Marvel Comics marks its 80th birthday in 2019. Many of the classic superheroes we celebrate were created in the 1960s, and in the 1970s a UK Marvel imprint was created for British fans. ‘Captain Britain Weekly’ was launched in 1976, featuring the adventures of the first Marvel UK superhero, closely followed by another British character, Union Jack. Both these take their place in the ranks of superheroes in the stamps.

This is a miniature sheet like no other – this set of five bonus Marvel stamps form part of a ten-panel comic book strip in which the Mad Titan, Thanos, launches a deadly attack on the world. This original, never-seen-before story with a unique British twist (look out for Trafalgar Square and the Gherkin!) has been specially written and designed by Marvel.

This cover is available signed by actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor who played the villian 'Ebony Maw', one of the Children of Thanos in the Avengers: Infinity War film.

Comic Books

Comic books consist of graphic art in the form of sequential panels that represent individual scenes. Often accompanied by brief descriptive prose and written narrative, they usually contain dialogue in word balloons, emblematic of the comics art form. Although comics have some origins in 18th century Japan, comic books were first popularised in America and the United Kingdom during the 1930s, however the largest comic book market remains in Japan. The term ‘comic book’ derives from American comic books once being a compilation of comic strips of a humorous tone. This practice was replaced by featuring stories of all genres. As of 2017, the largest comic book publisher in the United States is Manga distributor Viz Media, followed by DC Comics and Marvel Comics.
