Pay homage to Stan Lee and Spider-Man, with this gallery-framed, Hand-Signed, Spidey Super Stories # 1 Comic Book, signed by Marvel Co-Founder Stan Lee, the Executive producer of all Marvel Movies.
From 1974 to 1982 Marvel teamed up with the Children's Television Workshop to create Spidey Super Stories comic books easy-to-read stories for beginning readers aimed at children ages 6–10. A total of 57 issues were produced, the first 15 of which were written by Jean Thomas (previously writer of Night Nurse). Jim Salicrup succeeded her as the series writer, and most issues were drawn by Win Mortimer. Spider-Man signature artist John Romita, Sr. was the Marvel editor of the book and drew some of the covers. Every issue of Spidey Super Stories featured at least one story where Spidey would team up with an established Marvel Comics superhero and/or fight an established Marvel villain. This served to introduce other Marvel characters to new readers who were unfamiliar with the company's characters prior to seeing Spider-Man on The Electric Company. Most of these stories would feature quick origins, usually taking up a single page or less, of both the featured hero and villain. Guest heroes included Iron Man, Captain America, Iceman, Doctor Strange, Spider-Woman, Nova, The Cat and Ms. Marvel. Guest villains included the Green Goblin, the Blizzard, Jack O'Lantern, and even Thanos. Other stories in the issue would feature regular characters from The Electric Company, such as Easy Reader and detective Fargo North, Decoder, with Spidey as a supporting character; conversely, The Electric Company characters would sometimes appear as supporting characters in the Spidey-centric stories. Supporting characters from other Spider-Man comics made regular appearances as well, such as Peter Parker's girlfriend, Mary Jane Watson, and the staff of Parker's workplace, the Daily Bugle, most notably publisher and editor J. Jonah Jameson.
The legendary Stan Lee, who received the National Medal of Arts in 2008, played an instrumental role in shaping the landscape of the pop culture world we all live in today. He will forever be remembered as one of the most important and influential artists in human history. He will be missed but never forgotten.
