We've got a trailer for Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena's Avengers #1, in stores today from Marvel Comics!
Sure, this reporter may still be butthurt over what the Avengers did to Cyclops, who was right, goddamnit, in Avengers vs. X-Men, but when Marvel puts superstar writer Johnny Hickman and superstar artist Jerry Opena on the flagship Avengers title, we can't help but freak out like thirteen-year-old girls who are freaking out over... something that a thirteen-year-old boy could just as easily be freaking about, because we're not sexist, so don't go saying so on your Tumblr, you jerks.
In any case, we're really excited about Avengers #1, which is on sale today, December 5th. Check out the trailer, which is narrated by a young intern who sounds very mature for his age, and then pick up Avengers #1 at your favorite comic book shop or digital app later today!
Here's the press release and video:
