After the huge success of the Avengers series, in 1967 Marvel decided it was time to release an annual edition of the comics. As it turned out, they were onto something, as the Avengers Annual series is considered one of the greatest volumes in Marvel history. The first issue was released in September 1967 and it featured a 70+ page book with appearances by Iron Man, Quicksilver, Thor, Goliath, Scarlet Witch, the Wasp, Captain America and Hawkeye together. Some stories in the series featured the Old Avengers team (Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man and the Wasp), while others featured the team commonly referred to as the New Avengers (with the additions of Captain America, Hank Pym’s Goliath form, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch). The stories were exciting and a huge success amongst Marvel fans, and the books continued to release every September until 1994, when the series was finally closed following the release of issue #23 in July.
