Additional Information: This work is part of the Stan Lee Legacy Collection, a 2018 collaboration between the Marvel Comics creator and artist Rob Prior. One of Lee’s final projects, the series of large-scale paintings depicts him in the covers of some of his most noteworthy issues of "Giant-Size X-Men," "The Avengers" and "Secret Wars," among others. Each painting is signed by both Lee and Prior, authenticated and documented. Please inquire for a PDF describing the complete sixty-six piece Stan Lee Legacy Collection.

About the comic: "Giant-Size X-Men" #1 introduced many key characters in the X-Men world and redefined the way the X-Men will be viewed for decades to come. Prior's painting is an homage to cover artist Dave Cockrum.

In addition to "Stan Lee’s Superheroes and Marvels" and the "Stan Lee Legacy Collection," Prior has produced collections of works on Bruce Lee, football, hip hop and Hollywood stars.
