Please find below each comic
in which The Defenders appeared. By clicking on the title of each book, a complete
summary of the story will be found. 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!
