Celebrating Marvel’s Biggest Stories
These new Giant-Sized one-shots are in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the original series. Back in the 1970s, Marvel released Giant-Size Super-Stars #1, kicking off a series of larger-than-life issues. Over the next 50 years, these Giant-Sized comics celebrated some of Marvel’s biggest moments.
Now, Marvel is bringing the series back to honor the anniversary. Throughout 2024, new Giant-Size issues will feature new stories with some of the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe. These new stories will be accompanied by reprints of some of the most influential and popular stories throughout Marvel.
Cody Ziglar and Iban Coello’s Giant-Size Spider-Man #1 is the first large issue to be released. It features a new story with Miles Morales facing off against Dylan Brock.
