...also, while, I'm promoting Marvel in the UK, it's worth mentioning that Season 2 of Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell comes to DVD and Blu-Ray next week. This season was never shown on terrestrial TV in Britain so I'm sure that, like me, many of you will be looking forward to buying it. It'll be available in the shops from Monday 5th December. Here's a nice big shot of the sleeve design to look out for...

Thanks for this Lew, I ve started picking up a monthly (or 2) UK Marvel again (rotating it between Avengers, MWOM and Marvel Legends) and have to say they are amazing value and great quality. Will be getting the Avengers out of this batch.

I prefer the UK reprints far more than the flimsy, advert-stuffed, glossy US versions, and we're only 12 months behind the US issues now too.

Strange that the Ms. Marvel story from the Gwenpool Holiday Special is in Avengers Universe when her solo series is usually in Mighty World of Marvel.

Lew Stringer said...

Not that strange considering that Ms.Marvel is an Avenger now and that it would have been odd to interrupt the regular series in MWOM for a filler.
