Go, Read: Barry Pearl On Stan Lee Withholding Credit


It's a nice collection of Lee's statements in press coverage of all types, giving some shape to that particular lack of generosity on several occasions. You can read the comments for a quick de-evolution in to Internet argument land including one point of view that asserts Lee was only defending himself against negative press by overstating his own case.

I don't think at this point a whole lot of people believe that this particular tendency of Lee's, corrected to a certain extent at a later point in his career, has much to do with the question of settling who did what on those comics. It's more about Lee's careerist impulses and how that kind of industry job was set up.
