On August 31, 1939, Marvel Comics #1 opened the doors to the Marvel Universe for the first time ever, creating a tapestry of Super Heroes and stories that have gone on to shape pop culture for generations of fans around the world. As Marvel continues to celebrate its 80th anniversary this year, join fans everywhere to celebrate Marvel’s Birthday on August 31 — starting with an all-new commemorative piece of art by comic book legend Adam Kubert!

“Going back to Marvel’s inception in 1939, Marvel Comics #1 was the spark that led to the Marvel Universe we know today,” said Dan Buckley, President of Marvel Entertainment. “As one of the most influential milestones in Marvel history, August 31 is the perfect day to officially honor Marvel’s birthday.”

Marvel will be celebrating its birthday with a week of festivities and events at various retailers and Marvel exhibitions and experiences, including the historic debut of Marvel Comics #1000!

As a massive, oversized, special edition book, Marvel Comics #1000 will feature the greatest array of luminaries from both classic and current comic books (and beyond!), revealing a long-kept secret and some startling discoveries along the way. Participating comic shops will be hosting Marvel birthday party events and will have a brand-new edition of the Marvel Universe Magazine available free to customers. This magazine will feature exclusive art and behind-the-scenes content for some of Marvel’s top comic releases in the fall, so readers will surely want to pick this up along with Marvel Comics #1000!

In addition to comic shops, stores around the country including Disney Store, Amazon, Box Lunch, and FYE will be hosting Marvel birthday celebrations with new and exclusive merchandise, special offers, giveaways, and more!
