Back in July I shared some news from the Mighty Marvel Comics side of the fence about the return of the “Mighty Marvel Value Stamps” and if you missed that post or are new to our presentations just click on THIS LINK to be more up to speed. Earlier today I was in my local comic book retailer and they had the colorful folder where the collectors could showcase their stamps. I took a few photos of the whole thing to share them with you.
Once you open the folder you get a summary of the program and an advertisement about the return of “The Phoenix”.

Let’s take a look at the team members Agamotto, Black Panther, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Odin, Phoenix and Starbrand.
