True Believer, by Abraham Riesman

Staff Pick

Who was Stan Lee, really? An influential producer who collaborated with some of the defining comics artists of his era? A grifter who took credit for the work of others to promote his own brand, then abandoned his collaborators to heartbreak and destitution? Or something else? The first great biography to emerge since Lee's death, True Believer is an origin story of the modern entertainment industry, a portrait of a man who never felt comfortable with the industry his tastes came to dominate, and--in its dizzying last third--a true crime story that rivals Bad Blood.
