Marvel Comics Mini-Books

Reprinted for the first time, the world's smallest comic books - originally printed in 1966 and now enlarged to a more readable size - in a seven-book collectable boxed set In 1966, Marvel printed what the Guinness Book of World Records certified as the world's smallest comic books. Smaller than a postage stamp, and sold in gumball machines across the country, these six books told the quirky origin stories of Marvel's most beloved characters at that time: the Amazing Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, Captain America, Sergeant Nick Fury, and Millie the Model. Marvel Comics Mini Books reproduces facsimile editions of all six books in one affordable box set - along with a seventh book written by Mark Evanier that details the history and creation of these rare, vintage collectables.
