Marvel Liquidating Essential Line To Retailers

STK293628Marvel's Essential Line are, basically, phone books. Black and white reprints of Marvel Comics stories, hundreds of pages for not that much money, on newsprint paper.

Well, Marvel are going to make them even cheaper for retailers, burning through the titles below at pennies on the dollar, and giving retailers a third Essential volume for every two they order, effectively making each volume cost a small fraction of what a new monthly issue of a comic costs.

So expect retailers to be offering massive deals on the following items – and then for them suddenly to go out of print. It's the Marvel way…

Essential Captain America Volume 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7.

Essential Classic X-Men Vol 2

Essential Daredevil Vol 4 and 6

Essential Defenders Vol 4, 5, 6, 7
