2000-10s Reprint Books

updated 9/17/2012


Backpack Marvel Digests (2000)

These are digest-sized, b&w reprints containing 1970s and 1980s material. They didn't sell well so this series was discontinued. I guess fans didn't like the smaller size or the b&w pages.

The Spider-Man issues were reprinted in color in Spider-Man Megazine. The X-Men issues were reprinted in color in Classic X-Men and partly in the Uncanny X-Men: From The Ashes TPB. They have also been reprinted in b&w in the Essential X-Men TPBs. Part of the Avengers issues were reprinted in color in the Avengers: Yesterday Quest TPB, but most of these reprints are new.

Despite the format, these are prime stories. The Avengers' volume features art by John Byrne, still at the peak of his artistry. The Spider-Man volume is by Roger Stern and John Romita Jr. The X-Men volume is by Chris Claremont and Paul Smith. They are all worth getting if you haven't read these issues already.

Post Heroes Reborn TPBs (2000s)

These TPBs reprint comics published after Heroes Reborn. Some other books are listed under their characters. I don't follow the current Marvel Universe so this list is not comprehensive and probably won't be updated. More recent lists can be found elsewhere on the web, such as www.tplist.com.

Wizard Magazine's Masterpiece Edition HCs (2003-06)

Wizard Magazine has offered fancy reprints over the years. All of the stories have been reprinted before. There were the Wizard Ace Edition comics and the Masterpiece Edition hardcovers.

The Masterpiece Editions were deluxe hardcovers that reprinted Wizard's top 10 stories for that character. They also included bonuses such comments from various writers and artists.

The later edition paperbacks are published by Panini Publishing and seemed to be only available in the United Kingdom.
