Rejects, benchwarmers, lovable losers, and might-be Avengers…assemble! In the beloved tradition of Assistant Editors’ Month, we the staffers are sick and tired of our bosses telling nothing but Wolverine stories, Spider-Man stories, Captain America stories…and we’re taking matters into our own oddball hands! Little guys can be heroes, too…and when this motley crew of misfits gets their shot – in stories featuring Elsa Bloodstone, American Eagle, D-Man, the daughter of Galactus, Mini Marvel cake-eating Hawkeye, Candidate Luke Cage, and more – it could be the start of something big! Don’t miss this two-issue anthology of also-rans who might – just MIGHT – ascend to the A-list! (Fingers crossed. Really we’re just hoping this doesn’t get us fired.) Rated A …$3.99

    There's no denying that this is a self-indulgent series, but done sparingly, that's perfectly forgivable. As a method of packaging previously online-exclusive shorts for the direct market, this is far more preferable to something like "Astonishing Tales," and its idiosyncratic tone makes it a memorable read, even if half of it isn't very good. It's a far worse crime for a comic to settle for mediocrity than it is for one to stall halfway towards greatness, and so even though the "Assistant-Sized Spectacular" falls into the latter camp, I'll still be picking up issue #2. It's earned that much of a chance. Read Full Review
