The Marvel Vault A Museum-in-a-book with Rare Collectibles from the World of Marvel by Roy Thomas, Peter Sanderson

This is the complete history of Marvel Comics contained in an interactive scrapbook! With sixty years under its belt, the Marvel archive spans three generations of readers who grew up with its instantly recognizable characters including The Incredible Hulk , X-Men , Spider Man , The Fantastic Four , Captain America and Daredevil . No fan will want to miss The Marvel Vault , a treasure trove of comic book history, which delves into the archives to tell the story of Marvel across the decades. Featuring iconic names such as Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee, and illustrator Jack Kirby, readers will also be entertained by the deals and machinations that go into producing their favourite comics - this is a warts-and-all history! But The Marvel Vault is far more than simply a history book - it's an interactive scrapbook with over 30 removable archival reproductions and collectible memorabilia including Christmas and Birthday cards, membership and trading cards. The reproductions are all contained in sturdy plastic sleeves, and the book is cased in a silver foil, embossed cover. 2007 sees the launch of several Marvel movies, including Spiderman 3 , Ghostrider and Fantastic Four 2 .
