Description - Marvel Visionaries Stan Lee HC by Stan Lee

In celebration of its 65th anniversary, the House of Ideas proudly presents a timeless testament to another true Marvel visionary! In 1961, writer Stan Lee penned "Fantastic Four" numbered 1, an historic issue unlike any comic book that had come before. This super-hero team had true personalities - they doubted their own abilities, battled problems of money and illness, and even fought among themselves. The monumental popularity of this realistic comic-book style inspired Lee to create similarly themed titles - including "Hulk", "X-Men", and "Avengers" with artist Jack Kirby; and "Amazing Spider-Man" with artist Steve Ditko. By 1965, Lee had successfully established Marvel Comics as a cohesive universe populated by world-famous comic-book characters. Now, this deluxe keepsake edition collects his greatest moments - some never before reprinted: "Captain America Foils the Traitor's Revenge" ("Captain America Comics" numbered 3): Stan's first story, a two-page text piece!; "The Red Skull's Deadly Revenge" ("Captain America Comics" numbered 16): The defining Golden Age Red Skull story!; "The Raving Madman" ("Suspense" numbered 29): Stan's satire on Frederick Wertham and the comics witch hunts of the 50s!; "Your Name Is Frankenstein!" ("Menace" numbered 7): A modern Frankenstein story, featuring many of the elements of the later Marvel books!; "Where Walks the Ghost" ("Amazing Adult Fantasy" numbered 11): A short, twist-ending story by Lee and Ditko! Plus: "Spider-Man" ("Amazing Fantasy" numbered 15); and "A Visit With the Fantastic Four" ("Fantastic Four" numbered 11). This deluxe keepsake edition also collects: "How Stan and Steve Create Spider-Man" ("Amazing Spider-Man Annual" numbered 1); "In Mortal Combat with Sub-Mariner" ("Daredevil" numbered 7); "The Final Chapter" ("Amazing Spider-Man" numbered 33); "Bedlam in the Baxter Building" ("Fantastic Four Annual" numbered 3); "And Who Shall Mourn for Him?" ("Silver Surfer" numbered 5); "Brother, Take My Hand" ("Daredevil") numbered 47; "And Now, The Goblin," "In the Grip of the Goblin," and "The Goblin's Last Stand" (from "Amazing Spider-Man" numbered 96-98); "No Longer Alone" ("Captain America" numbered 110); "No More the Thunder God," "When Gods Go Mad," and "One God Must Fall" (from "Thor" numbered 179-181); "While the World Spins Mad" ("Marvel Premiere" numbered 3); and "The Circle of Life" ("Spectacular Spider-Man Super-Special 1995")!
