The year was 1967, and what a year it was to be an Avengers fan! Why? Because Earth’s Mightiest Heroes gained one of Earth’s Mightiest artists—the one and only John Buscema! If an artist like Big John teaming up to create the titanic Thomas/Heck/Buscema triumvirate isn’t enough to wet your whistle for amazing tales of the adventurous Avengers, then get a load of the manic Marvel Masterworks they have in store for you:

Prince of Power, Hercules goes mano-a-mano with the Dragon Man; Captain America mixes it up with the Russian Red Guardian for the Red, White and Blue; the entire dag-blamed Avengers battle the Super-Adaptoid; Goliath and the Wasp face a blast from their shrinking past as they fight the Whirlwind. And a hero redeems the role of the Black Knight only to have the Avengers lose their teammates, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, to Magneto and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants—it’s a cosmic balance, bub! And let us not forget, Avengers past and present joining together in combat against a sextet of baddies built up by the Mandarin. It’s a story so huge it could only be contained in the first-ever Avengers Annual!

Remember, True Believer, there’s no guarantee that a yuletide gift this hot won’t ignite, so don’t forget to fireproof the fir tree.
