Each volume in the series will have an extra large trim size, similar to the size of the original art. Instead of recoloring the original production art, Taschen opted to photograph high-grade comics, which the publisher worked with both CGC and Marvel to obtain. The high-resolution photographs were then retouched as needed to correct registration errors and remove flaws, with the intent of re-creating look of the original comics as closely as possible. The volumes will be printed on three different paper stocks, including one designed to replicate the feel of the original paper, and each volume includes a historical essay as well as photos and other extras.
This volume will be followed by three more collections: Avengers. Vol. 1. 1963–1965, Fantastic Four. Vol. 1. 1961–1963, and Captain America. All three are scheduled to be published in 2022 and 2023.
