Sneak Peek! Marvel Announces Super Deluxe Stan Lee Slipcase !

0

We’ll have the new Marvel titles for Summer 2016 in a few hours, but I noticed this, and had to share immediately!

Next June, Marvel will be releasing an 816-page slipcase hardcover featuring some of the greatest iconic stories written by Stan Lee! (And some surprises as well, like the Spidey Sunday Spectacular!)

Marvel published something similar a decade ago, with the “Marvel Visionaries” series. While Stan Lee did have his own volume (as did Roy Thomas), many of his great stories were published in the volumes dedicated to Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, John Buscema, and John Romita, Sr.

Note… this is preliminary data. There is no cover yet, or the slipcase design. The price: $200. Given that price tag, Marvels says that only 6,000 copies will initally be printed.

My only question… If this is such a massive and popular project, why isn’t Disney/Marvel/Hachette saving it for the next holiday season? Some fans (such as myself) would buy this as a personal Christmas present, perhaps using holiday cash from relatives. Also, various news sites and magazines would highlight this in their “awesome gift giving” articles. One need only look at the popularity of The Complete Calvin and Hobbes to consider this worthy of a holiday promotion.

Which stories do you consider Stan’s best? Which of the stories listed below do you consider sub-par? What’s your guilty pleasure? Let us know!
