Marvel has announced that Dan Abnett and Andy Lanningâ€™s Heroes For Hire #1 will be reprinted in full and at no additional cost within Avengers #10, on sale February 23, 2011. This series features an eclectic mix of heroes including Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, and Iron Fist. If you arenâ€™t an Avengers fan, a reprinting of the first issue will hit store shelves a week earlier with a variant cover.
â€œWe want to give our fans the most Marvel value for their comic buying dollar in 2011,â€ said Senior Vice President of Sales, David Gabriel. â€œAdding the first issue of Heroes for Hire to one of our top titles, for free, is the best opportunity for fans and retailers to spread the word about a book that we just canâ€™t seem to keep in stores for people to try.â€
If you are an Avengers fan, this is a great way to check out Heroes for Hire or if youâ€™ve been interested in both books but havenâ€™t given them a try, then this is a buy one get one free sort of situation. Otherwise, this is just another second printing of one of Marvelâ€™s booksâ€¦
