About the Author
Stan Lee (1922-2018) began his career with wartime Timely Comics, and staying the course throughout the Atlas era, Stan the Man made comic book history with Fantastic Four #1, harbinger of a bold new perspective in story writing that endures to this day. With some of the industry's greatest artists, he introduced hero after hero in Incredible Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men, and more, forming a shared universe for rival publishers to measure themselves against. After an almost literal lifetime of writing and editing, Lee was involved in movies and television via his company POV! Entertainment. He was Marvel's chairman emeritus and best-known public representative.
Steve Ditko (1927-2018) was a comics artist whose innovative designs and consummate storytelling are legendary. Instrumental in launching the Marvel Age, he cocreated Spider-Man and Doctor Strange with Stan Lee.
GIL KANE (1926-2000) was a comic book artist whose career spanned the 1940s to 1990s. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and created the independtly published precursors to the graphic novel, His Name Is... Savage! and Blackmark. He is in both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.
Jack Kirby (1917-1994) was one of comics' most legendary and prolific artists whose notable co-creations include Captain America, Avengers, X-Men, Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, S.H.I.E.L.D., and Thor.
Alex Ross studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, then honed his craft as a storyboard artist before entering the field of comics. In 1993, Marvels--his groundbreaking miniseries with writer Kurt Busiek--created a wider acceptance for painted comics. In 1996 he and writer Mark Waid produced the equally successful Kingdom Come for DC Comics, and followed those up with an extensive series of work including magazine and album covers, as well as a poster for the Academy Awards. Ross has also been the subject of two monographs written and designed by Chip Kidd--Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross and Marvelocity: The Marvel Comics Art of Alex Ross. His latest book is The Alex Ross Marvel Comics Poster Book (Abrams ComicArts, Spring 2021).
