The Secret History of Marvel Comics
An Evening with Al Jaffee, Stan Goldberg, Blake Bell & Michael Vassallo

October 12
7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.


Join authors Blake Bell and Dr. Michael J. Vassallo for the official book release event of their new book, "The Secret History Of Marvel Comics". The book won't be in stores for a few weeks, but a limited amount of copies will be made available for the event.

Also joining the authors will be special guests, famed artists Al Jaffee and Stan Goldberg to discuss their memories of working for owner Martin Goodman during the halcyon days of Marvel Comics in the 1940s and 50s! All those in attendance will receive a special limited edition, tipped-in plate for the book, signed by the authors, and the cost of admission also gives you access to an exclusive signing session and catered reception afterwards (with cash bar).

In addition to the above, witness the unveiling of the "Martin Goodman Exhibit"! Get a first hand look at all those Martin Goodman publications, from the 1930s to the 1950s, up close and personal! "The Secret History Of Marvel Comics" will be released in November 2013 from Fantagraphics Books, Inc. and this is your first chance to see why this book will blow a hole in your perception of the origins of Marvel Comics, and to see a deluge of some never-before reprinted work from creators like Jack Kirby, Stan Lee, Alex Schomburg, Bill Everett, Matt Baker, Al Jaffee, Dave Berg, Dan DeCarlo, Stan Drake, Mort Walker, Hank Ketcham, Frank R. Paul and so many more!


A reception and book signing will follow.  Artwork on display features artwork from Martin Goodman publications from the 1930s to 1950s.
