A few thoughts:
— The edition also has a Perez variant cover (above) that will only be available through the direct market.
— The omnibus is due Oct. 19. I don’t know how long this has been in the works, but it will be a pretty good salve for those who missed out on this month’s limited JLA/Avengers re-release. The run was last released as an omnibus in 2015.
— I spoke to the artist about his time on The Avengers during THE GEORGE PEREZ INTERVIEWS. Click here to check out what he had to say. It’s quite compelling.
