STEVE GERBER'S ICONIC DEFENDERS RUN CONCLUDES IN MASTERWORKS!

Steve Gerber’s Defenders run comes to its revolutionary conclusion in the latest Marvel Masterworks extravaganza! Gerber consistently broke the boundaries of what a super-hero comic could be and his Headmen saga stands as one of the high points in a celebrated career. From the Elf With a Gun to Bambi and the Bozos, Gerber wove together an unlikely cast with a challenging critique of the era’s culture. His stories would influence a generation of new writers, and with artwork by the stellar team of Sal Buscema and Klaus Janson, Defenders is an indisputable ’70s Marvel masterpiece. And we’ve topped it off with the classic Defenders/Howard the Duck Marvel Treasury Edition team-up. Need we say more? Reserve your copy today.
