Stan Lee is an American icon. Creator of many of the most famous comic characters of all time, Stan is almost as much of a character as the fictional figures he has penned in his 70-plus year career as a writer. Stan may best be known as the face of Marvel Comics. He was there from the time it was known as Atlas in the 40's and 50's, through the company's heydays in the 60's and 70's. He is credited as creator or co-creator of properties such as Spiderman, Silver Surfer, The Fantastic Four, The Avengers, DareDevil and The X-Men; many of which would become multi-media sensations. Throughout the years Stan has become more of an icon than a writer. He can be seen in many Marvel films. And he is a regular on the comic book circuit making appearances with his trademark Excelsior! catch-phrase. Tamon Ohta is a veteran comic artist. He was the 2006 SquareEnix GI GanGan Award winner for comics. Heroman will be his first series published in English.
