ALL STAR LEGENDS Presents : YOUNG AVENGERS ULTIMATE COLLECTION
We might already be into the second week of May but we definitely haven't forgotten about this month's Legend Pick! With the most recent series of Young Avengers just wrapping up and the continuing rise in popularity of Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), we thought we'd give you the chance to see where it all begins with Allen Heinberg and Jim Cheung's original series.
Starting around the same time as Bendis' original New Avengers run, Marvel announced a new title of next generation incarnations of some of our favourite Avengers characters. Initially sounding like it could of been carbon copies of heroes we already knew, the series quickly establishes itself as it's own book, with an excellently unique cast that find their own voices within the first few issues.
Heinberg from a background in TV writing, captures the tone and angst of these new teens perfectly, without for a moment playing the troubles that the cast face down in anyway. Despite being all characters based on archetypes we are already familiar with, it really is only in name alone that this new cast shows any similarities. It is incredible that in only 13 issues, Heinberg manages to set up such a rich and epic storyline that feels fitting of any classic Avengers team.
Cheung's artwork is always so wonderfully clean and is the absolute perfect choice to draw such a youthful cast. Coming up with exciting new costume designs, that play tribute to the original namesakes is no easy task either yet Cheung does so here, making it seem almost easy coming up with ironic outfits.
Well worth checking out, we are proud to introduce you to the Young Avengers!
As always, the ALL STAR LEGEND will be available for 30 days (or until stock sells out) at the discounted price. As this will be a limited stock promotion there is strictly "no holds" on the legend. First in, best read! No further discount applies to the book as there's a pretty good chance it will already be cheaper than the US cover price! The discount also only applies to the volume listed, not the entire series of trades.
If you have any questions, you know where to ask them. You can start to buy the Legend from this Wednesday the 14th of May.
All Star Legends. The legendary titles of the highest recommendation.
