MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS WORTH A BUCK EACH

By 12.15.09

To hook new readers, Marvel is putting out a new (and modestly titled) line called Marvel’s Greatest Comics, featuring reissues of Marvel #1 issues throughout March for $1 each, starting with a free giveaway of Invincible Iron Man #1. (Marvel hasn’t said how stores can qualify for the free comics, but it’ll be revealed in upcoming issues of the Marvel Mailer.)

Here’s the line up:

March 3: INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1

March 10: CAPTAIN AMERICA #1

March 17: WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ #1

March 24: THOR #1

March 31: PUNISHER MAX #1

Of course, Iron Man, Captain America and Thor make sense as they all have movies on the way (although, are adding a few new readers really going to add those Avengers-sized grosses?). But, the stomach-clenchingly cute Wizard of Oz and early-rise-of-the-Kingpin Punisher Max are interesting choices to round out the line. (The combo has got us picturing a Steve-Dillon-drawn Wizard of Oz. That Cowardly Lion would get a faceful of bullets the minute he tried that scaring Toto crap.)
