 The first in a series of all-new original graphic novels! An abomination, long thought buried, has resurfaced in a war-torn land. But now it wears an American flag. Faced with another nightmare reborn, Captain America will not stand for yet more death at the hands of a ghost from his past. Haunted by his greatest shame, Thor must renew the hunt for a familiar beast. At their side, an assemblage of allies united to end the threats no one of them could face alone. They are soldiers.

Warren Ellis helms the first of what could potentially be a line of stand alone hardcovers that aim to blend the best of both the movie and comic world together in one gloriously violent and shiny package! After Ellis' last run on the Secret Avengers, I'm really excited to see what he is capable of doing with the Avenger's big 3!!

And so, another beloved series comes to an end prematurely...It's a sad day when a critically acclaimed book that is loved by many readers featuring a character not in any other comic, gets cancelled while Batman adds another book to his belt. Seriously, this book had heart--from the character to the creators who labored over her glorious adventures through space and time to worlds hitherto unknown. It made me laugh, made me smile, made me shout for blood!!! In short, it was fun. Something so many comics have lost as of late.
