Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir, by Stan Lee, Peter David and Colleen Doran

Second frame of third page:

This is Stan Lee's autobiography, in graphic novel form. I spotted it in the English-language bookshop in Luxembourg the other weekend, and grabbed it. It's a book of two halves really; the early part, explaining Lee's New York upbringing and gradual ascent to the top of the comics industry, is very interesting; later on it gets a bit repetitive - "and then I had the idea for the Hulk! and then I had the idea for Iron Man! and then I had the idea for Stripperella!". Having said that, Lee was an iconic figure and it's interesting to read his own story as he wants it to be told (the book was published in 2015 when he was still alive). You can get it here.
