This book was just OK

I didn't realize this book would talk about super heroes. I don't like super heroes, so it was disappointing.

If you like comics, you'll like this. Joe and Jack were friends who had a problem to work out in the middle of the story. It helps you with figuring out friendship.

The best book- A total must read

I thought that this book was one of the best Biographies of all times it was so good that my mom even read it!I think San Lee had to get though rough times. Some of the super hero he invented inspired me to write a comic. The book was so awesome that it took me two hours to finish!

My son happily read this book and used it for his book report. He was at awe finding out who, when and how all his favorite Marvel characters came to live. Stan Lee was a bright man who made a future for himself from nothing... this book teaches children that reading and writing with a little imagination can go far in life!

AWESOME

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

Stan lee is amazing, but strangely enough, I didn't know much about him until I read this. I thought he was just a guy who created amazing comics, but he is actually a guy who does a lot more. I recommend this for anyone who likes comic history, or knows and/or likes a few obscure marvel characters. MARVEL COMICS ARE AWESOME!!!!

MARVEL COMICS ARE THE BEST!

I am a huge fan of Marvel comics and doctor strange, but I didn't know much about Stan. I learned a lot of facts I didn't know, And would recommend this to anyone who has the ability to remember a few key facts about obscure marvel characters or likes to read comics. THIS BOOK WAS THE BEST!

I liked this book.

I think it was good. I like how it did not tell just the series of comics, but also the history of comic characters. Captain America was the first Superhero. Then Stanley made Marvels because a comic factory in New York made Batman and Superman. I would recommend this book.

Good book

If you like comics, you will love this book!
Submitted 1/1/2017 by Design Team

Stan Lee started making comics when he was 15 years old. Then he built a company called Marvel Inc. Now if you like comics, Stan Lee is your man. If you're interested in the history about this amazing comic master, you will love this book.
I give this book a 4 star rating because I didn’t really get hooked in by the cover, but once I read it I really enjoyed it!!!!!!!!!

Geoff Edgers

Author of Who is Stan Lee?

“We have jobs and we’re writing for a living and I think that’s something we shouldn’t take for granted. It’s a special position to have.”

Geoff Edgers is an American reporter, writer, and film maker. He also stars in a television travel series where he tries out different strange customs from around the world. As part of this series, Geoff has done some pretty interesting things: he’s wrestled an alligator, jumped out of an airplane, climbed a wall of ice, and chased down a rattlesnake!
 
No wonder he chose to write a book about the inventor of the modern superhero! By the way, did you know that Geoff has written two more books in the Who Was Series? He wrote Who Was Elvis Presley? and Who Were the Beatles?
