About Stan Lee
Stanley Martin Lieber (Manhattan, Nueva York; 28 de diciembre de 1922 - Los Ángeles, California; 12 de noviembre de 2018), más conocido como Stan Lee, fue un escritor y editor de cómics estadounidense, además de productor y ocasional actor de cine. Es principalmente conocido por haber creado personajes icónicos del mundo del cómic tales como Spiderman, Hulk, Ironman, los 4 Fantásticos, Thor, los Vengadores, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, X-Men y Bruja escarlata, entre otros muchos superhéroes, casi siempre acompañado de los dibujantes Steve Ditko y Jack Kirby. El trabajo de Stan Lee fue fundamental para expandir Marvel Comics, llevándola de ser una pequeña casa publicitaria a una gran corporación multimedia. Todavía hoy, los cómics de Marvel se distinguen por indicar siempre «Stan Lee presenta» en los rótulos de presentación. También tuvo un programa televisivo en History Channel en donde buscaba superhumanos "reales".

Every year on Midsummer's Eve, Victor von Doom clashes with the forces of evil in a vain attempt to free his mother's soul from Hell. Only when Doctor Stephen Strange -- Master of the Mystic Arts and Earth's Sorcerer Supreme -- is convinced to join the fight, does the outcome have any hope of changing. But first these unlikely allies must journey to Mephisto's infernal realm ... where they find that the cost of one soul may be more than they are willing to pay!
Stan Lee called it "the World's Greatest Comic Magazine," and he wasn't kidding. If Lee and Jack Kirby set the comics world on fire in 1961 with the debut of the Fantastic Four, in 1965 they burned it down. Letting loose an unmatched burst of rapid-fire creativity, they gave birth to the Frightful Four, the Inhumans, Galactus and the Silver Surfer — and even pulled off the first super-hero wedding! There are also monster menaces galore, including Dragon Man — and out-of-this-world villains, from the shape-shifting Skrulls to the undersea warlord Attuma. But it's not just the panel-bursting action that makes FANTASTIC FOUR great. It's the drama of a family, united to explore all the wonders of the Marvel Universe side by side!
Certifiably the World’s Greatest Comic Collaboration, the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby FANTASTIC FOUR run stands as one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of comics! Together, Stan and Jack’s FF laid the foundation of the Marvel Universe and birthed more amazing concepts and characters than any series before or since. Here, in the final issues of their run, expect plenty of explosive action and family drama — including the Mole Man, an interstellar gladiatorial arena, Doctor Doom, a mission to save Apollo 11, the Inhumans, the Sub-Mariner, Magneto and more! And to top it all off, we’re including the completed version of Stan and Jack’s “lost” FF issue!
A vain man driven by greed and hubris, Dr. Stephen Strange was a world-renowned surgeon until the night a car accident crippled his hands. Broken and destitute, he journeyed to Tibet to seek a cure from a legendary healer. There he found not a man of medicine, but the venerable Ancient One — and the path to the mystic arts! From Doctor Strange's eerie Greenwich Village home, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created new dimensions and otherworldly terrors unlike anything seen before. These classic first stories remain as influential today as they were to 1960s counterculture. In this premiere volume, experience the debut of iconic characters including Baron Mordo, Eternity, Dormammu and the Mindless Ones — as well as Strange's faithful servant Wong and the mystic mistress Clea!
Stephen Strange is Doctor Strange. But he is no doctor, at least not that kind that would initially come to mind. He is the Master of the Mystic Arts, a sorcerer supreme, a white knight who wields black magic against blacker villains still. Strange is mankind's only hope against the dark other-worldly forces that conspire to destroy the conscious world. Catch the beginning of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's amazing run.
The soaring Sentinel of the Spaceways makes a MARVEL MASTERWORKS splash with his unmatched solo series. Illustrated by the master of man, menace, and motion, the one-and-only John Buscema, and featuring some of Stan Lee's most inspired and socially-charged scripts of the Silver Age, the adventures of Norrin Radd rank among the definitive tales of all Marveldom! Not only will you be awed beyond imagination by the Surfer's origin, you'll also face alien invasions, be torn down to the depths of hell by the utterly evil Mephisto, struggle against the Stranger, and face galaxy-conquering barbarians set on the destruction of...well, everything! Lest we forget what by many is considered the most beautifully rendered story in Marvel history, the Surfer's tête à tête with the mighty Thor! These double-length stories of drama and despair are a must-have for any and every Marvelite, and to prove we mean it, we're including the Surfer's first-ever solo adventure from the pages of FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #5 as bonus!
