Marvel Age

    (Marvel, 1983-1994)
Marvel

In 1982, Marvel introduced Marvel Age, a newsletter for its fans. Originally priced at a mere 25¢, it featured a checklist of upcoming Marvel titles, as well as interviews with members of the Marvel creative teams.

Over the years, it has grown into more of a comic book, featuring artwork and attractions by up-and-coming artists. And, as always, it provides inside information on the workings of the Marvel universe. Not surprisingly, the newsletter itself has become collectible.
