Here's an outstanding George Perez portrait of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne which served as not one, not two, not three, but four covers for The Avengers in the 90's. This image was divided into quarters and one fourth was showcased each month as a flip cover for The Avengers under the alternate title "Giant-Man". I still remember waiting patiently each month to get the next installment of his Perez classic.

These were done during a surprisingly evocative period in Avengers history, when Bob Harras was the scribe. The Avengers at this time had a compelling story to tell which really made for an exciting and often overlooked period in the history of the team. Below are the original covers.

  1. I missed these somehow. The original black and white picture is spectacular. Don't think it's worth being spread over 4 issues though.

    1. I remember it being big fun to able to finally spread out the four parts to see the finished image. This is before Perez returned to the team full time a few years later with Kurt Busiek for that extremely exciting run.
