Can the team save the day without tearing each other apart and who else will join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest?  Get the full story behind  Nick Fury Nick Fury led Avengers Initiative as they trek across the globe saving the entire Marvel Universe from peril, only in the action-packed Avengers 1959 #1 (of 5)!

I read New Avengers monthly so I have been following the side story with Nick Fury, Dominic Fortune, Sabertooth, Namora and Kraven the Hunter hunting down the Red skull and his Nazi remnants in the years after the War. After I read the first part of the story I went on twitter and asked Marvel to please let Cheykin write and draw a 50’s Avengers series…. I guess they listened.

Howard Chaykin had this to say:

“I’m grabbing what feels like a brass ring here, with the opportunity to do an untold story of the lost years of the Marvel Universe. In a follow up to the sensational stuff laid out by Brian Bendis in NEW AVENGERS, we’ll follow Nick Fury and his Avengers around the world as they track down and take down super powered survivors of the Third Reich–as their ever effort is countermanded by a mysterious agency with a dark agenda of its own.”

Count me in!
