Almost ten years in the making, The Stan Lee Story traces the incredible life and legacy of Stan Lee, from his Depression-era upbringing through his years catapulting Marvel to the top of the comicbook publishing charts to his time as the Chief Creative Officer of Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment.
Undoubtedly, this colossal volume is unmatched in size and scope. With a forward written by Stan Lee himself and over 1,000 images, some of which came from Stan’s personal archives, The Stan Lee Story serves as a quintessential masterpiece on the comicbook industry’s most legendary name.
Stan’s story is told with astounding insight by comics writer, editor, and historian Roy Thomas – along with valuable input from Stan The Man too, of course! Not did Roy succeed Stan as Marvel’s Editor in Chief, but he worked alongside the Godfather of Comics for over 50 years. That experience has provided him a keen clarity and perception of Stan’s life, work and indelible cultural impact that few others can boast.
