Description: Marvel Comics marks its 80th birthday in 2019. Many of the classic superheroes we celebrate were created in the 1960s, and in the 1970s a UK Marvel imprint was created for British fans. ‘Captain Britain Weekly’ was launched in 1976, featuring the adventures of the first Marvel UK superhero, closely followed by another British character, Union Jack. Both these take their place in the ranks of superheroes in the stamps.
The PSB contains five panes and have the following postmarks:
