“Stan Lee did for comics what Moses did for Jews.”
— Clifford Meth

This collection is an industry-wide tribute to Dave Cockrum. Contains writing and artwork from just about everyone's favorite comic creators.
"Trying to describe Gene Colan's incredible artwork is like trying to describe a rainbow. The best way to appreciate it is to look at it."
- Stan Lee
