Random Comic Book Splash Page: Avengers #1

With the big movie officially hitting U.S. theaters today, I can't think of a more fitting tribute than Page 1 of the first Avengers comic book ever published. Here is Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers' splash to AVENGERS #1, coverdated September 1963. Dialogue by the book's editor, Stan Lee. Interesting how Kirby sets the stage with the Easter Island shot of Loki looking pensively at the heroes along the book's border.
