Thunderbolts Annual #1

Of course, they're gonna need a pretty special arsenal for that.

Young Avengers #14 - Resolution Part 1


RESOLUTION (1 of 2)

We gather in a night club, and have a string of connected and overlapping stories starring our cast. It's a completely and unprecedented approach to a story in comics history. There are no parallels. We refuse to accept it.

Team Young Avengers are joined by an all-start cast of some people we really like. Each individual section gets one individual artist. It's a metaphor, probably.

It's been one hell of a year. In two episodes, one before and one after the new year, the Young Avengers get resolution. You guys do as well.
