The big story this week is that AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON has opened in North America! Go see it! Go see it again! For full details (spoiler alert!) click on the big picture of Ultron up at the top of this page!
Meanwhile, aeveral comics are coming to an end to make way for SECRET WARS and two final issues are profiled this week. ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA #6 sees Cap’s victory over Hydra’s mad plan in time for the new event!
Then Avengers Aficionado Rob Johnson contributes AVENGERS (2012) #44 wherein the world is coming to an end; in fact, a lot of worlds are!
Rob also contributes AVENGERS #204-206 from 1981! Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take on the Yellow Claw (Marvel's first Fu Manchu rip-off) and the little-known Thermal Man (who thinks he's hot stuff)!
And for no reason whatsoever, I’ve popped in SILVER SURFER (1987) #36, the issue’s intriguing cover leads to a hilarious cosmic comic contest between SS and...I won’t say who. And Cap has a small, if unnecessary, cameo.

As the massive creature Banner has been a menace to humanity as well as one of its greatest heroes and in that respect has served with distinction among Marvel's premiere champions. Celebrating his look in those comics comes an incredible brand new Fine Art Statue, HULK CLASSIC AVENGERS. The massive Hulk leaps straight off the pages of Avengers comics in all of his green skinned glory. The powerfully built hero stands on cracked and broken terrain, flexing his enormous muscles as he prepares to charge once more into battle against those who would threaten the Earth. Hulk has a wide-legged stance, balancing
