marvel collectors item classics (1)

Today we share with you some photos and scans of three ancient issues of Marvel Collector’s Item Classics, which later became Marvel’s Greatest Comics (a Fantastic Four reprint series). Copies in rough shape like this are not exactly rare. We got them mixed in with lots back when we built a Marvel’s Greatest Comics collection. We read these anthology reprint titles when we were just wee martians at Gramma’s place on holiday, so they always elicit a warm emotion that has little to do with the literary or artistic quality of the stories. At 42, we find them harder to read as a story than we did at age seven, but quite enjoyable to flip through casually.

Behold.
