DC Comics Celebrates Stan Lee’s Centenary With ‘Tales From Earth-6: A Celebration Of Stan Lee’ One-Shot

by Olly MacNamee

While I am more than sure Marvel will be cooking up something special to celebrate what would have been Stan Lee’s 100th birthday, DC Comics are also laying a claim to “The Man” too with a new one-shot featuring the reimagined DC Comics’ characters Lee ushered in in 2002 – 2002 in his series of Just Imagine one-shots.
