Media Release — Marvel is pleased to announce that Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level) and will return with Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #1 Second Printing Variant! From the acclaimed creative team of Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung, Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #1 is the first chapter in a story that will change the Marvel Universe forever! Since “M-Day” the whereabouts of the Scarlet Witch have remained a mystery, and there are some people who wish to keep it that way. However when Wiccan’s powers begin to rival those of the Scarlet Witch, he sets off on a Marvel Universe-spanning adventure that pits him against The Avengers!
Fans and critics agree, Avengers: The Children’s Crusade is a hit!
“It will surprise no one that Heinberg writes these people better than anyone else, and they all seem like real, living, breathing people. Living, breathing people who can change shape, use magic and run faster than the wind, obviously” – Kelvin Green, ComicsBulletin.com
“Cheung captures all the emotion and drama the script requires of him.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com
“Comics fact: There are some properties that seem to become synonymous with a single creator, and they never really seem to succeed in the same way without them. Case in point: Allan Heinberg and the Young Avengers.” – David Pepose, Newsarama.com
“Speaking of Cheung, boy, have I missed him on interiors…We’re reminded of the level of acting he provides these characters, not to mention the fluid layouts and delicious splash pages.” – Noel Bartocci, BrokenFrontier.com
“There’s energy in every one of Cheung’s pages.” – Greg McElhatton, ComicBookResources.com
Can Steve Rogers, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel keep Wiccan from discovering his true lineage? With a surprise appearance from Magneto, fans can’t miss Avengers: Children’s Crusade #1 Second Printing Variant!
