About the Author

Tom Scioli is an Eisner-nominated writer and artist who specializes in comics and graphic novels. He's the author of the non-fiction graphic biography, Jack Kirby: The Epic Life of the King of Comics, the forthcoming I Am Stan: A Graphic Biography of the Legendary Stan Lee, as well as several science-fiction and superhero originals like American Barbarian, The Myth of 8-Opus, and Godland. He has also reinvented established series with Fantastic Four: Grand Design, Super Powers, Transformers vs G.I. Joe, and a cyberpunk reimagining of Go-Bots. He is known for his singular drawing style, kinetic page layouts, and imaginative writing and is one of a small number of auteur cartoonists who writes, draws, colors, and hand-letters his comics. He's also the host of the pop culture centered Total Recall Show and a frequent contributor to the Cartoonist Kayfabe podcast.


"Who better than Scioli--an artist who has spent his career in vocal emulation of Kirby--to expound on the life of the writer with whom his hero worked so closely, to such popular and lasting results? Through impeccable timing, Scioli can express in just one or two panels what other artists do in ten. It results in stories that feel like an accrual of defining moments."--The Comics Journal

"Each of [Scioli's] pages works like a self-contained strip that reveals yet another dimension of his controversial subject . . . a graphic masterpiece."--Air Mail

"An impressionistic and anecdotal telling, both personal and professional, that vividly builds a portrait of one of the most important figures in pop culture history . . . one of the best graphic novels of the year."--Broys Kit, The Hollywood Reporter

"Scioli has created the most compelling and layered portrait of Lee to date. A brilliant achievement."--Library Journal (starred review)

"[A] fast-paced, comprehensive history of a comics industry great . . . It's an apt memorial to a great creative mind."--Publishers Weekly
