Avengers. Vol. 1. 1963–1965’s “Famous First Edition” will be released as 5,000 numbered copies. The book’s “Collector’s Edition,” limited to only 1,000 numbered copies, includes an aluminum print cover tipped into a leatherette-bound spine, foil embossing, and a slipcase.

For Avengers. Vol. 1. 1963–1965, TASCHEN collaborated with Marvel and the Certified Guaranty Company to photograph and digitally remaster each page, using modern retouching techniques to correct problems with the era’s printing. The volume recaptures the moment when Marvel Editor-in-Chief Stan Lee and legendary artist Jack Kirby brought Iron Man, Ant-Man, the Wasp, Thor, and the Hulk together as the Avengers for the first time in Marvel Comics history.
