Stan's Soapbox Benefits Hero Initiative!
Hey, heroes! I want to call attention to this short video featuring Stan "the Man" Lee, promoting the release of "STAN'S SOAPBOX: The Collection", a trade paperback compiling all of Smilin' Stan's editorial pieces from the famed Bullpen Bulletins pages in Marvel Comics from the mid-'60s into the early '80s.
Along with Stan's Soapbox columns, the book features short commentaries from luminaries including Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige, Marvel Comics' current Editor-In-Chief Jocular Joe Quesada and many others. Pardon me for plugging this, since not only am I still an unabashed Stan Fan, but a short essay I wrote is also included in this (dare I say?) fantastic book.
And this book benefits a terrific cause--- The HERO INITIATIVE, which is dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. HERO creates a financial safety net for yesterdays' creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work.
So check out the vid--- and if you'd like to order a copy of this cool book, shoot me a reply to this blog!
Nil Nisi Optimus!
Pax et Stan Comics!
