STAN LEE is the most famous comic book creator in the known universe; a title well earned for his many contributions to pop culture. Along with his top artists including Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and Don Heck, Stan “The Man” co-created many modern myths as Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics such as: Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, Hulk, the X-Men, Black Panther, Thor, Iron Man, the Avengers, Ant-Man, S.H.I.E.L.D., and the Silver Surfer!
FRANK MILLER (Appearing Sunday Only; Sponsored by Dave and Adam’s Card World and Metropolis Gallery NYC) set the comics world ablaze in the 80s as a revolutionary artist and writer with his groundbreaking runs on Daredevil, Elektra: Assassin, Ronin, and Batman: The Dark Night Returns. His creator-owned titles Sin City and 300 have produced multiple printings, acclaim, and several motion picture adaptations, some of which he co-directed.
