Essential Marvel is a line of American comic book reprints. It consists in a series of black-and-white paperbacks containing about 20-30 issues of mostly silver or bronze age Marvel comic book reprints each. They contain between 450 and 650 pages, and coarse, matte-quality paper is used. Previously sold at $14.95 US, volumes now carry a suggested retail price of $16.99 US.
In the same way that the DC Archive Editions are DC Comics' equivalent of Marvel Masterworks, Showcase Presents is their equivalent of the Essential line of reprints.
