About this product
- DescriptionStan Lee is the most legendary name in the history of comic books. The leading creative force behind the rise of Marvel Comics, he brought to life some of the world's best-kwn heroes and most infamous villains. His stories, featuring super-heroes who struggled against personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity, added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good v evil. Lee put the human in the super-human. In the process, he created a new mythology for the twentieth century. In this full-colour graphic memoir illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran, Stan Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. He moves from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, followed by military training films during World War II, through the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to his current resurgence in movies. This will be a must-have for all fans of comic books and graphic vels.
- Author BiographyStan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. Nevertheless: Having begun his career with wartime Timely Comics and staying the course throughout the Atlas era, Stan the Man made comic-book history with Fantastic Four #1, harbinger of a bold new perspective in story writing that endures to this day. With some of the industry's greatest artists, he introduced hero after hero in Incredible Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men and more, forming a shared universe for rival publishers to measure themselves against. After an almost literal lifetime of writing and editing, Lee entered new entertainment fields and earned Marvel one opportunity after another. He remains one of Marvel's best-known public representatives.
