True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee, by journalist Abraham Riesman, tells anecdotes from his biography of Marvel Comics hero Stan Lee.
Most people only know the trademarked, intellectual property version of Stan Lee made famous by his appearances in Marvel movies, according to Riesman. He said that Lee invented and, in some ways, became the persona of Stan Lee, but that is not the complete storey.
Riesman also speaks about Lee’s feud with comic book artist Jack Kirby. Many Marvel publications from the 1960s, including Fantastic Four, Black Panther, X-Men, and The Avengers, had Lee as editor/co-writer and Kirby as writer/artist.
