Stan Lee 1922 - 2018

0010fbb2 500
As news of Stan Lee's passing reverberates around the world, Geek Genie pays tribute to "The Man". Although most of us knew this day was coming, it was still hard to take. At 95 years of age, Stanley Martin Lieber, had passed. He had lived his best life. In recent months, the signs were there that Stan may not be of this mortal plane for much longer. After his beloved wife Joan passed away in 2017 also at the age of 95, his health slowly deteriorated. Stan Lee's place in comic book and indeed pop-culture history is already assured. He was instrumental in turning a fledgling Marvel Comics into a powerhouse which shunted to one side the old established order represented by DC Comics. Lee's penchant for hyperbole saw him add the strapline "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" to the Fantastic Four comic...after only two issues! But it was precisely...

DITKO1
Legendary comic book creator and artist passes at the age of 90. Steve Ditko, famed artist and comic book creator, has died at the age of 90. A celebrated artist and a pillar of the groundbreaking Marvel Age of Comics of the early 1960's, Ditko was credited with numerous creations and co-creations, most famously Spider-Man . His unique style is credited with pushing the boundaries of comic book art and was perfectly in tune with the psychedelic 60's.  The comic book industry was quick to pay tribute to Ditko. "Steve Ditko was true to his own ideals. He saw things his own way, and he gave us ways of seeing that were unique. Often copied. Never equalled. I know I'm a different person because he was in the world." Neil Gaiman "Spider-Man. Dr. Strange. The Question. The Creeper. Shade the Changing Man. Hawk & Dove. He worked with @Marvel AND...

The Greatest Comic Book Covers #1 - Action Comics #1

ActionComicsCar
Geek Genie kicks off its new regular series looking at the Greatest Comic Book Covers with the one that started it all...Action Comics #1!.   It's an iconic image for an iconic figure. Superman crashed through the front cover of Action Comics #1 in June 1938 and forever changed the comic book landscape. It ushered in the age of the superhero and laid the foundations of a pop-culture war between DC Comics and eventual rival Marvel Comics .  Joe Schuster's iconic cover captured the sense of wonder, awe and terror as a yet unknown Superman delivers a fantastic display of power. The sheer rawness of the cover, with no words or text other than the cover title, added to its power. Even the title, Action Comics , leaped from the page in a new, bold and exciting style that has now become synonomous with the character.        ...

Top10GN1
By IzzyLFC Comic book charachters are now more popular today than ever before, thanks to Film and TV as well as the comic industry's best creators. However it all started with 20-page magazines starring iconic characters like Superman, Batman, Captain America and Spiderman. I'm looking at the greatest graphic novels ever to be written. Do you agree?!   10. Crisis on Infinite Earths – Marv Wolfman                             Probably DC comics' biggest event ever, Marv Wolfman creates a masterpiece with Crisis.
