As we've been showing for the past couple of days, Stan Lee didn't just write and edit comics...
...he appeared as a character in them as well!
Writer/editor Stan Lee (in the pink...er...salmon shirt), and artist Stan Goldberg (doing a great Dan DeCarlo imitation) produced this tale for Marvel's Chili #3 (1969).
Note: In the Silver Age, Stan and the assorted artists he was working with would appear in 3-5 page stories in the 64-page Annuals, showing to fans how they conceived the stories in those books and their monthly counterparts.
Since there are a half-dozen of them, and they've already been reprinted (plus, I couldn't decide which of them I'd include), we suggest you track down the reprints of...
Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (1964) "How Stan Lee and Steve Ditko Create Spider-Man!" Lee & Steve Ditko
Daredevil Annual #1 (1967) "At the Stroke of Midnight!" Lee & Gene Colan
Fantastic Four Annual #5 (1967) "This is a Plot?" Lee & Jack Kirby
Avengers Annual #2 (1967) "Avenjerks Assemble!" Lee & Roy Thomas, John Buscema and Don Heck
Amazing Spider-Man Annual #5 (1968) "Here We Go-a-Plotting!" Lee & John Romita Sr, Larry Lieber, and Roy Thomas
...in various trade paperbacks and hardcovers.
Once Lee stepped down as a writer/editor and became publisher, he became more an icon than mere mortal...
Remember the quote on the cover?
Here's the explanation for it...
There are many more (almost a hundred) that I've seen over the years, not to mention his film and TV appearances.
Let me know which ones you find...
