Le Michael Cavna | The Washington Post
After the death of Stan Lee this week, some historians have a " Describing the pieces and the last pieces of the long-haired mastermaster – both are rooted in the Second World War.
At the Transport Library, Megan Halsband, a serial librarian in the Serial Department and Government Publications, has just put a game online at https://blogs.loc.gov/headlinesandheroes/2018/11/ celebrating-comics-champion-stan- Lee /: Two pages of prose that represent Lee's earliest published work.
Lee had started Marvel in advance of Timely Comics in the late 30's as an office ball. But by 1941, Timeline Editor Joe Simon, co-creator of American Captain, wrote a story about then 18 years of age.
Simon and Jack Kirby had been launching an American Captain who launched their previous year and aimed to be at # 39; becoming increasingly widespread and the United States against war. The classic cover of its character is & # 39; shows that Steve Rogers is causing the Fuhrer in his copy.
By May 1941, more than half a year had gone into the war for a half-year away, and the Nazis never spoke clearly in a story, " American Captain and Declaration of Revenge "- Lee's military armor and armor is very much interested in Lee when he wrote his story.
Lee would attend three years in the Army at the time of her. War, writing scriptwriting scripts in New Jersey before he killed him, and later went to the Timely / Atlas publisher.
The rise of Marvel Comics was still nearly two decades away, but Lee's interest was in the warwriting of comic book comics; fight offspring and crime affecting its time; war. So it was only natural, when IDW was published "We Spoke Out: Comic Books and the Holocaust", earlier this year, Lee would be selected to write the preface and the transcript.
Lee, the eldest son of Roman Jewish immigrants, co-creatures decided as the X-Men and Black Panther with a view to promoting unity amongst people.
"I was always feeling that the X-Men, in a simple way, influenced the issue of ethnicity and inequality, and I believe that there is a subject has also appeared in other titles, "Lee told me two years ago," it will not harm his / her subject, which needs to be handled by care and information. "
Also, when "We Spoke Out" was written, Lee writes: "Amongst the superheroes that are astonishing at the superheroes that bring bad people away, my colleagues and I have used more than one of the comic books to life topics. "
"We Spoke Out", by Neal Adams, Rafael Medoff and Craig Yoe, collect Holocaust's comic book tales, including superheroes from the Marvel cousin that Lee helped her; creation and promotion.
"It was not just the face of comics around the world in Stan – he was always very fond of comic books to talk about world issues," Yoe tells The Washington Post. "In the 1970's, at a time when most people thought of comics like rubbish for children, Stan was harming the Commission's Comics Code by Writing and publishing issues about Spider-Man dealing with a drug emergency.
"So, it's the right person to write an introduction for a book that shows how comics came to join any -they. "
Here, in general, Lee's "We Spoke Out", which is believed to be the last article published before he died:
Le Stan Lee
Typically people do not attach content so deeply and hindering the subject as the Holocaust with the superheroes that are on their clothes and those who live in the world of comic books. But the fact is that these colorful characters are not just those who live in that; globe comic book, and comic books can have more reasons than the festival alone.
Amongst the amazing stories that the superheroes have; removing evil dealers, my colleagues and I have repeatedly used the comic book pages in an effort to educate readers about real issues. When I wrote the story about drug abuse for three questions of the Amazing Spider-Man in 1971, and when Neal Adams and Denny O'Neill created stories about drugs, productivity, pollution, and other hot Lanthon topics / Green Arrow from 1970 to 1972, we were now just creating comets. We were also teachers.
I'm very proud of comic creators to teach about the Holocaust as well.
Sometimes we'll forget to have a & # 39; talks about the Holocaust something very new for most Americans. Of course, thirty-five states now want to teach the Holocaust in public schools. But the first one of them, Illinois, took that policy as early as 1990. There were not many opportunities for young people to learn about Nazi monks over the previous years, although comic creators attempt to fill that gap.
As far back as 1955, Al Feldstein and Bernard Krigstein created the funny "Master Race" story about an event between a Holocaust survivor and a Nazi war crime. To this day, that story brings me eyes. As long as I know, b & # 39; This is the first attempt with comic creators to face the Holocaust and, appropriately, this is a # 39; first story in this book.
In the 1960s and 1970s, the pages of comic books such as Captain Captain America and Sgt. Fury, Star Wars War Spangled DC and Sgt. Rock, and James Warren magazine, writers and artists who use the middle of comics to teach young people about one of the darkest things in human history. For more than just a bit, it's a story in a comic book; Their first glimpse of the Holocaust. I'm proud of the role played by comics creators to & # 39; Enter this topic. Because young people's education about the Holocaust is essential to ensure that unrestricted disruption is repeated again. And I can not be more motivated than that.
