The End Of An Era For The New Avengers

Marvel is pleased to announce that New Avengers: Finale #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level) and will return with New Avengers: Finale #1 Second Printing Variant! Superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis and renowned artist Bryan Hitch bring readers into the light of The Heroic Age! The New Avengers may have made it through Siege, but they will need to come face to face with their arch enemy before they can call it a day! With two new covers featuring the lush interior pages of Bryan Hitch, and with a retrospective of the New Avengers throughout the ages from some of the industry’s top artists, fans can’t miss this!

See what fans and critics have to say about New Avengers: Finale #1:

“Bryan Hitch is a fantastic choice of artist to accompany this celebration. Much of the issue involves widescreen action and punchy, dynamic splashes, all of which Hitch excels at.” —Bryan Joel, IGN.com

“Bryan Hitch is the last in a long line of all-star artists to work on “New Avengers” and he really makes the issue breathe. He has a habit of taking an issue and expanding scenes, and that shows here as the normally relaxed Bendis-written comic is even more so here, and it helps with the celebratory feeling of the issue.” —Chad Nevett, Comicbookresources.com

“If this is what we have to look forward to for the rebooted Avengers lineup, I’m thinking that the Heroic Age might be a place that we all might want to live in for awhile.” —David Pepose, Newsarama.com

“This was the series where Bendis shaped the fate of the Marvel Universe, which is the big dog in the comics industry.” —Josh Flanagan, iFanboy.com

Now that the smoke of Siege has cleared, will the New Avengers be able to triumph and usher in a new era? Find out in New Avengers: Finale #1 Second Printing Variant!
