Two Sets Of Avengers Micro Comic Fun Packs To Be Released In 2015

San Diego, CA (October 11, 2014) – IDW Publishing and Marvel Comics continue New York Comic Con with one of the most fun announcements of the show as they give Avengers fans one more way to keep up with their favorite Marvel Super Hero team, in the form of The Avengers Micro Comic Fun Packs!

The Micro Comic Fun Pack line is a format that IDW pioneered, fast becoming a fan-favorite. They consist of full-length, pocket-sized comic-book story, along with exclusive back-up material ranging from character bios to “how-to-draw” material to landscape pages designed for sticker interaction, as well as a range of different collectibles like posters, stickers, standees, or tattoos. The Avengers Micro Comic Fun Pack release will include a unique comic, character bio, standee and poster for fans to collect. Micro Comic Fun Packs reach new audiences with great content and are available at both local comic shops and mass retail locations like Target and Toys R Us.

“This is a great new avenue for Marvel to get The Avengers into the hands of our younger fans,” says David Gabriel, SVP Sales and Marketing. “IDW and Marvel have created a fun new product for a younger audience and made it readily available within areas we typically do not have a strong presence in.”

The first set of The Avengers Micro Comic Fun Packs, featuring Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk, is planned for spring of 2015, with a second set due to be released for the 2015 holiday season.

“The Avengers are the perfect team for Micro Comic Fun Packs!” says IDW Director of Business Development, Jerry Bennington. “The team is big and bold, no matter how small the package you put them in. These packs will be loaded with all kinds of fun material—fans of The Avengers and new comic book fans alike will be buzzing with excitement when they see what we have planned.”
