When Marvel released the Season One line of original graphic novels, the likes ofFantastic Four, Spider-Man, X-Men, Hulk and more, there was one franchise curiously missing. Where in the world was Avengers Season One?
Turns out it exists, but is not being distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors, is not available digitally on ComiXology, is not even purchasable on Amazon. Not yet, anyway.
It is being published exclusively for Walmart, and made available as a double pack with the Avengers movie on Blu Ray.
Usually these kind of giveaways are mini-comics. This appears to be a full length original graphic novel, albeit from an unknown creative team.
It’s also available in the UK from Walmart owned Asda, which gives us the description for Avengers Season One;
The all-new and exclusive graphic novel, modernising the formative first days of these super-hero icons that defined pop culture. A hidden foe manipulates the fledging Avengers from the shadows, meticulously sowing the seeds of discord and mistrust but only the smartest among them will see through the deception, and it’s not who you think!
