Taschen Publishes the First 21 Stories of Spider Man in a High Resolution, Extra-Large Format Art Book

Mar­vel Comics and art book pub­lish­er TASCHEN have announced an agree­ment to pub­lish Marvel’s rarest clas­sic comics “in their orig­i­nal glo­ry, in an extra-large for­mat.” And it all starts with Spi­der Man. The first vol­ume in the Mar­vel-TASCHEN series repro­duces the first 21 sto­ries of Spi­der Man, orig­i­nal­ly pub­lished between 1962–1964. TASCHEN has attempt­ed to “cre­ate an ide­al rep­re­sen­ta­tion of these books as they were pro­duced at the time of pub­li­ca­tion.” The edi­tions fea­ture super-high-res­o­lu­tion pho­tographs of each page, “using mod­ern retouch­ing tech­niques to cor­rect prob­lems with the era’s inex­pen­sive, imper­fect print­ing.”

You can explore the new Spi­der Man edi­tions here. The next titles in ‘The Mar­vel Comics Library’ series will be Avengers. Vol. 1. 1963–1965, Fan­tas­tic Four. Vol. 1. 1961–1963 and Cap­tain Amer­i­ca. They’re sched­uled for release in 2022 and 2023. Keep an eye out…
