MARVEL Plans First SUB-MARINER Epic Collection

Dive in with Lee, Kirby and Colan…

Marvel in 2021 is finally planning on publishing its first Namor, the Sub-Mariner Epic Collection, according to a listing on Amazon.

Thing is, it’s not clear what exactly is in the book — subtitled Enter the Sub-Mariner.

Here’s what we know:

— The 408-page paperback is scheduled for April 27, 2021 (which usually means a week or two earlier in comics shops). It’s priced at $39.99.

— There is no description and no issue list, but the cover credits Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Gene Colan. The listing adds Dick Ayers and Wally Wood.

— Adding that up, my take is that the book will include all of Subby’s Silver Age appearances — including his Tales to Astonish run — short of the launch of his 1968 solo book. There’s no mention of Roy Thomas or John Buscema, which lends credence to that. Either way, time will tell.

— Standard caveat: This has obviously not been solicited by Marvel yet, so nothing is official until it’s official. Even then, things can change. Just keep coming to 13th Dimension for updates.

  1. I enjoyed those early stories. Colan’s work here, in DD and Ironman were some of his best.

  2. I loved how Namor would woooo over Sue Storm of the Fantastic four, but was a male Chauvanist to all other female surface dwellers!
