Avengers Vs. X-Men Hitting April 4th

Are you ready to rumble? How about The Avengers squaring off with the X-Men? The throw down will take place over 12 bi-weekly issues with Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman and Matt Fraction all on writing duties, the heroic teams are set to clash over the arrival of the Phoenix Force on Earth and its target of Hope Summers. The art will be provided by superstar trio John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel and Adam Kubert.
      A "zero issue" prologue will kick off the event in March from Bendis, with the premise being that the X-Men want to prepare Hope to be the host of the Phoenix Force while the Avengers want the girl handed over to them in order to keep the world from potentially being destroyed if she fails to control the powerful entity.   

     Issue #1 of The Avengers Vs X-Men hits comic book stores on April 4th, but you can get it a day early if you comic shop participates in the April 3rd launch event!  Stores that participate will be able to sell it at 8 p.m. the night of the 3rd. Goodies such as lithographs, posters, badges, postcards, free comics, and more will be given away for the event!  The twist - which side will your comic shop be pledged to?  The stores that participate will have to chose X-Men or Avengers to side with and the goodies will be based on their allegiance! Check with your local shop for more details!
