New Issue: Marvel to revive ‘Marvel Value Stamp’ program this fall

This fall, Marvel Entertainment will revive a piece of Cinderella stamp history as part of its Marvel Legacy, which will see 53 comic book franchises relaunched with new “Marvel Value Stamps.”

The Marvel Value Stamp program, which originally ran in two series from 1974-76, will be brought back to life with the issuance of 53 Cinderella stamps, one for each series included in the Marvel Legacy relaunch.

Each series of the original Marvel Value Stamp program featured 100 Cinderellas printed in different issues of Marvel comics at the time. Readers were invited to “clip ’em” or collect them in a stamp album sold by Marvel.

This Cinderella stamp depicting Iron Man was included in issue #24 (January 1975) of Master of Kung-Fu, which was published by Marvel from 1974-83.

The new program will feature 53 Cinderella stamps printed on inserts included inside each title. This method will save readers from destroying their comic books to get to the stamps—a concern voiced by collectors of the original Marvel Value Stamps.

Similar to the previous program, Marvel will also offer a stamp album along with a checklist of each title.

The first Marvel Legacy titles and accompanying Marvel Value Stamps will be issued in October.
