Publishing giant, Penguin, has begun the release of their new Marvel Collection, featuring the legendary works of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and many more. Three titles have been released so far. Spiderman, Black Panther and Captain America, Penguin Classics has also revealed its intention to grow the marvel collection, with the release of forthcoming titles to be announced at a later date.

The three titles have been released in both paperback and hardback, with the latter being a collector’s edition created as testament to the celebrated work of these writers and artists. 

Penguin’s hardback version features full-colour artwork throughout, gold foil stamping, gold top stain edges, and special endpapers spotlighting series villains.

“The comics produced at Marvel in the 1960s can be compared to the most enduring popular music of that same tumultuous decade. Working at tremendous speed in what was widely regarded as a low-status commercial medium, the creators at Marvel initiated and participated in an aesthetic revolution,” expressed series editor Ben Saunders.

As Saunders says, there’s no doubt that Marvel’s work – and the contributions of the many illustrators, hand-letterers and designers that have shaped its world – has left a lasting impression on visual culture.
