This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I really enjoyed the story of how and ordinary person can make extraordinary characters!!
This bool makes the Comic Book Characters Spiderman, Incredible Hulk and Iron Man more interesting!

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

I would read more books by this author.

Amazing!! I recommend it to all people who like Marvel, and in general anyone who likes superheros. I don't even like superheros but I LOVED this book. I also recommend it to people who like biographies and people who like books about people who start a business. Overall, this book is AMAZING!!!!

If you like comics, you will love this book!

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?
