was a comics anthology in magazine format published in the United States by Marvel Comics. The series lasted for 34 issues, from Spring 1980 to February 1986. Similar to the US-licensed graphic-story magazine , it featured mature content oriented at an older audience than traditional American comic books, as well as offering its writers and artists ownership rights and royalties in place of the industry-standard work for hire contracts. It allowed regular Marvel Comics writers and artists to try out material that was deemed unsuitable for titles still subject to the Comics Code and also stories using Marvel Universe characters that were risque or non-canon. Unlike the earlier the majority of the material was newly commissioned. The title was edited by Archie Goodwin. Each issue usually featured a main story, a number of regular serials and short one offs by new artists. A must-have for the serious comics collector.
