Former DC comics VP Rich Johnson has a new book coming out from Rizzoli’s Universe imprint this spring. The Avengers: Heroes, Icons, Assembled examines the essential Avengers stories and spinoffs, as well as the history of the Marvel superhero team, through comics covers and interior artwork as well as storyboards and concept art from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The 224-page hardcover has over 300 illustrations and will be published on April 2, 2024, with an MSRP of $45.

The book is a followup to Johnson’s 2022 book Captain America: Avenger, Hero, Icon, which was also published by Rizzoli (see “Rich Johnson’s New Book Takes a Deep Dive into the Mythos of Captain America”).

Johnson is a former VP of DC Comics and Lion Forge, a co-founder of Yen Press, the co-editor of COVID Chronicles: A Comics Anthology, and the Vice President - Sales and Business Development for Diamond Book Distributors (see "DBD Gets Rich Johnson").
