Thanks to Stan Lee Presents
being contractually plastered at the start of every Marvel story for years, and thanks to decades of being singularly credited for the creation of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and most major members of the Marvel stable (despite them being co-creations with Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, and other invaluable artists), there are literally thousands of people who don't know that Stan Lee is not, and never has been, a comic book artist. Lee's a writer, and worked in tandem with others to create the Marvel Universe. I've collected comics my entire life, and I've never seen a single doodle from the man.
Color me surprised, then, that Lee has written a book on how to draw -- Stan Lee's How to Draw Comics
. I haven't had a peek within the pages, but I'll assume Lee's secret formula on how to draw includes hiring a bunch of guys to bring some of your half-formed ideas to life, watching those ideas take off, then taking sole credit for your partners' contributions. Maybe not?
says the book is slated for a November release at a suggested retail price of $24.99.
