Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on Thursday, and many fans are racing to refresh their memories on what exactly happened in the 21 previous films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But if you’ve already finished your MCU rewatch and need to feed that Avengers addiction before your Endgame screening, now’s a great time to check out (or revisit) the comics.

Jumping into comics, especially one with as long and complicated a history as the Avengers, can be daunting — not to mention costly — but Comixology has you covered. The digital comics retailer is running a sale on comics starring Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the rest of Earth’s mightiest heroes. Iconic Avengers storylines from throughout Marvel’s history, starting with the original 1963 Avengers #1, are discounted by up to 67 percent.

It’s dubbed the “Avengers: Start Here sale.” Comixology’s landing page divides the sale into specific runs, offering helpful suggestions on where to begin reading. Each storyline highlights a different lineup of heroes and villains, but you’ll recognize plenty of your favorite Avengers, and meet some characters who haven’t yet made it to the MCU in whichever run you pick up.

Those specifically interested in finding out the deal with Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet can check out Comixology’s concurrent “Thanos: Start Here sale.” An essential collection of 13 comics featuring the Mad Titan and his bejeweled glove are on sale as well, also for up to 67 percent off.
