Danny Fingeroth’s Definitive Bio of Stan Lee, A Marvelous Life, On Sale November 5

On November 12, 2018, the world mourned the death of Stan Lee, the most famous comic book creator who ever lived. As we approach the one year anniversary of Lee’s passing, Danny Fingeroth offers a fitting tribute to his former boss in A Marvelous Life: The Amazing Story of Stan Lee (St. Martin’s Press; November 5, 2019). 

The definitive biography of the beloved—often controversial—co-creator of many legendary superheroes, A Marvelous Life presents the origin of “Stan the Man,” who spun a storytelling web of comic book heroic adventures into a pop culture phenomenon: the Marvel Universe. 

With so much to uncover from Lee’s life and career, the world has grown more eager to understand his journey, especially now that he’s gone. Through exclusive interviews with Lee himself, as well as his colleagues, family and friends, and in-depth access to Lee’s personal archives at the University of Wyoming, Fingeroth uses never before seen material to illuminate the man behind so much of the media that defines today’s pop-culture.

A Marvelous Life offers a behind-the-scenes look at how Stan Lee became known as the voice and face of comics. As editor, publisher and co-creator of Marvel, he was the glue that held the industry together. With creative partners including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko—with whom he had tempestuous relationships that rivaled any superhero battle—Lee created world-famous characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, and the Hulk.

But Lee’s career was haunted by conflict and controversy. Was he the most innovative creator in the comic book industry? Was he a lucky no-talent whose only skill was taking credit for others’ work? Or was he something else altogether?   In A Marvelous Life, Fingeroth attempts to answer these questions while offering his unique insider’s view of Stan Lee, delving into his invention of Marvel Comics, how he redefined the word “hero,” and reconstructed the world’s idea of how a story should be told.
