It’s been a great week if you’re a fan of Marvel collected editions: the Star Wars Omnibus covers were revealed, the Star Wars Epic line that will reprint Dark Horses’s run was announced and even the Marvel Masterworks: Rarities Volume 1 was released.
But now we get the Granddaddy…our first look at the Marvel 75th Anniversary Masterworks Slipcase Set. You’ll recall that Marvel teased us back in April with this set and I even lamented on the podcast that there may be a misprint on the spine with the Not Brand Echh volume. I still can’t tell if that’s fixed, but at least we have a better idea of what the package will look like.
What do you guys think? Are you going to get it?
In celebration of Marvel Comics’ 75th Anniversary, Marvel proudly presents a deluxe collection of its 10 mightiest Masterworks hardcovers – plus the all-new, long-in-demand NOT BRAND ECHH VOL. 1 and the AVENGERS 75TH ANNIVERSARY BY ALEX ROSS POSTER signed by none other than Stan “The Man” Lee!
“This is one of the most epic collections Marvel has ever compiled. Not only do these Masterworks retell the origins of Marvel’s iconic heroes, but they are collected and presented in a gorgeous slipcase built to resemble the historic Avengers Mansion,” says David Gabriel, SVP Sales and Marketing. “If that wasn’t enough, this collection is coupled with a beautiful poster signed by Stan Lee. It doesn’t get grander then this!”
Each titanic tome in this limited-edition boxed set features a newly designed cover treatment and interlocking spine artwork, and the slipcase itself is patterned after stately Avengers Mansion!
