In his honor, we present to you works about him, works he created, and works he inspired.

RIP, Stan Lee. Excelsior!! 


Stan Lee, Peter David, Colleen Doran
Description: In this graphic memoir, Stan Lee--comic book legend and cocreator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes--shares his legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be. Stan Lee has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life--and into the mainstream--some of the best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories--filled with superheroes struggling with 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 vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth century. In this illustrated graphic memoir--illustrated by artist Colleen Doran--Lee tells the story of his life with the same wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career--From statement provided by publisher.
