Again, if you have any experience with MarvelBlog, then you know we can’t say enough good things about what is one of the funner series of the year in Jason Aarons Avengers Forever.

Trade Paperback of the Week
Jane Foster: The Saga of The Mighty Thor
The Annihilation Omnibus that releases this week was definitely in the running, but with Jane Fosters MCU debut just around the corner, we had to pick the character’s complete saga as the must-have for COLLECTORS this week
