In 2008 we saw the return of Alex Ross to the publisher who put him in the spotlight, Marvel Comics. Again, Ross and his inseparable partner-in-crime, Jim Krueger are bringing an extraordinary tale with these classic characters and the interior art of Steve Sadowski. The 12-part maxi series Avengers/Invaders will bring together Marvel's premiere team, The Avengers, with its predecessors, The Invaders, the classic super heroes from the 1940's and 50's which include Captain America, Prince Namor and the original Human Torch. This old group travel in time to our era to find out that the Marvel Universe is not what it used to be and that Cap died a horrible death.
