Setting the bar: Avengers cover art

For a long time, Marvel was dominated by their merry mutants. Before that however, the Avengers were the major force. And now, they’ve regained their throne.

But as good as the series is now, without hindsight it will be impossible to really judge how great their reign has been. Looking back at the Avengers run of the early and mid 1970’s shows that they had their highs and lows, but all in all, set a new tone for art, creativity, and fast paced action. As a nod to that, I picked a handful of covers from the series between issue #50 and #100 to see just how great, ridiculous, terrible and downright perfect comic covers can be. Enjoy.

Avengers #93

aka… Thor smash Fantastic Four. Cap approve.

Avengers #71

aka… this “A” stands for wackass shield!

Avengers #57

Classic.

Avengers #78

“Okay hear me out. His name is Man-Ape and he’s totally NOT offensive.”

Avengers #98

Whoever loses ends up with War-Hawk’s facial hair styling. Fight hard, brave soldiers.

Avengers #89

Classic x2.

Avengers #63

Underrated cover. Why isn’t this on a t-shirt yet?

Avengers #80

aka… Thor stupid.

Avengers #77

There are definitely far too few comics discussing super-heroes hired for manual labor these days.

Avengers #83

Classic x3. Fitting that Mr.BeathisWife is the main dude being womp’d on here.
