Illustrated throughout, The Penguin Classics Marvel Collection presents specially curated cartoon anthologies of the world’s greatest superheroes
Throughout the 1960s, the Fantastic Four was both the flagship title and the creative laboratory of the Marvel Universe. In each issue, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduced dozens of new characters and concepts, all while expanding the emotional bandwidth and visual vocabulary of the superhero genre. Collected here are the very best stories and most historic moments. A foreword by Jerry Craft and a comprehensive introduction and notes by Ben Saunders offer further insight into the enduring significance of the Fantastic Four and classic Marvel comics.
This Deluxe Hardcover edition features gold foil stamping, gold top stain edges, special endpapers with artwork spotlighting series villains, and full-colour art.
