At the end of Namor, The first Mutant #1, there is a Saga section. Don't know if that counts because it's not a whole entire comic.
Also there's the 12 issue Saga of the Sub-Mariner series.

I decided not to include that and Saga of the Human Torch because they aren't really in the saga format; they read like regular comics. Same with the Saga of the High Evolutionary and of the Serpent Crown. But if people think they belong I will add them.

Good list. Marvel Saga should be official History, not Official Handbook. Agreed with only listing those Sagas that are in the format of selected panels being reprinted with new captions, as opposed to the likes of Saga of the Human Torch, which are as you say simply a regular comic spanning a long period of time.

Added Iron Man 2.0 #1. Revised the listings for All-New Wolverine Saga/Daken: Dark Wolverine #1 and Free Comic Book Day 2006/Ultimate Spider-Man #100.

CORRECTION: Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1 does NOT reprint Astonishing X-Men Saga. (It only reprints the cover.)

Added the reprinting of the X-Force portion of All New Wolverine Saga in Uncanny X-Force by Rick Remender Complete Collection Vol 1 tpb.

Re: Sagas

Looks like the upcoming Dawn of X will be a Saga book or something similar: https://www.cbr.com/x-men-dawn-of-x-condenses-hickman-saga/

Re: Sagas

I keep meaning to mention a quasi-Sagas book that came out this year:

Previously in Marvel Comics Recap Guide #1 September 2020.
Kind of like the recap pages that you see at the start of some comics. While such recaps are probably normally beyond the scope of this thread, since the entire issue is recaps, it kind of reads like a Sagas book, albeit one that jumps from topic to topic.

Yeah I had considered adding that. I think you're right—the fact that it's an entire book probably makes it worth including.

Re: Sagas

Just a suggestion, but back in the Capes (Optional) days you had a small separate section below the main list for "not quite Saga books" such as the Marvel No-Prize Book. If you are up for restoring that section, it might be nice to see, as there probably isn't anywhere else we can capture that kind of info.

Do you remember what else was in that section?

Re: Sagas

Sorry, I know it wasn't the only thing in that sub-section but the only reference threads I had up to date masters saved for were the ones I maintain myself.
