STEVE GERBER JOINS THE DEFENDERS!

The Dynamic Defenders, comicdom’s #1 non-team, are back and they’ve never been better! Hulk, Dr. Strange, Sub-Mariner, Valkyrie and Nighthawk join up with Luke Cage, Daredevil and Son of Satan to take on the likes of the Wrecking Crew, Satannish and Asmodeus.

Then, spinning out of a storyline in Marvel Two-In-One, comes Steve Gerber! Deconstructing genre conventions and adding a healthy dose of absurdity, Gerber’s innovative Defenders run turned the expectations of readers on their heads, so suitably we’re including the original Atlas Era appearances of the Headmen: Gorilla Man, Jerold Morgan and Chondu the Mystic! Topped off with a Giant-Size battle royale with the Grandmaster and a Squadron Sinister rematch, this one is a Marvel Masterworks if there ever was!

Collecting THE DEFENDERS (1972) #17-21, GIANT-SIZE DEFENDERS (1974) #2-4, MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE (1974) #6-7 and material from MYSTERY TALES (1952) #21, WORLD OF FANTASY (1956) #11 & TALES OF SUSPENSE (1959) #9
