    I’m using these pictures of Stan Lee, Patrick Stewart, Alicia Keys, Chuck Klosterman, and Brian Michael Bendis to grab your attention and let you know that their brilliant photographer, Seth Kushner (you can see more great work here) is being honored with a bone marrow drive this weekend.

    I’m lucky to know Seth, who’s also a graphic novelist and a husband and a father. He is going through a lot to kick leukemia’s ass.

    According to David Anthony Kraft, who took over the writing of the title from Stan Lee after the first issue, SHE-HULK came about because Universal, which was producing the INCREDIBLE HULK series for CBS, was about to create a spinoff without Marvel’s participation. “The executives at Universal decided they could do a SHE-HULK and somehow get around Marvel,” Kraft said. “Stan had to rather hurriedly create She-Hulk—it was under duress. It was like, ‘We need to get it out in the next thirty seconds.’If you look at that first issue, that Stan did, there’s really nothing in it. There’s no character to the She-Hulk. Bruce Banner gives a blood transfusion to his cousin. How DC-like is that? She just growls and runs around and that’s basically it. He did make her an attorney…” Things improved from there.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. Vs. The Horrors Of The Modern World
(Panels from STRANGE TALES #151, December 1966. Layouts by Jack Kirby. Illustrations by Jim Steranko. Words by Stan Lee. Lettering by Artie Simek.) Suddenly almost everything in the Marvel Universe was reaching some kind of critical juncture, a point of no return. Nick Fury’s modern-day S.H.I.E.L.D. adventures in Strange Tales merged with Captain America’s missions in Tales of Suspense as the heroes teamed against high-tech organizations like A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) and HYDRA for a kind of sci-fi paramilitary feedback loop. Here, too, science bounded forward at a dizzying, almost alarming rate—even the flurry of good-guy gadgets like Life Model Decoys carried disconcerting post-atomic associations of that which humanity is not ready to harness. A.I.M.—which consisted of shady industrialists outfitted like futuristic beekeepers—created the Super-Adaptoid and brandished a talisman known as the Cosmic Cube (“The ultimate weapon! The ultimate source of power! The only such artifact known to man—which can convert thought waves—into material action!”), which fell into the hands of the Red Skull, who’d just reemerged from the rubble of the Führerbunker after two decades. All you could pray for was to have the Orion Missile, or the Matter Transmitter, on your side.
