Celebrate Marvel’s 75th Anniversary!

marvel-75th-anniversary-omnibus-cover-104325This October celebrate with Marvel Comics their 75th anniversary!

This is what Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso had to say about the anniversary,  “Marvel’s 75th Anniversary belongs to our fans as much as it does to our creators and everyone behind the scenes…We wish we could’ve printed every story you chose but, of course, if we had, the book would be unmovable! So we poured over your top 75 and selected to print the best, brightest and most iconic stories — ‘Assembling the Avengers,’ ‘The Coming of Galactus,’ ‘The Death of Captain Marvel,’ ‘Days of Future Past’ and more — to make this Omnibus your one-stop shop for 75 years of Marvel history.”

As a way of celebrating, Marvel will be releasing an omnibus. The 1,000-page omnibus will  include:
