The Folio Society
The ultimate collector’s edition of Marvel: The Bronze Age

$225.00

Marvel: The Bronze Age 1970–1980
Selected and introduced by Roy Thomas
With original artwork by Julian Totino Tedesco and Ian Jepson
Preface by Chris Claremont

‘What you’ve been waiting for! This one’s got it all!’ from the amazing spider-man #96

Concluding a stunning trilogy from The Folio Society, this exclusive edition showcases the most dramatic decade in Super Hero history. Curated by Roy Thomas, Marvel: The Bronze Age 1970–1980 includes landmark tales of Spider-Man, Iron Man and The Eternals.

Artist Ian Jepson provides a dazzling yellow cover design beautifully ravaged by Wolverine’s iconic claw marks, while a mosaic of panels by Marvel artist Julian Totino Tedesco adorns the endpapers and presentation box. Tedesco also provides an exclusive art print featuring a dynamic assembly of Bronze Age Super Heroes.

This collection features our most ambitious facsimile comic yet: a whopping 68-page scale reproduction of Giant-Size X-Men#1. First published in 1975 and written by Wolverine co-creator Len Wein and illustrated by Dave Cockrum, this comic rebooted the mutant Superheroes as the modern team made famous by the movies. It has been painstakingly reproduced in its entirety from an original copy – including ads and the three extra X-Men stories collected in the original. As Marvel’s fanbase matured in the 1970s, so did the stories within the comics themselves. Collected here are the decade’s most shocking, most controversial tales. Spider-Man faces his best friend’s drug abuse and the death of the woman he loves. Iron Man battles alcoholism and Captain America finds himself defeated by Watergate-era disillusionment.

You’ll also find the last major works by Marvel pioneers Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, bringing this three-era series to a fitting close. The Folio Society’s Marvel series is a truly monumental trilogy, a Hulk-sized retrospective teeming with creativity and imagination that has inspired the world.
