For its 80th anniversary, Marvel Comics is celebrating its history with 'decades' collections. Totaling eight paperbacks, each volume will include classic comics from the era, plus decade-by-decade commentary on the evolution of the Marvel Universe and the world that inspired it.

The four announced titles are:

  • Decades: Marvel in the '40s — The Human Torch vs. The Sub-Mariner
  • Decades: Marvel in the '50s — Captain America Strikes!
  • Decades: Marvel in the '60s — Spider-Man Meets The Marvel Universe
  • Decades: Marvel in the '70s — Legion of Monsters

In a statement, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Akira Yoshida said:

"After almost 80 years, our fans have continued to embrace Marvel's characters as their own, following their adventures through decades of thrilling stories. To honor and celebrate this legacy, we can't wait to share some new and exciting projects for the world to experience the history of the Marvel Universe — through comic books, video games, toys, blockbuster films, television shows and more."

He then added, "I can't wait until we get to the 2000s, so everyone can remember how good of a writer I am."

The remaining four titles will be announced at a later date.
