The Stan Lee Story

Collector’s Edition of 1,000 numbered copies
Signed by Stan Lee

The mostly true tale of Stan Lee: an unparalleled, Giant-Size extravaganza, eight years in the making, about the one and only Godfather of Comics. From his childhood in Depression-era New York, to making Marvel into the number one comics publisher in the world, to his modern-day reinvention as Chief Creative Officer of global entertainment company POW! Entertainment, Stan “the Man” Lee stands the test of time as the most legendary name in comicbook history.

Lee’s tale is told in this Collector’s Edition by his successor at Marvel, renowned comics writer, editor, and historian Roy Thomas, who brings “you are there” insights and wide-eyed clarity to key moments of Lee’s journey to pop culture immortality. Featuring hundreds of treasures of comicbook art, a novel-length essay by Thomas, a foreword written by Lee himself, and intimate photographs sourced straight from his family archives, this is a titanic tribute worthy of the Man, not only in breadth but also in sheer size. 

This Collector’s Edition of 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by Stan Lee, includes:

  • A foreword by Stan Lee and in-depth career biography by Roy Thomas
  • Complete facsimile comic book reprints of Stan’s greatest hits and coveted rarities from throughout the decades, true to original size, tipped-in throughout the book; plus a separately bound reissue of Stan Lee’s 1947 Secrets Behind the Comics!
  • More than 1,000 images, including intimate photographs and artifacts from Stan and Joan Lee’s personal archives, and new reproductions of original art and rare comic books from the vaults of the world’s premier Marvel collectors
  • Printed on archival paper and presented in an acrylic slipcase
