Written by ROY THOMAS


Penciled by JOHN BUSCEMA, DON HECK & GEORGE TUSKA


Cover by DON HECK


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 ol' fir tree.

THE SENTRY TPB - NEW PRINTING
Written by PAUL JENKINS


Penciled by JAE LEE with PHIL WINSLADE, BILL SIENKIEWICZ,


RICK LEONARDI & MARK TEXEIRA


Cover by JAE LEE


The Sentry was a beloved hero, fighting crime before the Fantastic Four took their fateful trip to the stars. He fought all manner of costumed villainy, making the notion of costumed crimefighting accepted by New York's citizenry. He fought alongside the Fantastic Four, the Hulk and Spider-Man - the ideal they tried to measure up to. But today, no one remembers who he was. Bob Reynolds, teetering on the edge of both alcoholism and a failed marriage, wakes up to discover his true nature. He does so in time to begin rebuilding his life. The evil entity known as the Void is returning to Earth. Reynolds dons his Sentry uniform once more and must unravel the conspiracy to erase his memory from mankind before the Void arrives. Ready for the final battle, Marvel's premier hero is backed up by his closest friends: Mr. Fantastic, the X-Men's Angel, the Hulk and Spider-Man. Are they enough to stop an evil as powerful as the Void? Collecting the Sentry's five-issue mini-series and the five subsequent one-shots: SENTRY: FANTASTIC FOUR, SENTRY: X-MEN, SENTRY: SPIDER-MAN, SENTRY: HULK and SENTRY VS. THE VOID.
