Fans and devoted readers of Marvel Comics going back to the early days will be thrilled by this exciting news.
In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Marvel Comics #1, The Folio Society has joined legendary Marvel editor Roy Thomas to form a super-powered team-up of their own. Marvel: The Golden Age 1939–1949 presents five specially-curated comic books, including a brilliantly reproduced facsimile of the comic that started it all back in 1939 that’s every collector’s dream to own.
This is the first title in what is going to be an ongoing collaboration between The Folio Society and Marvel. It can be pre-ordered now ahead of release on 25th September.
Scanned from original vintage material from the Marvel archives, each comic showcases key characters and creators from this seminal era: this covers everything from Captain America to the Human Torch; and from creative geniuses including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. A dazzling hardback volume with lettering by Ian Jepson 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. Check out the incredible details in the images.
“We were delighted when Marvel asked us to collaborate on such an exciting project. We are thrilled with what we have created and are sure every Marvel fan will love this magnificent edition as much as we do,” Tom walker, Publishing Director, The Folio Society.
