Michael D Hamersky On Comics Mentions That It Was The...  
Secrets Behind the Comics!
As Told by Stan Lee!
 TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3878 -    I received an email from a potential buyer about whether or not I still had a copy of the book titled: 'Secrets Behind the Comics', by Stan Lee.
The potential buyer had seen an earlier blog I had posted several years ago on that topic.
The blog was from the old eBay blogs format, so it doesn't appear as well in this Tripod blogs format.  So I'm going to repost what it said:
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 by then for about six years!

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.
Good luck to you if you are searching this book out.  There is currently one of each on eBay.
