Elvis Presley stars in new Stan Lee comic book
Stan’s Elvis story was available for free as part of Free Comic Book Day, held on the first Saturday of every May.
In a statement Stan said, “What a thrill it is for me to be included in a book celebrating the life of Elvis Presley. I remember the time I first saw him on TV, when he burst upon the music scene like a blazing comet. I remember his indescribably rich voice, his incredible sense of rhythm, his magnificent range — from rock, to pop, to ballads and hymns. I remember the indescribably powerful impact he had on the youth of the nation — and the world. How lucky we were to have seen and heard him, because there was only one Elvis Presley, whose songs and whose memory will live forever.”
Elvis was a comic book fanatic as well. In a 1971 speech he once said, “When I was a child ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books and I was the hero of the comic book…so every dream that I’ve dreamed has come true a hundred times.”
A limited edition hardcover titled ‘Graphic Elvis’ has also been produced. Only 2,500 copies have been produced for the world. The price $195.
