YES, YOU READ RIGHT! We’re extremely honored to announce that Stan Lee, the living legend of comics, and creator of titles such as Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Hulk has found a new home to create his next epic universe of superheroes. No one has created perennial superheroes and defined global popular culture like Stan so be sure to hear him talk in person about his groundbreaking plans with Virgin Comics that will change the world of comic books.

LA TIMES Article

Meet Stan tomorrow — Saturday, 4/19/08: 11:00AM – 12:00PM in Room 1E10-1E11

Also, the other one you’ve been waiting for. Garth Ennis (The Boys, Preacher, John Woo’s Seven Brothers) will be making his first U.S. public appearance in many years to discuss the brilliance of Dan Dare’s enduring legacy and why he needed to write this quintessential British story for readers in the U.S. In Garth’s own words, “He’s our Captain America, our Superman, our Batman, he’s all of them rolled into one. He’s the original and the best.” Joining Garth is Peter Hampson, whose father, Frank, created Dan Dare in 1950 and Larry Lieberman, Chief Marketing Officer of Virgin Comics.

Saturday 4/19 1:30pm – 2:30pm Room 1E12-13-14: DAN DARE: BRITIAN’S GREATEST HERO – What Americans Need to Know!


  1. Is Stan Lee joining a good thing? I always thought about Virgin Comics as bringing Indian culture and art to the world, and not the other way around.

  2. I agree that bringing in Stan Lee is an odd move for Virgin. I fell in love with this line of comics because of their individuality. At this point, I buy Virgin titles almost exclusively, and it’s because I can’t find stories like yours anywhere else. Stan Lee and his type of characters I can find just about everywhere else. Obviously, if the work is good, the work is good. But this is the first move by Virgin that doesn’t feel authentic to me.

  3. I’ve had doubts about other Virgin titles and have thus far been proven wrong on pretty much every count. Personally, I like the idea. Stan Lee has been involved in creating more of my all-time favourite characters in comics than anyone except maybe Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, so I think this could be very interesting. The combo of Stan’s imagineering and the approach Virgin has taken thus far promises to make for some very interesting books.

  4. Realy, I wonder ,Stan will make a different comic and break the rule of superhero!

  5. send to me because help me make a comic book/hero
