In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Marvel Comics #1, The Folio Society has joined legendary Marvel editor Roy Thomas to form a super-powered team-up of their own. Marvel: The Golden Age 1939–1949 presents five specially curated comic books, including a painstakingly produced facsimile of the comic that started it all back in 1939. This is the first title in an ongoing collaboration between The Folio Society and Marvel.

A dazzling hardback volume with lettering by Ian Jepson comes presented inside a handmade clamshell case which features original artwork by modern Marvel artist Marco D’Alfonso, who has also created an exclusive print that is only available with this edition.
