4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for comic enthusiasts, 27 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Excelsior: The Amazing Life Of Stan Lee (Hardcover)
Stan Lee has written his autobiography much the way he has written to his Marvel fans, in an easy going and informal style sprinkled with humour. We are invited to see how as a talented writer from a depression-era family, he had his first taste of comics, to soon join the Army (in which he frequently saves the world by indirect means), and finally returning to comics to co-found Marvel. He elaborates on how comics have come of age from the humble comic strip, pass the Golden Age of Comics, to the current Hollywood craze about all things with costumes. This book will be an interesting read for both the young and old who know of Fantastic Four, Spiderman, the Incredible Hulk and the X-Men and wish to know of the man behind the scenes, glimpses of how he created them and his thoughts and musings. Amongst these, he reveals the reason for the near-conspiratorial pattern of character names from Reed Richards (R.R.), Bruce Banner (B.B.), Peter Parker (P.P.), Jonah Jameson (J.J.). All in all, a very enjoyable book and at 250 pages, it is very light and readable in one sitting.
