This month sees another exciting launch from our friends over at Washington Green who have published six new Marvel images to join the bestselling ‘Superheroes’ portfolio, in collaboration with Choice Fine Art. The new works pay tribute to some of Marvel’s most memorable characters; Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, the X-Men and Wolverine – a character published as part of the series for the first time.
Each of the limited edition prints are hand signed by Stan Lee, 92, comic book writer, editor and former chairman of Marvel comics. Lee led the expansion of Marvel comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation during an era now referred to as The Marvel Revolution.
With comic archive Comichron estimating sales reached a new 20 year high in 2014, the demand for collector’s items and comic paraphernalia continues to grow. When Washington Green published its deluxe ‘Superheroes: Editions of 9’ collection earlier this year (March 2015) it became the company’s fastest selling series to date – some editions sold out in a record five minutes across its nationwide network of Castle Fine Art galleries!
Ian Weatherby-Blythe, Managing Director for Washington Green Fine Art and Castle Fine Art said:
“With comic book sales increasing year on year, it’s no surprise that there is a growing appetite for our ‘Superheroes’ collection, which has proved our most popular series ever.
“There’s no doubt that Marvel has had a huge impact on popular culture over the last 50 years. Now people have a chance to own their own piece of history with six new works penned and inked by some of the greatest artists of the comic book industry published as limited edition pieces.”
Our amazing PR team have been working to secure over 51 pieces of nationwide coverage, with print and online publications including; Birmingham Mail, Birmingham Mail Online, Edinburgh Evening News, Time Out Birmingham, and Surrey Advertiser announcing the exhibition, with more coverage to follow in the coming weeks!
