The Folio Society is marking the 80th anniversary of Marvel Comics #1 with five specially curated comic books, including a facsimile of the comic which started it all back in 1939.
Produced in partnership with legendary Marvel editor Roy Thomas, Marvel: The Golden Age 1939–1949 also includes The Sub-Mariner #1 (Spring 1941), The Human Torch #5 (Fall 1941), Captain America Comics #10 and All Winners Comics #19, all of which have been scanned from original vintage material from the Marvel archives.
The “dazzling hardback volume” features lettering by Ian Jepson and comes presented inside a handmade clamshell case which features original artwork by modern Marvel artist Marco D’Alfonso, who has also created an exclusive print that is only available with this edition.
“We were delighted when Marvel asked us to collaborate on such an exciting project,” said Tom walker, Publishing Director, The Folio Society.
“We are thrilled with what we have created and are sure every Marvel fan will love this magnificent edition as much as we do”.
