Illustrated throughout- The Penguin Classics Marvel Collection presents specially curated comic book anthologies of the origin stories- seminal tales- and characters of the Marvel Universe to explore Marvel's transformative and timeless influence on an entire genre of fantasy. A Penguin Classics Marvel Collection Edition Collects Fantastic Four #1- 2- 3- 4- 5- 10- 11- 48- 49- 50- 51- and Fantastic Four Annual #6. It is impossible to imagine American popular culture without Marvel Comics. For decades- Marvel has published groundbreaking visual narratives that sustain attention on multiple levels: as metaphors for the experience of difference and otherness; as meditations on the fluid nature of identity; and as high-water marks in the artistic tradition of American cartooning- to name a few. For the first time- these classic stories of some of the most iconic super heroes in the artistic tradition of American cartooning- to name a few. Throughout the 1960s- The Fantastic Four doubled as both the flagship title and the creative laboratory of the Marvel Universe. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduced dozens of new characters and concepts in its pages- while expanding the emotional bandwidth and visual vocabulary of the super hero genre with every issue. This collection gathers some key tales from Lee and Kirby's lengthy tenure-from their first experiments in generic hybridity through to the remarkable fusion of the cosmic and the quotidian that is the 'The Galactus Trilogy.' A foreword by Jerry Craft- and a scholarly introduction and a general series introduction by Ben Saunders offer further insights into the enduring significance of the Fantastic Four and classic Marvel comics.

We will not accept returns or exchanges any book with out a stated grade where they would be NM 9.4 or better books.  We cannot promise 9.8s on every book, that's not realistic.  Printing is imperfect and does not allow for every book to be 9.8.

bindery defects like minor to moderate corner tears, white along the edge of the spine, covers that are offset from the pages (common on cardstock covers) - bindery defects may not affect the grade much if at all

printing defects like a slight color rubs on the back covers, small wrinkles in the paper that were present on the paper rolls prior to the books being printed, paper that is "wavy" from the printing process

2 - 3 small color breaking spine dings or minor non color breaking spine dings
