The series Features the very best stories by some of Marvel’s most esteemed Authors including Chris Claremont, Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis, Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison and many more.

Each book is a complete graphic novel showing the epic adventures of Marvel’s best known superheroes in a complete story arc, and To keep you up to date, key events leading up to the story are also explained in the bonus material. In addition The Illustrations on The spine of each book also build into a fantastic Marvel Landscape which was originally done by Marvel Artist Gabriele Dell’Otto.
The first introductory edition costs £2.99, the next £5.99 and each subsequent edition costs £9.99 every fortnight thereafter. Thus Cynics might say that the first few editions are being sold cheap in order to get you hooked on the series, and that if you buy them all at full price you’ll end up unwittingly spending a fortune over the months. Still the books look to be of a very high quality and will probably become highly prized collectibles in years to come, and the illustrations also look fantastic.
