The gallery will unveil 10 prints.
Comic book fans will have the chance to get their hands on Washington Green’s new Marvel superheroes collection, which has been hand-signed by Stan Lee.
The 10 new prints are set to be unveiled at Bluewater’s Castle Galleries at midday on Saturday (March 19).
The artworks were created in collaboration with Marvel’s fine art publisher Choice Fine Art.
The new superheroes collection features a selection of iconic Marvel comic book covers dating from the 1960s to the present day.
It includes much-loved characters The Amazing Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers, The Invincible Iron Man, Wolverine and X-Men – all of which were created during Stan Lee’s time at Marvel.
Each piece of artwork is individually hand-signed by Mr Lee, who has been credited with introducing complex characters with both light and dark qualities to the industry, in a difference from the archetypal American superhero.
Peter Gilby, gallery manager at Bluewater’s Castle Galleries, said: “With comic book sales increasing year on year, and the success of films such as Marvel’s Deadpool at the box office, it’s no surprise that our superheroes collections have proved some of the company’s most popular to date.
“Marvel has had a huge impact on popular culture – I think we can all relate to its very human characters in some way. This collection will appeal to both art collectors and superhero fans alike - giving them the chance to own a slice of comic book history.”
The new Marvel Superheroes: Editions of 9 collection will be available to buy from Castle Galleries.
The 10 limited edition prints cost £2,950 each.
