"Who are the globe-hopping, monster-hunting, weirdness magnets that are about to shake things up for the Mighty Avengers?" asks Slott. "Meet Ace and One-Eyed Jacquie, the two-man team codenamed: Blackjack!
"Forget S.H.I.E.L.D., S.W.O.R.D. and H.A.M.M.E.R. BLACKJACK belongs to an agency whose acronym strikes terror into every man's heart: G.R.A.M.P.A.! Yeah, you read that right. G.R.A.M.P.A., the Global Reaction Agency for Mysterious Paranormal Activity.
"Whatever the danger--giant monsters, vampires, hyper-intelligent monkeys or freakishly nice robot overlords--the Global Reaction Agency is on the case, solving problems with big guns, big ideas and in under two pages!"
