Marvel Announces "Famous Firsts" Graphic Novel Set

A couple months ago, Marvel solicited a special collection of their Marvel Masters works hardcover line aimed at celebrating the publisher’s 75th Anniversary. Dubbed the “Marvel Famous Firsts: 75th Anniversary Masterworks Slipcase Set,” this collection includes 10 Vol. 1 hardcovers from the Marvel Masterworks series, covering classic Silver Age comics like The Avengers, Fantastic Four, Amazing Spider-Man, and The X-Men. And while most of these hardcovers are currently sold individually, one of the major selling points of this collection is that it will debut the first volume in the Marvel Masterworks: Not Brand Ecch series.

The ten hardcovers will be gathered in a specially-designed cardboard slipcase designed to look like Avengers Mansion. Also, the cover art for each book has been redesigned so that all ten spines form an interlocking image. And to round out the package, this set includes a limited edition Avengers poster illustrated by Alex Ross and signed by Stan Lee.
