First Look: Avengers Vs. Pet Avengers #1

As if #mrvlcats wasn't enough (and I'm guessing it wasn't, because it paying nothing), Chris Eliopoulos pushes onward with yet more Pet Avengers stories.  Nothing makes a book better than when the creators are devoted and having fun all the same time.  On October 20, you'll be able to pick up Avengers Vs. Pet Avengers #1, but in the meantime, check out how good Ig Guara's art looks! The colors by Chris Sotomayor and Chad Fidler also really pop. Give you kids this book, and they'll be spoiled by the fantastic art.


  1. Oh, iFanboy faithful, does that one salamander have a robotic arm?  What up wit’ dat?

  2. there’s no logic reason why this book should look so good 

  3. logical

  4. Why not?

  5. Check out the purple pants! Loving the salamanders (espicially the one with the robotic arm) and does that lynx/cougar/i’mreallynotsurewhat have some sort of psychic powers? Man this is gonna be aaaaaawesome!

  6. I hate “getting into it”, but there is a logical reason. We need to reach out to new readers now. If we don’t, we’re in danger of seeing comics die out. It’s totally fine that you may not like this book…it may not be for you, but why can’t books for new readers and children look good. Don’t you think that giving kids a book that they might think is cool and possibly get them hooked on comics a good thing? Doesn’t providing comics that bring in new readers which keeps the industry healthy a good thing for you as well? One hand washes the other. Snubbing your nose at books like this is cutting your nose off to spite your face. Building readership is a good thing for everybody–we continue to work and make comics that we love to do and you continue to read and enjoy the books you love. Instead of questioning a book like this, how about buying it and giving it to a kid you know? Not for me, but for all of us.

  7. @Elipopoulos – The lack of younger readers is a serious issue in comicbooks today and I’m glad to see a creator (you) being so pro-active and putting his money where his mouth is. Great work and I hope more follow.

     Oh and your work is fantastic!

  8. @Conor: i was just commenting on the quality of a book about pets. it’s pretty awesome 

  9. I think the reason the one salamander (I think it’s actually a frog) has a mechanical arm is that it’s Bucky Cap. There was some preview for this somewhere earlier this year.

  10. Looks great. I have to get this, you know, for my daughters.

  11. Ha! That’s bad-ass! 🙂

  12. By the way, that was not meant as an attack or anything, just as a plea as to why we need to reach out. I am truly concerned and want to grab new readers.

    And, yes, if you read Dogs of Summer, you’d know it was Bucky. But that will be explained in the book. 🙂

  13. Okay, I’m going to get 2 for my kids. Screw sharing when it looks so damn beautiful.

  14. He’s wearing pants!

  15. Frog Thor, Dragons, and Fing Fang Foom! Oh my!

  16. The 6th page is too good.

  17. This comic needs an ape with Iron Man armor.

  18. @Eliopoulos

    I had no idea that you posted on here! I just want to mention how much I liked your Franklin Richards books.

  19. @Eliopoulos: To be honest, I read Dogs of Summer, but I totally forgot about Bucky Cap.  (Damn my swiss cheese memory.)  I’ll make sure I go back and re-read it.  And, thank you for making Pet Avengers one of the best books on the market (no hyperbole.)  I was just listening to the 11 O’Clock podcast about getting new readers interested in comics.  I would definitely recommend Pet Avengers and Pet Avengers Unleashed to anyone with kids looking to get them interested in comics.  Best In Class, sir.

  20. Thanks, guys!
