  1. SHAZAM! FROM THE 40'S TO THE 70'S Hardcover

    Regular Price: $175.00

    Sale Price $150.00

    Captain Marvel and his family were among the most popular Golden Age superheroes, occasionally surpassing even Superman in total sales. A lawsuit by DC put Captain Marvel and his publisher, Fawcett, on ice in the early 1950s, but DC brought the character back into print in Shazam! in the 1970s. This meaty volume containing mostly stories from the strip's heyday in the 1940s was released in 1977, perhaps to capitalize on the popularity of the then-current TV series. Shazam! from the 40s to the 70s showcases the storytelling genius of writer Otto Binder and artist C.C. Beck, as well as a few Captain Marvel, Jr. stories drawn by the great Mac Raboy, one of the finest draftsmen of the 1940s. Learn More

    $65.00

    $275.00

    In the mid-1960s, Jim Steranko burst into the Marvel Age of comics in a BIG way, and the innovative, cinematic techniques he introduced in his brief tenure there still stand as a high-water mark in the history of graphic storytelling. More than any other series, Steranko is most associated with Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. This Artist's Edition collects the first 12 stories of Steranko's run from Strange Tales #151-162, as well as all his covers from these issues--plus extras! Learn More
  5. THE COMPLETE EIGHTBALL SLIPCASED
    $175.00

    Before he rose to fame as a filmmaker and the author of the best-selling graphic novels Ghost World, David Boring, Ice Haven, and The Death Ray, Daniel Clowes made his name from 1989 to 1997 by producing 18 issues of the beloved comic book series Eightball, which is still widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential comic book titles of all time. For the 25th Anniversary of Eightball, Fantagraphics collected these long out-of-print issues in a slipcased set of two hardcover volumes, reproducing each issue in facsimile form exactly as they were originally published.

  6. FURY MY WAR GONE BY
    $45.00

    Colonel Nick Fury, veteran CIA operative, has been at war for a lifetime. Now he sits alone in a dank hotel room, coughing his confession into a tape recorder, laying out a legacy of carnage stretching back to World War II. Because when that war ended, another one began — and Fury sought it out, regardless of the cost to those who loved him, including loyal George Hatherly, Congressman Pug McCuskey, and the beautiful Shirley DeFabio. From Indochina to Cuba, Vietnam to Nicaragua, Fury battled across the decades, encountering young Marine sniper Frank Castle and the nightmarish Barracuda, his constant lust for combat blinding him to all other concerns. But the end is coming. The debt is long past due. And Nick Fury's true legacy will soon be written in blood for all to see. Learn More
  7. MARVEL MASTERWORKS THE INCREDIBLE HULK 8
    $55.00

    The first volume of Hulk Masterworks covers the only six issues of the Incredible Hulk's first run as a solo title. It bears the distinction of being the very second title introduced into Marvel's stable of super-heroics, but also the first title to get the axe! Stan and Jack were learning their way through the character and what it could offer, and that confusion is very clear throughout these initial stories. It may be hard to believe, but at first, our iconically green-skinned goliath was colored gray! But by Incredible Hulk #2, he is colored green, unnannounced, unexplained and without any fanfare. His behavior and intellect also fluctuate on a bi-monthly basis (yes, these early issues of Hulk were delivered every other month).
