The Avengers Annual was published by World Distributors for Marvel UK around September from 1974-1977 (cover dated 1975-1978). Effectively a spin-off from Marvel's Avengers Weekly, each hardback annual reprinted three issues of American Marvel comics in full colour, although (in keeping with the anthology nature of most of Marvel UK's product) only the 1976 annual contained three Avengers stories; the 1975 edition contained two Avengers stories and one starring Captain America, while the 1977 and 1978 editions both featured Conan the Barbarian (a character who had formerly had a back-up slot in Avengers Weekly after that title absorbed he weekly Savage Sword of Conan). In fact, the 1977 edition featured more Conan than Avengers! The 1976 annual was only 64 pages long, but the other three ran to 80 pages. An urelated Avengers Annual not published in conjuction with Marvel UK but by Panini saw print in 2012, dated 2013.
