‘Marvel Value Stamps: A Visual History’ Showcases Marvel’s Famous Stamp Program

Abrams Books revisits Marvel’s promotional value stamp campaign (popular with readers at the time and the bane of comic collectors ever since) in a brand new book by Roy Thomas.

All 100 value stamps from 1974 (and the follow up program in 1975) are featured in Marvel Value Stamps: A Visual History, along with pictures of the original stamp books, stamps, and all of the additional ephemera and source material.

Abrams ComicArts will also issue a calendar for 2024 based on the famous stamps this August.

After a few delays, the 400 pages book will reach stores on March 28 and will retail for $29.99.

Check out the cover by Alex Ross and a sample page from the book below.
