Illustrated throughout, The Penguin Classics Marvel Collection presents specially curated cartoon anthologies of the world’s greatest superheroes
Starting in 1961, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and their collaborators transformed the superhero genre with a series of new creations, including the Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, and the Invincible Iron Man. In 1963, Lee and Kirby brought these characters together for the first time in a new magazine called The Avengers – adding a resurrected Captain America shortly after, and other heroes over time. This unique collection gathers key issues from the first few years of the series.
A foreword by Leigh Bardugo, and a comprehensive introduction and notes by JosÃ© Alaniz offer further insight into the enduring significance of The Avengers and classic Marvel comics. This Penguin Classics black spine paperback features full-colour art.
