Example text

At Jack Binder’s shop, a half dozen artists worked on a single story, with the tasks broken down into layout, main character pencils, secondary character pencils, main character inks, secondary character inks, and so on, with the result that Binder productions developed a common visual look. Lloyd Jacquet, by contrast, gave his artists their own characters and features, and they produced comics that were stylistically distinct. The shops, staffed mainly with beginners and out-of-work illustrators, produced a lot of schlock but also some work of genuine quality, which is remarkable given the conditions that many artists labored under.

Comics were just something to get them through lean times. To Stan Lee, though, the fake name notwithstanding, they were clearly something more. As more than one comics historian has noted, it seems as if Stan Lee pasted his name on all of his work: The signature “Stan Lee” appears in hundreds of stories from the 1940s and 1950s, many of which weren’t even signed by the collaborating artists. Early on, Lee employed additional pseudonyms—“Neel Nats,” “S. T. Anley” and “Stan Martin,” among others—in order to make the company staff appear bigger than it was.

Still dreaming of a larger family, the bereaved couple was unable to negotiate the rigors of the adoption process. They had hoped for a son. The inability to add to their family was one of the few regrets the normally ebullient Lee would acknowledge in later years. But despite this source of sadness, their marriage remained strong. The proud parents doted on little Joan, and Stan’s work was constant, profitable, and diverting. Happier than he’d ever been, Stan Lee projected his fears of not being able to provide for his family onto an entire industry.
