    "Here is a novel that contains both the hopeful resilience of childhood and the shadow of despair. It takes graphic novels seriously as an art form and gives no easy answers. What a find."

Stan Lee Presents…er, *Meets*

what does everyone think of this STAN LEE MEETS… Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and all these other characters?

they’ve got my buddy’s boy Bendis on the line for one of them, right, and Joss Whedon, whose Astonishing X-Men is definitely all that, BUT… what’s the deal man? just more cornball hype? it’s cool that Stan created all these characters and has done all this stuff but he hasn’t even worked at Marvel for the longest time! Do you even know when the last time was? I don’t. He shows up in all the movies in cameos (was in Man-Thing? I have blotted that out from my mind), but the last time the guy made any news with Marvel was when he sued them!

What’s the deal? Why the big PR campaign for Stan?

    After Infinite Crisis and the fact that it went nowhere – compare it to Identity Crisis, just for starters – and Marvel’s weirdness about the Civil War delays, I know personally I’m pretty skeptical of any of the marketing hype coming out of the big two right now. That said, it’s STAN, man! There might be comics and everything, but it’s STAN LEE we’re talking about. There wouldn’t be comics as we know them without that the guy. I don’t think it’s bad that they’re doing a tribute to a guy who started at Timely/Marvel when he was 16! That’s pretty cool, isn’t it?
