By S.G.S TOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 3 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Just announced there is a 2nd print coming in December, just in time for X-mas. This is good news for anyone looking to get their hands on this wonderful set. The only thing missing from the reprinted set is the Stan Lee autographed poster ( a big factor for us collectors )

$315 is a good price for this. Retail is $500 and if you add up the cost of all these 11 books you get a pretty good deal. As far as I know Marvel is set to start shipping these books for individual purchase in 2015 so if there is only a couple you want you may want to hold off and buy them that way, ieMarvel Masterworks: The Amazing Spider-Man Volume 1 (New Printing). Amazon prices are around $36 per book. You will of course not get the Avengers mansion slipcase ( which is awesome BTW ) if you go this route. Also you should know that most of these stories are being repinted in Marvels EPIC collections ie. Fantastic Four Epic Collection: The World's Greatest Comic Magazine. which is cheaper still and come with more issues per book.

All that said this collection is amazing. Some of the best starts to Marvels greatest characters. Spiderman, Thor, Silver Age Cap with a new printing and wonderful covers and spines that add up to the picture in the Amazon listing. This is a great way to read all of Marvels wonderful Silver Age firsts. In the years to come I expect this set will be in high demand with very few available in the world of Ebays, and 3rd party sellers. I suggest you pre-order one of the 2nd prints coming in December if you want one.

Really worth the cover pice Nov. 16 2014
By Gabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The slipcase is gorgeous, the contents epic.
The Marvel Masterworks included inside are new editions (which will be sold individually in 2015), most of them containing extra content: Stan Lee texts from "Son of Origins", unused cover art, ads from the time, and best of all- the complete original pencils by Steve Ditko for Amazing Fantasy #15.
Unless you already own all of these volumes in hardcover, jump at the chance to get them all together while supplies last. As it is, this slipcase is an unprecedented way of presenting one of the greatest pop culture productions ever
Beautiful. Dec 16 2014

Such a beautiful piece of work/art. I haven't opened it fully but I opened it enough to inspect the product and everything looks great. The volumes are fantastic, the art work is beautiful, the poster with Stan Lee's signature is something I'll frame one day. Get this before it runs out and has a higher price. I got this set at $300.00, still would have liked to save a little more but it's worth it.
Great for Marvel lovers! Dec 13 2014

Great presentation and quality! I gave this as a gift to my husband and was really impressed with the whole set of hardcover books and the box that holds them. Warning - it is heavy to lift the whole thing!
