Marvel's 70s underdogs take center stage in Defenders Omnibus Vol. 1 - on the way

Bronze-Age bounty: Nearly 800 pages of 1970s Defenders comics by whole tonna different Bullpenners. Out in April and available for pre-order now from Amazon


Doctor Strange, the Hulk, the Sub-Mariner, the Silver Surfer and Valkyrie. They are the dynamic Defenders, comics' greatest "non-team," and they do not rely on bylaws and butlers. They join together in moments of utmost crisis to face incomprehensible enemies like Dormammu, the Nameless One and the Enchantress. When they encounter heroes of a more conventional stripe, it's war-the watershed hero vs. hero Avengers/Defenders War, no less! This massive Omnibus also introduces Hawkeye, the Black Knight, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Son of Satan and Nighthawk as Defenders in classic adventures. It's a must-have edition collecting the complete Defenders runs of Roy Thomas, Steve Englehart and Len Wein in one beautifully restored volume.

Includes: Sub-Mariner (1968) 34-35; Marvel Feature (1971) 1-3; Defenders (1972) 1-19; Giant-Size Defenders (1974) 1-2; Avengers (1963) 116-118; material from Avengers (1963) 115
