
- Avengers: Under Siege (#270-277)
- Avengers: The Gatherers Saga (#343-344, 348-349, 355-363, 372-374 and material from #364 and 377)
- Avengers: The Morgan Conquest (1-4 of the third volume)
- Avengers Forever (all 12 issues of the series of the same name)
- Avengers: Disassembled (#500-503 and the Avengers Finale special issue)
- Avengers: The Final Host (#1-6 of the current series, along with material from this year’s Free Comic Book Day 2018: Avengers/Captain America issue).
This one is going to be just for the pure fans though as early pricing points it to be running at $500. This feels high for a collection, even one this large, so you may see that fluctuate before it is released.
