Ant-Man/Giant-Man/Wasp Reprints

The Astonishing Ant-Man (Hank Pym) debuted in Tales to Astonish (1962) #27. The Wasp (Janet Van Dyne) joined him in issue 44. They have appeared in:

Henry "Hank" Pym first shrunk himself in issue 27 but he didn't return until issue 35 as the Ant-Man. After a few adventures, he was joined by the lovely Janet Van Dyne (aka the Wasp) with issue 44. The shrinking gimmick got old so he became Giant-Man in issue 49. The Incredible Hulk started sharing the title with issue 59. Sales were still low so they were replaced by the Sub-Mariner in issue 60.

Hank and Jan were founding members of the Avengers and they appeared frequently there after their own series was cancelled. Hank became Goliath in Avengers #28, and then Yellowjacket in Avengers #59. When they got their short-lived stint in Marvel Feature, Hank briefly returned to his Ant-Man persona. But the Ant-Man mantle was later passed on to Scott Lang.

There was also a backup feature called The Wasp Tells A Tale.
