Next year, Marvel fans around the world will celebrate the 80th anniversary of the brand’s storytelling, art and Super Heroes that continue to shape the pop culture realm.
Starting in January 2019, readers can explore a different decade of Marvel comics each month with the new eight-volume “Decades” collection series, which will feature iconic characters, stories, and themes from each Marvel era. Fans can relive the journeys of their favorite Super Heroes from the 1940s to the 2010s with this new collection, including Captain America, Spider-Man and more.

Cebulski, Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief. “To honor and celebrate this legacy, we can’t wait to share some new and exciting projects for the world to experience the history of the Marvel Universe – through comic books, video games, toys, blockbuster films, television shows and more.”
In addition to hosting some of Marvel’s most classic comics, each “Decades” collection will also include a decade-by-decade commentary that chronicles the evolution of the Marvel Universe and what inspired it.
