Happy Birthday Stan Lee

Stan Lee, co-creator of the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man and Thor (with Jack Kirby) and Spider-Man and Doctor Strange (with Steve Ditko) is celebrating a birthday today!

Celebrate Stan with this classic...the Marvel Fumetti Book from April, 1984.

Along with Stan on the cover is the Marvel Bullpen of the day, including Chris Claremont, Walter Simonson, John Byrne, Jim Shooter, Denny O'Neill, Paul Smith, Dave Cockrum, Bill Mantlo, Al Milgrom, Mark Gruenwald, Terry Austin...along with Spider-Man and the Hulk, with letters by Tom Orzechowski!

Elliot R. Brown provided photos for some of the stories, as did Vince Colletta, with writers Mike Carlin and Joe Albelo (and an uncredited Peter David as ?), and art (and "special effects" on the photos by Art Adams and Bill Sienkiewicz, and art in places by Terry Austin.

It's a light-hearted look at how comics were made in the mid-1980s.  Check it out if you can!

Excelsior....and thanks to Stan for that as well!
