80 Comics. 80 Creative Teams. One Incredible Story.

Marvel 80th Anniversary Header

Trying to pick a favorite Marvel comic cover is never an easy task, but when you have 80 years of historic issues to dig through, well...you better not miss a beat.

Feast your eyes on this dazzling parade of Marvel's finest, as characters explode off the covers in which they were first introduced. With 80 memorable comics from Marvel's eventful history, it's almost impossible not to recognize a cover through the years, whether it's Spider-Man swinging through the neighborhood for the first time in AMAZING FANTASY #15 (1962), or the X-Men leaping through the page in GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1 (1975). Other treasures are included too, such as the very first Human Torch blazing through a steel wall in MARVEL COMICS #1 (1939). And the effect of seeing these legendary covers come to life? See for yourself.

The song is "Sea Legs" by none other than Run The Jewels, making this one tightly-knit, beat-driven medley of Marvel covers. These comics may be decades old, but here, they come together seamlessly and feel as fresh as when they first hit newsstands.

The music video packs a punch, but for those of you dying to find out which exact issues made the cut, look no further than below! We've got you covered with a listing of every single title.

 

Celebrating MARVEL COMICS #1000, itself an unprecedented feat in comics production, 80 creative teams from all over Marvel came together to bring you this loving tribute to Marvel's 80 years in publication.

It's a testament to the long line of visionaries in the House of Ideas, who continue to inspire new generations of Marvel creators, not just in print but also in music, video and animation. Making comics that look good in a music video? Now that's an instant classic.
