4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting selection 27 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought most of the Marvel Firsts and this is a decent addition to the series. Stopped buying comics in the early 80s so many of the stories and characters are not so familiar as the Marvel Firsts 60s / 70s. As a historical snapshot of 1980s - 1983 Marvel comics, this is very useful book. It would have been even better if the book had an included a summary (lengthy or otherwise) of the period as an introduction (as with the Marvel Masterworks). The book also includes a superb selection of first issue / key issue covers for the released titles of the period. Many of the covers I have seen over my years at comic conventions but I was still surprised by the number of titles I have never seen or even heard about. I assume there will be a few additional volumes for the 80s and beyond ?? Still, wish Marvel would release a 1950s volume (or four)

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe I expected something different. 25 Dec 2013
By Letter Size - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book reminded me of what buying an album in the 80s was like; two or three great songs, and a whole bunch of stuff you never wanted.

I have the Marvel Firsts, 1960s, which I think is an excellent survey of early Marvel, and I expected to enjoy this one more than I did because the 80s Marvel is what I grew up reading. it has the New Mutants GN story (very cool) and Wolverine miniseries #1 (not as cool, been reprinted several times), Falcon miniseries #1, Contest of Champions #1 (which made me want to get #2 and #3 again), Ka-Zar #11 (11? why not #1), Dazzler #1, and then ... Crystar #1. A toy tie-in and promotional vehicle. Is that what made Marvel great in the 80s? If Marvel wanted to include a toy tie-in, it should have been GI Joe #1. It has some filler pages of first covers (and many covers were shown more than once on several different filler pages), but overall not too bad.

Maybe volume 2 will have more sensible and better stories (Web of Spider-Man #1, Punisher miniseries #1, The Nam #1, The Thing #1, Obnoxio #1, X-Factor #1, Moon Knight #1).
