And by “Universe” we mean The Stan Lee Universe—Fingeroth’s new book (with Roy Thomas and Lee himself) about the man who created much of the marvel in Marvel Comics. The book is a compendium of Lee-rarities, including many unseen items from Stan’s archives housed at the University of Wyoming.
In addition to talking about how the book was created, Fingeroth will speak a bit about his own career in comics.
A former Marvel writer and editor, Fingeroth has also done creative development for TV; taught numerous comics writing classes; edited Write Now! (a magazine about the craft of comics writing); and written pop culture books such as Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero. He’s currently Sr VP of Education at New York’s Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA).
The meeting is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7, at Artist & Craftsman Supply in Seattle’s University District, 4350 8th Ave NE. Open to the public. Suggested donation of $4 for nonmembers.
