Big Stan Lee Vs. Marvel Spin Week

This brief New York Times article on creative ownership issues strikes just about the right tone. Although the legal matter at stake in the suit is contractual rather than an issue of creators' rights, certainly the issue has been engaged, if only in a public relations sense by supporters of Lee. The article is also the first time in a long while I can remember Kirby nephew Robert Katz going on the record.

Mark Evanier, who never sleeps and works much harder than I do while awake, had a note on the Times piece before I did, and he also notes that 60 Minutes II is planning a Lee Vs. Marvel piece for Wednesday.
