Ok, I Just Want To Read One Issue of One Avengers Comic Before I Blow All My Money Because Some Guy Told Me To And I Want It To Have Thor And Captain America And Iron Man In It And I Want It To Look Good:
Get yourself a copy of Avengers/Squadron Supreme 1998 Annual by Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco. The inside looks better than this crappy cover, I promise. anyway: this is basically what Avengers comics are like. Now you may read it and wonder: How did Firebird manage to talk to the ants? Don't ask me. Just relax, the plot holes only get bigger, ok? This is comic books.
Wait But I Want A Comic That Has Dialogue More Like The Movie, But Maybe Also With More Chicks In It And Also Maybe With Spider-Man and Wolverine From The X-Men In It:
So there's a long story arc where the original Avengers break up (don't worry, this kind of thing happens all the time) and then reform with new members and then fight among themselves. Funny words by Brian Michael Bendis, utterly respectable and then, later, completely stunning art by David Finch and Leinil Frances Yu respectively.
Go to your comic book store or online robo-outlet and get the following comics--Avengers Disassembled and New Avengers Volumes 1 (Breakout), 3 (Secrets and Lies) , 5 (Civil War), 6 (Revolution) and 7 (The Trust)
I Liked Captain America And I Like When They Fought Aliens, I Wish There Was More Of That And/Or I Really Like The Avengers And Kinda Want To Get Whole Hog Into The Whole Avengers Mythology Thing:
Avengers Forever. Like a rich and succulent nectar directly from the comic books of Zeus.
The Main Thing Was I Liked The Movie Costumes And That Nick Fury Was Samuel L Jackson:
In that case you want an Avengers comic rather confusingly called The Ultimates. Start with volume one and go until you get bored. Warning: The giant Giant Man and the teeny tiny Wasp are, in this comic, even more The Avengers' Most Disturbing Couple than usual and in kind of exactly the way you think they would be.
Wait, Screw These Guys, I Want More Hulk, But Still Like, Funny Like The Movie:
Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk by Leinil Frances Yu and some writer who wrote for Lost or something. It has a panda in it.
Ok, Fine But I Hate New Comics, I Liked Comics Back When You Could See The Ben Day Dots As Big As A Golfball:
You want the Kree-Skrull War and then maybe the Korvac Saga my friend, knock yourself out.
Actually I Don't Really Care If It's The Avengers Or Not A Just Like Superheroes Bickering All Sitcomlike And Then Teaming Up To Hit Things After A While:Oh you are in luck, Keith Giffen and JM DeMatteis wrote Justice League like this for years. So if you ever wanted to see Batman punch a Green Lantern in the face, there's a comic for you...
Ok, but I'm a grown up and I want to see Tony Stark and Captain America all grown up...
Ok, I just love Thor is all...
Frankly, her comics have never been that good, probably her best treatment was in Frank Miller's Daredevil stuff.
I want more Hawkeye!
No you don't.
*There is a bad one, created especially for the movie. It is terrible.
