CONDITION: NEW. Famous First Edition of 5,000. "We had created a comic book for the older reader, for the more literate, more perceptive, more cognizant fan.” - Stan Lee.
Soar across the cosmos with one of Marvel’s most far-out characters! All 18 Silver Surfer stories from the eponymous 1968 series by Stan Lee and John Buscema (with a last issue finale drawn by Jack Kirby) are collected in this galactic-sized volume from the Eisner Award-winning Marvel Comics Library. The most pristine pedigreed comics have been cracked open and photographed for reproduction in close collaboration with Marvel and the Certified Guaranty Company. Each page has been photographed as printed more than half a century ago, then digitally remastered using modern retouching techniques to correct problems with the era’s inexpensive, imperfect printing—as if hot off a world-class 1960s printing press. A custom paper stock was exclusively developed for this series to simulate the feel of the original comics. Texts by author and critic Douglas Wolk and Marvel artist Sal Buscema accompany original artwork, photographs, and rare memorabilia.
Famous First Edition - a first printing of 5,000 numbered copies. English Edition. Hardcover (28 x 39.5 cm), 4.75 kg, 706 pages.
