Coming November 3, 2015: Amazing Fantastic Incredible, an autobiographical graphic novel from the most influential man in superhero comics—and the man whose comic creations remade the Hollywood blockbuster. But will this 192-page chronicle of Stan Lee’s life, already a well-known story for many comics fans, be a good read?
Here’s the blurb from the website of publisher Simon & Schuster, where the book is available for pre-order:
In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color 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 iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be.
Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life—and into the mainstream—some of the world’s 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.
