*Marvel: There have been many line-ups of Marvel heroes calling themselves ‘Defenders’ – including the bunch soon to debut in their own Netflix TV series – but here, we’re talking about the originals: Doctor Strange, the Hulk, and the Sub-Mariner (aided periodically by the Silver Surfer and the Valkyrie). We have the first three issues of the showcase title Marvel Feature from 1971, in which not only did the Defenders come together for the first time, but in a separate new story Dr. Strange was reinvented, with all traces of his superheroic phase removed and original features, as the estate agents say, lovingly reinstalled. Following two more Marvel Feature adventures, the Defenders moved on to their own series, and we have the first 14, many of which were never distributed in the UK, plus their first Annual and the first Giant-Size Defenders. In addition to the first issue, highlights include #4, which re-introduced the Valkyrie (previously only a cunning guise of the Enchantress) as a fully-fledged super-hero, and # 9 & #10, chapters in the Avengers/Defenders War crossover event, one of the first of its type. Marvel Feature #1 is FN/VF at £95; Defenders #1 FN+ at £50. Full details of all issues in our catalogue.
