Marvel Tales is the title of three American comic-book series published by Marvel Comics, the first of them from the company's 1950s predecessor, Atlas Comics. It is additionally the title of two unrelated, short-lived fantasy/science fiction magazines.
In the 1960s, during the Silver Age of Comics, the series Marvel Tales began as a summer special, Marvel Tales Annual, for its first two issues (1964-1965). Like typical annuals of the time, these were 25¢ "giants", relative to the typical 12¢ comics of the time.
The following year, the series began running as initially a bi-monthly and later a monthly reprint title, featuring Spider-Man stories primarily, from # 3-291 (July 1966 - Nov. 1994).
