Most annuals suck. I’m not even covering most of the annuals because they’re not part of the ongoing storyline.
But Avengers Annual #10 is the exception. for one thing, Cap gets the crap kicked out of him.
Written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by the legendary Michael Golden, this is the one that de-powered Ms. Marvel and introduced Rogue.
My copy is signed by Mr. Golden, who is a hell of a guy. One of my favorite comic books of all time.
