Being a solid DC fan throughout my formative comic years, I missed out on much of Stan Lee’s presence – he was Marvel through and through, of course, so I didn’t have much contact with his creations.
You had to be living under a rock, though, to not know about him or what he’d done. It’s a shame some of his collaborators – particularly Jack Kirby – aren’t such household names to those outside of comics, but there’s no denying that Lee was one of the giants in the industry . . . and now he’s dead.
This cover probably won’t be used much over the coming days but these stories are the only thing I have in my collection written by Stan Lee.
Not his best work in terms of dialogue, but the ideas are there. How different things could have been.
