Every Issue of the Avengers

The covers from 570 issues of The Avengers, starting with issue #1, in September 1963. They are arranged in numerical order (note the strange issue #0 in the top left, published in 1999).


This image is really worth seeing in hi-res. Some of the covers are really spectacular, and some are downright ridiculous (The Avengers on the David Letterman show? Really?)
