Marvel Comics

In 1939, American publisher, Martin Goodman, founded Timely Publications from his office in New York; since the 1960s, the company has been known as Marvel Comics, and today is one of the most important names in comic book history. From Timely Publications emerged legendary comic book writer Stan Lee, who began his career at the publishers as a humble assistant. Lee has created some of the most iconic characters for Marvel, including Spider-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men - all of which have been transformed into Hollywood blockbusters. Although Marvel comics have been coveted by comic book enthusiasts for decades, the success of the movies has further spread interest in collecting these items. Rare vintage Marvel comics in mint condition can sell for hundreds of thousands at auction or with dealers.
