About Marvel Comics
Marvel Worldwide, Inc. es una editorial de cómics estadounidense creada en 1939, inicialmente con el nombre de Timely Publication.
Con este nombre comenzaron a publicar de la mano de un joven empresario de 31 años llamado Martin Goodman, que había comenzado su carrera como empresario a los 29 años, con una pequeña editorial de revistas pulp llamada Western Fiction Publishing. Al igual que otros editores de pulps de la época, Goodman decidió ampliar su editorial hacia el floreciente negocio de los cómics en 1939 y para ello contrató los servicios de Funnies Inc., un taller de escritores y dibujantes especializado en crear cómics para editoriales que no tenían el dinero o el tiempo suficiente para crear su propia plantilla (cómic shop).
En 1951 Goodman decidió hacer cambios para hacer más competitiva la editorial y más rentable el negocio; posteriormente creó su propia distribuidora, Atlas News, que se encargaba de llevar a los puntos de venta tanto sus cómics como sus revistas. A partir de ese momento, los cómics de Goodman aparecieron bajo el logo de Atlas.
Entre 1957 y hasta 1968, Marvel Comics había sido una empresa con escasa organización interna. Stan Lee funcionaba como principal guionista, editor literario y artístico, mientras que el dibujante Sol Brodsky (sustituido posteriormente por John Verpoorten) se ocupaba de los aspectos más técnicos, como la redacción de contratos, control de las fechas de entrega y los contactos con la imprenta. No obstante, el aumento de la carga de trabajo de Lee y la mejora de las ventas permitió contratar a nuevos guionistas, dejando algunas de las series en manos de los jóvenes escritores Roy Thomas, Denny O'Neil y Gary Friedrich.
A partir de los años 70, la compañía se posicionó como una de las principales editoriales de cómics del país. En agosto de 2009, la multinacional Walt Disney compró Marvel Entertainment por cuatro mil millones de dólares.
Entre sus personajes emblemáticos del género superheroico se encuentran Spider-Man, Capitán América, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Deadpool, Avengers, Wolverine, Daredevil, los X-Men, Luke Cage e Inhumanos, entre otros.
La Editorial Alvi Books le dedicó, como tributo y reconocimiento, este espacio en Amazon en 2017.
