Recovered From the 'Election Daze'?

 But Miss All Of The Action?

Click Here To See This Stan Lee Photo Book on special sale right now!

By Stan Lee & Tom Filsinger!

Then this book that was created by Stan Lee, Tom Filsinger and Lauren Victoria Burke... Would be a Great One to have as a 'Keepsake' from one of the strangest and most fun Presidential Elections ever!

If you are like me, you are missing what seemed to be one of the longest election periods ever in modern history!   Every day and night I would be catching up with the latest breaking news on CNN, FOX, MSNBC  and even CNBC! 

That last channel was added to my viewing list because that business channel had segments on what was happening and could happen, should one of the contenders for President actually become their party's nominee!

Well, I wanted you to know today, that you can still flip through a great photo book to bring back those memories at any time! 

You see,  as a comic book fan, and a 'True Believer' in Stan Lee's works for these many decades, I  have also enjoyed Stan's non-comics photo-based humor projects!

No, this book I'm blogging about isn't a comic book or even a graphic novel!

It is a 'Fumetti' style of writing, with great photos and even greater prose written in word balloons as tho the subjects in the photo were actually saying these witty and or charming phrases ,but you and I know they wouldn't dare do so because it would cost them votes, LOL!

Of course Stan is much better known as the co-creator of such comic book icons as Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man and so forth, but he has also shown he has more diverse creative talents over his long and productive career.

Stan has plenty of experience in producing 'Fumetti' style publications.  Years ago he published a magazine titled 'Monsters to Laugh With', which today each issue if you can find them, would set you back several dollars!

He also released a magazine titled 'You Don’t Say!',  which was devoted entirely to photos of famous people and included Stan’s usual funny dialogue balloons.

Besides magazines, Stan also published a book of photo humor titled 'Golfers Anonymous'.  That book quickly sold out its only two printings. 

A while back, he even wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper feature depicting humorous photos of politicians, which is a forerunner of this book I'm blogging about today!

Oh, besides Stan being one of the creative geniuses involved in the production of this book, I would have to include Tom Filsinger and  Lauren Victoria Burke!

For those of you that don't know Tom Filsinger... he is an entrepreneur who has founded two companies, Filsinger Publishing and Filsinger Games. You also might know him as the creator of 'Countdown to the Big Day' calendars, which feature celebrations of major life events?!  

And for background credits for Lauren Victoria Burke... she is a photographer and journalist based in Washington, D.C.  During her time in Washington she has been employed at ABC News, USAToday.com, The Hill newspaper,
Associated Press, and the U.S. Senate.  So she has a Lot of Experience in obtaining classic photo shots which you can see just by viewing the pics selected for this book!

Oh, and the book itself?

Well, Right now there is a:

SPECIAL OFFER -  WITH A FREE MARVEL COMIC BOOK!  Yes, you read that right!  All you gotta do is to order "Election Daze" and you'll receive a FREE Marvel comic book with your order!
