Assistant Editors, Assemble!

Good news: according to this web post, Marvel is bringing back Assistant Editors’ month!

It’s kinda self-explanatory, but back in 1984 the Assistant Editors on the bulk of the titles took over for one month and id some rather oddball (and quite awesome) stuff.  The following week everything was back to normal.

As a kid, I loved it.  The Captain America issue was my personal favorite, but most people remember the Avengers appearing on Late Night With David Letterman.

Now, the bad news.  It appears that will it will occur inside of a span of time measured on the calendars as a month, it will not be across multiple titles.

This event will only be two one shots.

Which, is kinda lame.  Let’s be honest.  Most Marvel comics are being “written for the trade” anyhow.  These issues could easily be ‘removed’ and collected under their own trade.  No harm.  No foul.

But what do I know.  I just buy comics.

Two one shots, 40 pages each.  80 pages total.  That’s not all that much room to do something that wouldn’t otherwise have ended up in Marvel Comics Presents or some other anthology.

However!  I remain optimistic.  I’ll purchase both one shots enthusiastically and read them and then decide how I feel about this experiment.

Anyhow.  Here’s the Avengers with Dave.
