Mail Gets Marvelous with Marvel Heroes Stamps

With the success of the DC Comics Heroes stamps offered by the United States Postal Service earlier this year, there was no doubt a Marvel Comics heroes edition would follow suit. Earlier this year we learned that Marvel had indeed got themselves into the philatelic market and today the USPS unveiled the stamps to the public.

The USPS said of these stamps:

Marvel Super Heroes

Marvel Super Heroes will save the day when they arrive in July. The 10 stamps on a pane of 20 depict Captain America, Elektra, Iron Man, Silver Surfer, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Sub-Mariner, The Incredible Hulk, The Thing and Wolverine.

The other 10 stamps depict classic Marvel Comic book covers linked to the super heroes. Information about the artwork shown on each stamp appears on the back on the stamp pane.

The stamps are set to debut in 2007. Click the images below to enlarge. You can discuss these stamps with fellow Marvel fans right here on CBR's Marvel Comics Forum.
