The real Avengers assemble! Extraordinary crimes against the people and the state must be avenged, and two such people step up — John Steed, top professional, and Emma Peel, talented amateur, together known as The Avengers.
Emma Peel and John Steed continue avenging in new adventures written by Mark Waid for BOOM! Studios, giving this iconic team the attention befitting the spy team supreme. This time around, the Hellfire Club has returned but they no longer pine for the glory days of the past but instead hearken to a new era, leather required! Once again, as Steed so quaintly says, "Mrs. Peel, we’re needed!
I trust Mark Waid to do this right, and while I’ve always wished to see them illustrated by Neal Adams, Jim Steranko, Walt Simonson, or John Byrne, there are many artists working today I know will do their adventures justice. Otherwise, Steed and Mrs. Peel will be avenged by fans extraordinaire!
