Synopsis: Based on interviews with Stan Lee and dozens of his colleagues and contemporaries, as well as extensive archival research, this book provides a professional history, an appreciation, and a critical exploration of the face of Marvel Comics. Recognized as a dazzling writer, a skilled editor, a relentless self-promoter, a credit hog, and a huckster, Stan Lee rose from his humble beginnings to ride the wave of the 1940s comic books boom and witness the current motion picture madness and comic industry woes. Included is a complete examination of the rise of Marvel Comics, Lee’s work in the years of postwar prosperity, and his efforts in the 1960s to revitalize the medium after it had grown stale.

About the Author: Jordan Raphael has written for numerous publications, including "The New York Times," "Los Angeles Times," and "The Globe and Mail." He lives in Los Angeles. Tom Spurgeon edited "The Comics Journal" and has written for Seattle's "The Stranger." His syndicated newspaper comic strip, "Wildwood," appeared in more than 12 million homes daily. He lives in Silver City, New Mexico.
Tom Spurgeon is the co-creator of the award-winning The Comics Reporter, which publishes journalism, criticism, and history, and the co-writer of a Stan Lee biography. He edited The Comics Journal for five years. He currently lives in Ohio, where he is organizing the Cartoon Crossroads Columbus convention.
