Interesting Tidbit #2: While mini-series with four to six issues seem the best investment for comic publishers, twelve issue maxi-series were quite popular during the 1980s. Many unforgettable and influential series came out during this decade such as SECRET WARS, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, WATCHMEN, AMETHYST, PRINCESS OF GEM WORLD, and SQUADRON SUPREME. Investing in such a lengthy limited series was deemed too much of a financial risk, thereby causing the twelve-issue form to die out in the 1990s. Luckily for comic readers today, DC Comics’ BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN revivified the form, thus allowing us to read this AVENGERS/INVADERS limited series.
Here it is, the moment you all have been waiting for (and knew was coming): a battle royale between the Invaders and the Mighty Avengers, and it only took reading two issues! Huh, what’s going to happen for the other ten?
