Graphic Novel Display: Avengers Assemble!

The Al Harris Library is home to a diverse collection of graphic novels. On May 4th, The Avengers featuring: Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye; will premiere on the big screen.

To coincide with the release of this blockbuster by Marvel Studios, we have assembled some of the graphic novels in our collection that feature those characters who comprise The Avengers.

The team debuted in The Avengers #1 (Sept. 1963), using existing characters created primarily by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby.

Although the concept has been modified, extrapolated and adapted into other media, the core group of characters has endured and remains as entertaining as ever!

Feel free to check out any of these books! Just ask the staff at the circulation desk for assistance.
