Each summary also contains information regarding the date of publication, the newsstand cost (later the current value of each book will be added), the creators of each issue (ie. writer, artist, penciller, letterer, etc.) what major superheroes appeared (the group changed a lot!) and what nemesis and/or villain The Defenders faced. As time goes by and more space becomes available, each issue cover will be scanned in for you to view. If you can think of anything else that might be interesting to add...let me know!
