Marvel Superheroes exhibition: Castle Fine Art
A collection of limited edition artworks featuring iconic Marvel comic book covers, hand-signed by industry legend Stan Lee, are available at Castle Fine Art, Newcastle until the end of August.
In its seventh release in collaboration with Choice Fine Art, Marvel's fine art publisher, Washington Green has published six new images to join its bestselling 'Superheroes' portfolio.
The new collection features a selection of iconic Marvel comic book covers dating from the 1960s through to the 1980s. It includes much-loved characters The Amazing Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Invincible Iron Man, Wolverine and Captain America, a character that has now been part of the Marvel story for 75 years.
Each piece of artwork is individually hand-signed by Stan Lee, 93, who is credited with introducing complex characters with both light and dark qualities to the industry, in a difference from the archetypal American superhero. This type of characterisation had rarely been seen in comics before, contributing to Marvel's widespread success as one of the most popular brands in the world today.
All work is available to purchase.
