Marvel Premiere Classic is a line of hardcover comic book collections, compiling older Marvel Comics series in a standardized reprint format.[1] One hundred seven volumes have been released, starting in 2006. Each edition features two covers—the standard cover[2] and a numbered "variant" cover for the comic book direct market, which are published in limited numbers and sport a matching trade dress design (the edition size is indicated on the back cover, on the dust jacket).[3][4] These are similar to Marvel Comics' Omnibus editions, some of which are released with classic comic covers and variant covers painted by comics artists such as Alex Ross, Marko Djurdjevic, Esad Ribic, or Olivier Coipel.

DC Comics' rough equivalent line of collections, the DC Comics Classics Library, launched in early 2009.

On August 15, 2012, it was announced that the line was canceled, ending with the 106th volume.[5][6]

On February 14, 2013, a 107th volume was announced showing that the line was not canceled.[7]
