Lately, whenever I see a book advertised as an 80-page Giant issue, I’m pretty skeptical as there have been a lot of story reprints in those collections. Marvel claims that the upcoming Avengers Academy Giant Size #1 features an all new story that looks at the next generation of Marvel heroes.
“This story brings together our most popular teen heroes and fan favorite creators for a truly giant-size story set right in the thick of the Marvel Universe at an incredibly affordable price.” said David Gabriel, Marvel’s SVP of Sales & Circulation. “There’s simply no publisher today putting out this amount of all-new material for such a great value.”
That value price? $7.99, something Marvel takes pride in pointing out that the cover price is still better than buying four of their competitor’s books.
