1989 - Acts of Vengeance

Just a heads up to save your pennies. In March next year, the Acts of Vengeance Omnibus will hit the stands. Over 700 pages of Marvel 1980s goodness. It was a company-wide crossover that brought the 1980s to an end and ushered forth the 1990s.

More details ...
Two dozen of Marvel's top talents set more than 40 super heroes against at least as many super villains in the premier crossover event of the 1990s! Plus: the debut of the New Warriors! The destruction of Avengers Island! Spider-Man's cosmic power and the madness of the Scarlet Witch! A three-headed monster, a three-faced robot, a trip through the worlds of What If? and more! Special guest-appearance by Abraham Lincoln!

  1. Whoa that is really on the cusp of both eras. I thought that was 100% 90's. Good way to end the 80's and usher in the 90's. Thanks for posting this. I am definitely getting it. I started reading in the mid to late 80's but the 90's (unfortunately) is my major comic collecting era. And while this was not the best Event they did it really stuck in my mind.

  2. Thanks for the comment. Yeah, it wasn't the best event, but it was a fun one that had our heroes face off against villains they had never come across yet.

  3. The crazy thing is that I think I have all but maybe 2 of those issues in the Omnibus.
