A custom paper stock was exclusively developed for this series to simulate the feel of the original comics. The library offers collectors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lay their hands on the world's most desirable comics. Each volume includes an essay by a comic book historian alongside archival photographs, ephemera, and original comic book artwork. With an in-depth historical essay by Marvel editor. And original art, rare photographs, and other gems, these 698 pages of wall-crawling wonder will make anyone's spider-sense tingle with anticipation.
This heavy (around 9kg) deluxe volume features an aluminum print cover tipped into a leatherette-bound spine, foil embossing, and is housed in a specially-designed slipcase. New, unread Collector's Edition of 1,000 numbered copies - this is #0142 of the run, and comes in the original box and all packaging.
