The Marvel Comic Book Library Collection, Collector's Edition Vol. 1 (available for PC or Mac), from Topics Entertainment, collects an impressive array of important Marvel comics, primarily from the sixties, on one CD-Rom for only $29.99 (MSRP).


Included are the first ten Silver Age appearances of ten major Marvel superheroes (or teams).  The superheroes featured are Spider-Man (1962), Daredevil (yellow costume; 1964), Captain America (his rebirth after being frozen in ice for decades; 1964), Iron Man (1963), Namor the Sub-Mariner (1962), The Incredible Hulk (1962), and the Silver Surfer (1966). The teams are The Fantastic Four (1961), The (new) X-Men (1975), and The Avengers (1963).


In addition to reproductions of the comics, there will also be character bios, wallpaper, movie posters and screensavers.


The price, given the 100 historical issues contained starring many of the most famous Marvel superheroes of the Silver Age, should prove attractive to buyers, especially given the great timing of holiday gift sales looming right around the corner.


If this collection sells up to expectations, there is no doubt there will be more to come.
