Stan Lee is an American comic book writer, editor and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. This collection marks the 95th birthday for Stan Lee this year so a special edition portfolio has been created comprising of six of Marvels best loved characters.

The Characters in this collection have been part of Stan Lee’s gift to the industry dating back to 1941, where Captain America made his first appearance followed in the 60’s and 70’s by his counterparts.

Whether Stan Lee envisaged that this band of much needed superheroes, cutting a swathe through often dystopian times in global history would have quite such longevity is purely academic, such is their achieved permanency in our collective consciousness.

The timing of their respective emergences onto the pages of Marvel comics arguably echoes world events happening as these now classic pages were being fed through the printing presses. From Captain America battling injustice at a time in the 1940s when Hitler’s politics were causing a unnerving fear to settle over Europe, to the world facing an unknown future thanks to the Cuban missile crisis in the 1960′, Stan Lee’s illustrated hero rose to the occasion to remind society that good will always triumph over evil, when power is leveraged to protect and further rather than to control and dominate.

Such is the legacy that Stan Lee has engendered, such is the relevance of his message that these timeless characters continue to impart and such is our honour to play our own small role in honouring him as a powerhouse of pop culture through his commemorative collection.

In collaboration with several artists, most notably Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he co-created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the Silver Surfer, The Avengers and many other fictional characters.

Stan Lee is credited with introducing complex characters; characters that were not just the archetypal all American superhero, but those that had demons, those that could have a bad temper, or become unwell – making them much more human and easier to identify with. This type of characterisation and story-telling had rarely been seen in the industry before.

Stan Lee led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation during an era now referred to as The Marvel Revolution.

Stan Lee’s Marvel Revolution extended beyond the characters and storylines, to the way in which comic books engaged the audience and created a community between the readers and the creators. Additionally, he pioneered and advocated the use of comic books to comment on social issues of the time, including bigotry, injustice and discrimination.

This got him into some hot water with the rather conservative Comics Code Authority but Stan wouldn’t yield, he continued to pursue what he believed in and what he knew his audience wanted; thus the code changed.

In summary, Stan Lee and his collaborations with some of the greatest comic book artists ever to have lived, changed the game.

In 1984, Stan Lee was awarded The National Medal of Arts by the United States Congress, the highest honour awarded to an individual artist in the United States. Previous recipients include Georgia O’Keefe, William de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein and Bob Dylan.

Stan Said “If Shakespeare and Michelangelo were alive today, and they decided to collaborate on a comic, Shakespeare would write the script and Michelangelo would draw it. How could anybody say that this wouldn’t be as worthwhile an art form as anything on Earth? “
