>>>
When the job's too big for Ant-Man to handle, it's time for Hank Pym to become...Giant-Man! But being a larger-than-life-size super hero comes with equally large problems - like when Hank rejoins the Avengers to free the Wasp from the Collector's clutches, but gets stuck as a 10-foot tall Goliath! Or when his latest alter ego, Yellowjacket, must go large to stop arch-foe the Whirlwind! Then, Hank and his fellow Goliath, the size-changing Bill Foster, have big plans - that's Project B.I.G. plans - to solve world hunger using Pym Particles! And fi nally, to save his Avengers Academy students from an overgrown Absorbing Man, Giant-Man must come out of super-hero retirement! You'll love Hank "High-Pockets" Pym - he's a hero to look up to!

Collecting AVENGERS (1963) #28 and #139, MARVEL DOUBLE FEATURE: AVENGERS/GIANTMAN #379-382, AVENGERS ACADEMY #7, and material from TALES TO ASTONISH (1959) #49.

Infinity Gauntlet Backissues are hot

INFINITY GAUNTLET #4 (Oct 1991)
Marvel Comics
I'm constantly shocked at how much some of my comics are worth. Like many of you, we bought these off the newsstands (or comic stores) for cover price, not really thinking it could be worth any money.  Younger fans, who didn't have the same opportunities, are buying these landmark comics for a much higher price.

This is an example from a fan who recently completed his Infinity Gauntlet collection with a $20 purchase at Tate's Comics. Apparently the original crossover comics are super hot, thanks to the latest Avengers film.

TEEN TITANS #1 (2nd & 3rd Print) (Homage) (Sep 2003)
DC Comics
DC Comics will be launching these 100-page "Giant" $5 comics at Walmart in July 2018, which includes a new story with reprints. Although no George Perez reprints are included in the first issue of Teen Titans Giant, it probably won't be long until we see his art in the Walmart exclusive series given how many TT issues that George touched.

Defining the DCU: Wolfman and Perez Talk Crisis on Infinite...

CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #1 (Apr 1985)
DC Comics
Defining the DCU: Wolfman and Perez Talk Crisis on Infinite...

Over thirty years later, the effects of Marv Wolfman and George Perez's universe-altering CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS can still be felt within the DCU. In this exclusive look back, the pair of creators reminisce about building a better Multiverse.

(excerpt)

Perez has his own side of the story, of course. "I was just going to go through and pace it and sneak in as many extra characters as I could, since obviously the plot told you the specific characters who were needed in order to progress the story. So, I would find ways of putting in other characters in the background and stuff like that," he said, but was quick to add that, for as small as it seemed starting out, "There was one point when I actually realized that this thing was becoming massive. Marv did a scene and I drew it and then in the following issue the same exact scene happened—it was getting out of hand."

That's when Perez took his contributions to the next level and started offering story notes and things really got off the ground. Wolfman explained, "George came in to co-plot, it just took so much pressure off of me. The basic overview of Crisis always remained the same, but the details, the stuff that made it work, our shorthand just informed that whole story. So, everything changed once that happened and so much of the pressure left."
