Offering a 9-issue, semi-consecutive lot of the first series of _Marvel Fanfare_. This deluxe, bi-monthly showcase series was a way for Marvel to spotlight some of its rising stars while giving writers a chance to stretch the bounds of established characters. It was notable for stepping beyond the usual “try-out” series to feature many beautiful and compelling stories. Each issue features 36 pages of material with no advertisements on magazine-style slick paper. It was quite expensive at the time, double the price of most standard issues that were produced on newsprint. The lot features these issues (see photos for covers):
#1 (March 1982) - featuring stories by Claremont/McKenzie and art by Golden, Smith, Byrne, Miller
#2 (May 1982) - featuring stories by Claremont/McKenzie and art by Golden, Von Eeden
#4 (September 1982) - featuring stories by Claremont/Kraft and art by Golden, Smith, Winn
#5 (November 1982) - featuring stories by Claremont/McKenzie and art by Rogers, Russell, McDonnell
#6 (January 1983) - featuring stories by Barr/Stern and art by Plunkett/Vess
#10 (August 1983) - featuring stories by Macchio/Pérez/Duffy and art by Pérez/Layton
#11 (November 1983) - featuring Macchio/Duffy and art by Pérez
#12 (January 1984) - featuring Macchio/Nocenti and art by Pérez
#19 (March 1985) - featuring story by Mantlo and art by Salmons, Leonardi, Gammill
All issues are in excellent condition with cover gloss and color intact and minimal spine stress. Of course I'd be happy to combine shipping with any of my other items (you may message me for an updated invoice or I can refund any extra shipping paid).
