Marvel Tales Annual (1964): 1-2

Marvel Tales (1966): 3-33

Marvel Tales Annuals #1-2 were square-bound comics that reprinted various origin stories. Marvel Tales #3-33 were also giant-sized and usually reprinted Spider-Man, Human Torch, Thor, and Ant-Man/Wasp stories, mostly in sequential order.

The last six issues started focusing exclusively on Spider-Man and Dr. Strange. There was also an Iron Man reprint and a new Angel story. With issue 34, Marvel Tales became a regular-sized comic that reprinted stories from Amazing Spider-Man.

Marvel Tales and Marvel Collectors' Item Classics 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. The Marvel Boy stories are reprinted in Atlas Heroes Masterworks Vol. 1 and the new Angel story is reprinted in X-Men Masterworks Vol. 5.
