Most are the "variant" first editions with embossed foil frames and "marble-look" dust-covers. Hard-cover (unless indicated otherwise). Almost all with introductions by the late Stan Lee. Several books include original stories from FF and Thor yearly annuals. Plus they offer samples of penciled (pre-ink and color), draft, and other preliminary artwork. In addition, there may be commentaries by various Marvel employees. Many Thor books include the beautifully written and illustrated "Tales of Asgard" stories.

$49 per book. If you are interested in more than one, good deals are possible.

Did you enjoy seeing John Krasinski play pliant genius and leader of the FF, "Reed Richards" (aka, "Mr. Fantastic") in the Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness movie? Are you looking forward to the future FF film? (In development by Marvel Studios this time, fortunately--third time's a charm, right?) Or maybe you like Chris Hemsworth as "Thor?" See where it all began.

Also available: Three additional books:
  • Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (paperback) - Covering the amazing Jim Steranko illustrated stories (1967-68)
  • The X-Men Volume 1 (MMW Vol. 3) - Issue #s 1-10 - 1961-63
  • X-Men - The Dark Phoenix Saga (paperback) By Claremont and Byrne
