Danny Fingeroth and Roy Thomas’s new book, The Stan Lee Universe, honors the achievements of Stan “The Man” Lee while presenting the recollections of his colleagues, several of whom will appear at this panel at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art. Fingeroth, historian Peter Sanderson, and comics legends Denny O’Neil (Batman) and Al Jaffee (MAD fold-ins) will recount tales of the Marvel Bullpen. And special guests? Excelsior!
