From our friends at Hidden Tiger Books...
THE AVENGERS is a remarkable television series... and its fans are remarkable, too!
From its debut in 1961, The Avengers soon became a worldwide cultural phenomenon, rewriting the rulebook of television drama along the way. It was a revolutionary series that always playfully twisted perceptions, pushed the boundaries of its genre, and defied those who wished to pigeonhole it. Despite its lofty achievements, the team behind The Avengers never forgot that its primary objective was to entertain. And entertain it most certainly did, inspiring successive generations to welcome the series into their hearts.
Right from its foreword by pioneering television historian Dave Rogers to its afterword by Jason Whiton of SpyVibe, Avengerworld celebrates the series, its international fandom and its fans. Over the course of more than forty essays, Avengers fans the world over relate how they first encountered the series, how they grew up with it at their sides, forged friendships, engaged with fandom, and were inspired to do extraordinary things.
Proceeds from this book will be donated to Champion Chanzige, a charity organisation that exists to improve conditions for underprivileged children at a primary school in Southern Tanzania – and helps them to do extraordinary things, too.
