Overview
-

Discover the astonishing history of modern American entertainment, seen through the eyes of a pop-culture icon who lived for nearly 100 years.

Stan Lee: How Marvel Changed the World is not just another biography. It is a journey through twentieth century American history, seen through the life of a man who personified the American Dream.

This book shows how Stan Lee’s life reflects the evolution of American entertainment, society and popular culture throughout the 1900s and beyond. Along the way, bold questions will be asked. Was Stan Lee himself a superhuman creation, just a mask to protect his true, more complicated secret identity? Just like the vibrant panels of the comics he wrote, Lee’s life, it seems, is never black and white.

Sourced from Lee’s own words, this book also includes brand new and exclusive interviews with Marvel comic book creators, for whom Lee’s work proved an invaluable inspiration. Upbeat, accessible and fun, this book is told with a glint in the eye and a flair for the theatrical that would make Stan Lee proud.

This is a bold celebration of the power of storytelling and a fitting tribute to Stan Lee’s enduring legacy. Excelsior!
