A History and Facsimiles of Marvel's Smallest Comic Books
Reprinted for the first time, the world’s smallest comic books-originally printed in 1966 and now enlarged to a more readable size-in a seven-book collectable boxed set
In 1966, Marvel printed what the Guinness Book of World Records certified as the world’s smallest comic books. Smaller than a postage stamp, and sold in gumball machines across the country, these six books told the quirky origin stories of Marvel’s most beloved characters at that time: the Amazing Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, Captain America, Sergeant Nick Fury, and Millie the Model.
Marvel Comics Mini-Books reproduces facsimile editions of all six books in one affordable box set-along with a seventh book written by Mark Evanier that details the history and creation of these rare, vintage collectables.
