This is a glossy Very Good copy of the prized 16-page 1969 Marvelmania Club Catalog. When The Merry Marvel marching Society was deemed too expensive too maintain by Martin Goodman, yet Stan Lee protesting that it was great public relations, the fan club was licensed to over to independent hands at the new Marvelmania International. This catalog came as part of the first membership kit. The action-packed cover, with pencils and inks by Jack Kirby, features Captain America, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, the Fantastic Four, and Doctor Doom.

Inside are all kinds of rare Marvelous merchandise offerings that would tickle any Marvel Zombie's fancy today including:
