Synopsis: Now in a newly updated and expanded second edition, "Kirby & Lee: Stuf' Said!" includes minor corrections and 16 new pages of "Stuf' Said" by the creators of the Marvel Universe!

This first-of-its-kind examination, completed just days before Stan Lee's recent passing, looks back at Kirby & Lee's own words, in chronological order, from fanzine, magazine, radio, and television interviews, to paint the most comprehensive and enlightening picture of their relationship ever done--why it succeeded, where it deteriorated, and when it eventually failed.

Also presented herein are personal recollections from Steve Ditko, Wallace Wood, John Romita Sr., and more Marvel Bullpen stalwarts who worked with them both. Rounding out "Kirby & Lee: Stuf' Said!" is a study of the duo's careers after they parted ways as collaborators, including Kirby's difficulties at Marvel Comics in the 1970s, his last hurrah with Lee on the Silver Surfer Graphic Novel, and his exhausting battle to get back his original art (and creator credit) from Marvel.

"Kirby & Lee: Stuf' Said" gives both men their say, compares their recollections, and tackles the question, "Who really created the Marvel Comics Universe?".

Critique: Compiled, researched, and edited by publisher John Morrow, "Kirby & Lee: Stuf' Said!" is an extraordinary, informative, and inherently fascinating history that is a 'must' for the legions of Marvel Comics fans. Profusely illustrated throughout, "Kirby & Lee: Stuf' Said!" will prove to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to personal, community, and academic library collections.
