Earlier this year, the first-ever Marvel comic book sold at auction for a record $1.26 million. Speaking on the sale of the 1939 issue, Ed Jaster, the senior vice president of Heritage Auctions, remarked: "This is a historic copy of a historic comic book."
It is an honour to present some of the best-known comic book covers from our Marvel collection, each of which has been hand-signed by the late Stan Lee and adds to the historical narrative of the legendary publishing powerhouse. Featured in the selection are some of Marvel's most iconic superheroes, including the Amazing Spider-Man, Deadpool, Wolverine, Thor and the X-Men.
