Marvel Value Stamps HC
By Roy Thomas, Publisher: Harry N. Abrams $24.99, March 17, 2020, Pages: 368
No further details – but has to be some kind of history/reprinting of “the program that destroyed the value of countless Marvel comics.”
Marvel Classic Sticker Book
Publisher: Harry N. Abrams, March 3, 2020, $12.99, Pages: 76
No more details, but could just be a collection of random Marvel stickers, or could also be the bubblegum stickers from the 70s, considered classic by fans of a certain age.
Marvel Mini Books HC
By Mark Evanier, Geoff Spear, Publisher: Harry N. Abrams, April 7, 2020, $29.99, Pages: 384
No more details, but almost certainly reprints the world’s smallest comics from 1966 along with some historical context. The Spider-Man mini book also has the first Spider-Man / Superman team-up. Sort of.
