As a part of their “Marvel Legacy”, the House Of Ideas will be bringing back something that is truly a part of their legacy with the “Marvel Value Stamps”. Read on down below for the full press release and know that I will close us out with some additional editorial thoughts.
The Press Release:
Who saved them? Who clipped them? Who collected them? This fall, the Marvel Universe returns to an untapped corner of its expansive history for MARVEL LEGACY with the return of the Marvel Value Stamps. Just as Marvel Legacy is bridging the past and the future of Marvel’s iconic universe, this nostalgia-based program is designed to appeal not only to core fans, but to give new readers an added extra bonus when they jump in on the start of Marvel Legacy. Comic fans may remember these fondly, while new fans and the uninitiated will be able to enjoy them without destroying their prized possessions!
Inspired by the classic 1970’s program where different stamps could be clipped from the letters page of Marvel books, fans will be able to collect stamps featuring all their favorite Marvel characters. These stamps will be on inserts within the regular cover editions for all first issue Marvel Legacy titles, beginning with titles debuting in October. And a proper homage to these collectible stamps wouldn’t be complete without a collectible stamp album – to be revealed!
Don’t miss your chance to enjoy a part of Marvel’s history…as you dive into its past and future. Be sure to stop by your local comic shop this fall to collect your Marvel Value Stamp today! Collect all 53 stamps during the Marvel Legacy run.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Way back in the olden days, these stamps were actually inside the comic book on one of the pages and you would need to cut them out to collect them. I didn’t do this and admit that it sure made purchasing some of the older comics a little harder to do. One doesn’t want a comic book with something cut out of it at the end of the day so that makes me like their new process of having this be a removable piece. Do you readers think this is something cool to bring back and will you be hunting them down? Let me know in the comments section below. I am more of a trading cards guy so hopefully we will get some kind of card set being released as well. Until next time.
