You don't know Stan Lee. You only think you do. Abraham Riesman's new biography, "True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee" is the definitive biography on the man who "created the Marvel Comics Universe." Even if you're a die-hard comic book obsessive, this book will rock your understanding of Stan the Man. His story is also the story of comics as an industry. Anyone who adores this medium, not just Marvel Zombies, should dig into this book and open their mind to this incredibly complicated saga. We're honored and delighted to have Riesman on the podcast this week. We break into the myths, the legends, and, most importantly, the passions that surround Stan Lee. We strongly encourage you to read the book, but it's not a requirement for enjoying this conversation. No doubt, however, you'll want a copy for yourself when you get done with this chat. You can purchase "True Believer" from your favorite local bookstore. Learn more about it by clicking on the Random House website.
