JLA/Avengers Gets a New Edition from the Hero Initiative


Honoring George Pérez, the Hero Initiative has announced that the acclaimed JLA/Avengers crossover will get a reprint. This is the first time in decades the comic series has had a new printing. The Hero Initiative is a charity dedicated to helping comic creators in medical and financial need. Pérez in December 2021 announced that he had Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer. He recently entered into hospice care due to medical complications. George Pérez is a founding member of Hero Initiative’s board of directors and has served as chair of its Disbursement Committee.

JLA/Avengers will be available in March from participating comic book stores and will be distributed via Diamond Comic Distributors. The book collects the original four issue series that was written by Kurt Busiek with art by Pérez and published in a joint venture between DC and Marvel.

The collection also features 64 pages of companion content, and the original introductions by Stan Lee and Julius Schwartz. The “Hero Initiative Edition” features a new afterword by Kurt Busiek.

JLA/Avengers will retail for $29.99 and is limited to 7000 copies.
