The defining behind the scenes chronicle of one of the most extraordinary beloved and dominant pop cultural entities in Americas history Marvel Comics and the outsized personalities who made Marvel including Martin Goodman Stan Lee and Jack KirbySean Howes history of Marvel makes a compulsively readable riotous and heartbreaking version of my favorite story that of how a bunch of weirdoes changed the worldThat i. Exhaustively researched written in a collouial tone and dedicated to every minute detail about struggles over authorship layoffs personal differences and instances of corporate greed the text simply rambles on chapter after chapter devoid of a personality or soul The history of Marvel from WW2 years to the sixties and then to the present time is told in chronological order but lacking a narrative thread Things happen to the Merry Marvel Men but they have no meaning There is no thesis Stories about the ups and downs of Marvel throughout the years seem like a collection of facts It had a revolving door uality Comic book artists come and go throughout the years perhaps with Stan Lee standing by the door welcoming them and watching them goWhat did I want I wanted to know better the writers and illustrators of Marvel Comics What were the influences of Jack Kirby and other artists What made Stan Lee tick How did their experiences influence the way they wrote and illustrated comics I know that Howe provides examples of some of these aspects but he does so in a disjointed manner One moment he s talking about Lee s attempt at making movies and a friendship with Frenc director Alain Resanis and the next he moves on to the reduction of titles then to Gerry Conway s contributions and then to Martin Goodman sploy to defeat DC by pretending to raise prices His writing style is an all you can read about Marvel option Reading it was uite a drag and tiresome I am terribly disappointed by it

    Genius! If you have any interest at all in the creative or business end of the comic book industry over the past fifty years, then you need to read this book.
