A full-issue tribute to Stan Lee and his contributions to comics! There's a very fun 1975 radio interview that's a hoot. Here is Stan Lee and Moebius. Roy Thomas writes on his more than 50-year relationship with Stan—and shares 21st-century e-mails from Stan (with his permission, of course)! Art by Kirby, Ditko, Maneely, Everett, Severin, Romita—plus tributes from pros and fans alike—and special sections on Stan by Michael T. Gilbert, Bill Schelly, and even the FCA! Vintage Galactus cover by Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta!

Also an in-depth look at Marvel under Transworld, when the company was sold to the first of several corporations and how that went, including a close look at Marvel expanding into international publishing (with Stan, as always, part of the details). Michael Gilbert looks at "The Other Stan Lee--Charles Biro." Amazingly enough, just as Stan related to readers and include them as part of the Marvel family, with the Bullpen Page and more, Biro was doing some of the same thing in the letters pages of his comics in the 1940s...in the original Daredevil Comics, Boy Comics, and Crime Does Not Pay! It's a fascinating parallel.

And memorials to artist Ken Bald, Ed Silverman, and early fan par excellance, Ellen Vartanoff.

Finally, by invitation, a number of fans and pros offer heartfelt tributes to Stan: Michael Uslan, Paul Power, Will Meugniot, early fan publisher Mike Tiefenbacher, Will Murray, Roger Hill, Bill Black, P.C. Hamerlinck (FCA editor) and yours truely, Bud.
