The Avengers star in spooky “Avengers Halloween Special” this fall
I’m not a huge fan of horror itself, but I do enjoy some good spooky fun around Halloween. Holiday specials are also a plus, especially in the world of comics, and the Avengers look to marry fun with spookiness in a new Halloween Special this fall. With a star-studded cast of writers and artists, the Avengers Halloween Special will feature Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a series of chilling adventures. Check out the details below.
