From solicitations and from the TFwiki (which doesn't reference any sources), we knew that the UK classics would reprint the Marvel UK run in order with notes by James Roberts. But we didn't know how it would all work and how the comics were reproduced. The extensive introduction should surely bring anyone up to speed on the scope, conception, and production of Marvel UK comics. It also contains all cover reprints, albeit in miniature. It additionally has the lovely annual cover as the first leaf so you can write your name in it! The covers, including the covers for UK reprints of US comics: Each issue gets at least two pages worth of introduction with the additional sections titled "continuity" and "reprints" that notes how the Marvel UK fits in with the Marvel US story lines. The comics themselves are reduced from their original size somewhat to fit the American publishing standards. This is nowhere stated in the introduction or preface but I gather from the dimensions that the comics are preserved in their proportions. This may matter to some. I include a photo of the Man of Iron to demonstrate. The page is about 6 3/4 x 10" and the comics panels take up about 5 7/8 x 8 3/16". Text stories are also reprinted: Colors and reproduction are handled the same as the Marvel US reprints. Lots of extras, adverts, and give aways are cataloged. This is just a small sample. The extra stuff included feels a lot like the Transformers Vault did to me. Advertisment: Some give-aways and the general introduction: Extras: I'm an American from a landlocked state (Minnesota) and there's a lot surrounding the Marvel UK run I don't know and can't appreciate. But I've waited and wanted to have this IDW run and look forward to other issues.
