I must admit that I found this to be quite a difficult read in parts. Having read "Origins", "Son of Origins" and Stan Lee's autobiography. "Excelsior", I was hoping to find even more detail in here. What I found were arguments, walk-outs, disputes, and everything that went against that happy sounding Bullpen of my childhood. All the names I( recognised were described as being at each other's throats most of the time. There was no mention whatsoever of the UK publications from the 70s - even the original Captain Britain, which I thought would have got a chapter. It was very detailed and well-researched - but not what I was expecting.
Exhaustively researched, written in a colloquial tone, and dedicated to every minute detail about struggles over authorship, layoffs, personal differences, and instances of corporate greed, the text simply rambles on, chapter after chapter, devoid of a personality or soul. The history of Marvel from WW2 years to the sixties and then to the present time is told in chronological order, but lacking a narrative thread. Things happen to the Merry Marvel Men, but they have no meaning. There is no thesis. Stories about the ups and downs of Marvel throughout the years seem more like a collection of facts. It had a revolving door quality. Comic book artists come and go throughout the years (perhaps with Stan Lee standing by the door welcoming them and watching them go).
What did I want? I wanted to know better the writers and illustrators of Marvel Comics. What were the influences of Jack Kirby and other artists? What made Stan Lee tick? How did their experiences influence the way they wrote and illustrated comics? I know that Howe provides examples of some of these aspects, but he does so in a disjointed manner. One moment, he's talking about Lee's attempt at making movies and a friendship with Frenc director Alain Resanis, and the next he moves on to the reduction of titles, then to Gerry Conway's contributions, and then to Martin Goodman'sploy to defeat DC by pretending to raise prices. His writing style is an "all you can read about Marvel" option. Reading it was quite a drag and tiresome. I am terribly disappointed by it.
