What Were 'The Secrets Behind The Comics?


It was the "Secrets Behind The Comics"!

And You Could Have Had Them For Only $1.00 !

Which Was The Cover Price Of Stan Lee's booklet when it was first printed in 1947!

Back then, Stan came up with the idea of selling the behind the scenes story of what it took to create, print, and publish a comic book.

And he should have known, as he had been involved in comics for about six years by then!

The booklet was published by Famous Enterprises, Inc., in a paperback edition, and today can be found for sale at times around $150.00... there was a 'signed' copy for sale at $300.00 earlier this year on eBay!

Additionally there was a reprint edition of this booklet:

'Secrets Behind the Comics' (Limited Edition)
by Stan Lee, with Ken Dale (illustrator). Published by Marvel Limited in 1994. Currently OOP.. Out of Print. First print was a LIMITED edition (700 copies) of the 1947 edition. This reprint had a silver embossed cover. With 100 pages. It was a Hard Cover Black and White 6" x 9" (15cm x 23cm) with a Dust Jacket

And what's the man who knew the 'Secrets Behind The Comics' doing now you ask... Well Stan Lee himself was among the select few that were at the White House on Monday, November 17th, when he and a few others were awarded the National Medal of Arts. (Click here for full story...)

The award  is billed as the highest bestowed by the U.S. government.  So the Man who knew the 'Secrets Behind The Comics' way back in 1947 has been nationally recognized as contributing to American Arts 60+ years later! Congrats Stan!
