Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
On the occasion of the release of “Spawn” #200 earlier this year, McFarlane stopped by Golden Apple Comics in Hollywood to celebrate with fans. During the celebration McFarlane brought Stan Lee with him to CBR’s Hollywood studio for a special, once-in-a-lifetime interview.
During the course of this nearly-25 minute interview, McFarlane and Lee discuss what’s needed to create lasting characters, how to stay inspired and Lee’s more than 50 years in the comics industry, including Lee’s recently awarded star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the cultural and intellectual value of the medium of comic books versus prose novels, the role of comics in expanding kids’ vocabulary and knowledge, how Lee’s initial embarrassment at working into comics leading to him taking on a pen name that eventually became world famous, the metamorphosis of comic conventions over the decades, encouraging aspiring creators to push on with their dreams and much more.
