      So, how do we know which retailers are participating? Is there a list or something?

      I'm pretty excited about Avengers Day as well.. Even though I only get trades now and won't feel the excitement until 5-6 months later than everyone else.

      Should everyone on this message board unite together on May 19th and shout the Avengers slogan, "Avengers Assemble"!?

      It's about time for an Avengers day. I need to figure out how to get my local shop to have an Avengers Day. On Romita art, I'm going to wait to see the first couple of issues before passing judgment.www.comicsninja.com[/url]

      I would be excited but this guy is the artist.......I really dont understand how he does big time stories....The story may be great but the first thing you see in Comics are the art and if the characters look like they were drawn by 7th grade kids fighting for a blue ribbon at the fair then I do not want to see it. So lousy really. Please will someone stand up against this guy.

      I've waited 30 years for Avenger Day! Too bad I'm not a retailer. Now if only we could have 1980 prices for the books and all would be good with the world.
