We lost one of modern America’s great cultural icons on November 12. Stan Lee was perhaps the most influential name in comic books but many do not realize he was editor-in-chief during Atlas / Marvel’s late 1940’s – early 1950’s pre-code comic book run. During that time, Stan helmed and wrote many of the horror anthology titles and published 100’s of different issues dwarfing the output of competitor, EC Comics.
The pre-code horror enthusiasts at Ghost Clinic have been posting many of the comic book covers and titles on their Facebook page over the last month and have written up a nice little tribute to the pre-code Stan Lee on their official blog.
