Marvel Collectors' Item Classics (1965): 1-22

Marvel Collectors' Item Classics was a giant-sized title that usually reprinted Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, and Tales of the Watcher stories. There were also sporadic Ant-Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, and Tales of Asgard reprints. The reprints are complete but not always in sequential order.

Marvel Collectors' Item Classics and Marvel Tales were the main Silver Age reprint titles. Both were thick, squarebound comics priced at 25 cents. Everything here except the Watcher stories have been reprinted in their respective Masterworks. The Watcher stories will be reprinted in an upcoming Marvel Rarities Masterworks.

Marvel Collectors' Item Classics later became Marvel's Greatest Comics and kept the same numbering.
