*Marvel: The tabloid-sized Treasury Editions published by Marvel from 1974 to the 1980s may not have caught on as a permanent format, but they certainly have their fans, particularly among a certain generation in the UK whose earliest exposure to the iconic Marvel characters was via these huge compendiums of classic adventures! In addition to the ‘baseline’ Marvel Treasury Series, Marvel launched a few short-run series in the same format, one of which was Marvel Special Edition, an oversized reprint (in issues #1 and #2) of the first six issues of Star Wars monthly, which in its turn adapted the very first Star Wars film (or the fourth, depending on how seriously you take all that). We have Marvel Special Edition #1 & #2 back in stock, as well as a selection of Marvel Treasury Edition ‘proper’ featuring the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, Conan, the Defenders, and others. Highlights include #4, in which the Conan saga ‘Red Nails’ is reprinted, with Barry Smith’s art looking even more exquisite at the larger size, and #12, with an all-new Howard the Duck eggstravaganza! In addition, we have two Kolossal Kirby Klassics: the Marvel Treasury Special, Captain America’s Bicentennial Battles and 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which Kirby adapted the highly-acclaimed Kubrick sci-fi movie, before extrapolating it into an ongoing series.
