This Definitive Marvel Age Avengers Anthology contains AVENGERS #1–20, as well an exclusive foreword by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

For Avengers. Vol. 1. 1963–1965, TASCHEN collaborated with Marvel and the Certified Guaranty Company to photograph and digitally remaster each page, using modern retouching techniques to correct problems with the era’s printing.
