The End Of The Classic Premier Marvel Titles – Official

The End Of The Classic Premier Marvel Titles – OfficialThey've been missing from solicitations for a while. Now Marvel's Jeph York has confirmed it.

Okay, after three months of solicits with no Premiere Classic HCs in them, I should probably end the suspense and make this official:

Marvel has ended the Premiere Classic hardcover line.

They'll still be collecting modern series in Premiere-sized HCs, and the Omnibus, OHC and Masterworks programs are not in danger. But the Premiere Classic line is being put to bed with volume #107.

Sorry, guys. I know quite a few of you loved them.

Marvel Premiere Classic was a hardcover line that collected classic comics in a similar fashion to the way new comics were being collected, and had two covers, one with a standard cover, the other showing a cover of one of the comics inside, inset.

Marvel's bookstore sales have suffered a number of setbacks of late, and I know some retailers are just waiting for the now-inevitable liquidations before ordering large numbers.
