Marvel has announced that Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning‘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 aren’t an Avengers fan, a reprinting of the first issue will hit store shelves a week earlier with a variant cover.
“We want to give our fans the most Marvel value for their comic buying dollar in 2011,” said Senior Vice President of Sales, David Gabriel. “Adding 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 can’t seem to keep in stores for people to try.”
If you are an Avengers fan, this is a great way to check out Heroes for Hire or if you’ve been interested in both books but haven’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 Marvel’s books”¦
