Review: All-New, All-Different Avengers Annual #1

All New All Different Avengers Annual #1 CoverYou’ve dreamed of it, you’ve asked for it, you’ve longed for it – and now, you’re going to GET it! No Avenger is safe from – the fan fiction of Kamala Khan!

All-New, All-Different Avengers Annual #1 is a who’s who of creators and most importantly, a lot of fun. The annual features six entertaining stories from writers G. Willow Wilson, Mark Waid, Natasha Allegri, Zac Gorman, Faith Erin Hicks, Scott Kurtz and art from Mahmud Asrar, Tamra Bonvillain, Chip Zdarsky, Natasha Allegri, Jay Fosgitt, Megan Wilson, Faith Erin Hicks, Scott Kurtz, and Steve Hamaker.

Lets get back to that fun part. Usually, I can’t stand annuals. I find them to be filler and rarely are worth the money or time reading them. This is a hell of an exception with entertaining stories from front to back. The transition in the beginning is a little odd, but once it’s clear how the annual is laid out, things are a hell of a ride that had me smiling and laughing throughout.

The concept is simple with Kamala Khan reading fan fiction about her (and a She-Hulk story) written by others. And with that we can stories and styles that vary and all of them work.

Waid and Zdarsky give us humorous jabs at online MRAs, while Gorman and Fosgitt provide an almost meta crack at Marvel itself (at least Spider-Ham). Each is very different in their look and all are solid. This is the first annual I’m actually suggesting folks get, it’s that much fun.

But, what I really like in this annual is the different styles and inclusion of writers and artists you don’t normally see playing in the Marvel universe. Natasha Allegri’s She-Hulk story has me wanting more in both tone and look while Gorman’s hero/animal mix fully expects me to see an entire spin-off from this universe ala Marvel Zombies. It’s very different, and very well done. So much so that I’d love to see Marvel embrace this for an entire year of annuals.

While I’d love to have seen more of a meta-discussion of online culture and fanfiction, there is some of that, but that’s not really the point. The point is to provide something different and fun and this annual succeeds when it comes to that.

Story: G. Willow Wilson, Mark Waid, Natasha Allegri, Zac Gorman, Faith Erin Hicks, Scott Kurtz

The Fan-Fiction World of Ms. Marvel Comes to Life in All-New, All-Different Avengers Annual!

Yes, you read that right! Now experience it like you’ve never seen as a bevy of all-star creators bring you the All-New, All-Different Avengers Annual this August! Featuring contributions from G. Willow Wilson, Mahmud Asrar, Mark Waid, Chip Zdarsky, Natasha Allegri, Zac Gorman, Jay Fosgitt, Faith Erin Hicks and Scott Kurtz – the best and brightest creators in comics bring you a tale of Earth’s mightiest that should not be missed!

Kamala’s been busy saving the world lately. She’s an Avenger and a big time super hero, after all. But she still might be surprised at the stories about her and her teammates on the super hero fan fiction message boards. Are you ready for the first meeting of Kamala Khan and Mar-Vell? What about the “Amazing New Adventures of She-Hulk”? But nothing will prepare you for the flurry of fists and fur in “Ms. Marvel Vs. Squirrel Girl”! And that’s just the beginning!
