The First MARVEL Event of the Year Starts THIS WEEK!

The All-New, All-Different Marvel Comics relaunch has been a huge hit, and now that Secret Wars has come to its head, the Marvel Universe has a new dilemma: PLEASANT HILL!

What is Pleasant Hill? Why will it tear The Avengers apart? Why is it a threat to S.H.I.E.L.D.? How will this change the Marvel Universe? And what will this do to get fans prepared for CIVIL WAR II? All of this, and MORE, starts this week and will smash through March and April as Marvel's major Spring event!

STK697091

The prelude to the Spring's blockbuster AVENGERS event!
Hello there and welcome, new resident. You've sure made the right choice in moving to Pleasant Hill-- a friendly small town where burdens are lifted and the sun is always bright... so hide your eyes. Don't let it see you looking its way. Hide if you must. Otherwise it will burn right through you. Pleasant Hill is the kind of place where folks look out for one another. Everyone knows who their neighbors are. But who are you, neighbor?

The event will continue into March with THE AVENGERS STANDOFF: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL ALPHA #1 and will cross through Marvel's hottest titles leading up to the release of CIVIL WAR II #1!
