Stan Lee details his history with and contribution to the comic book industry in this full-color graphic memoir. The comic book legend shares not only his legacy but also the story of how modern comics came to be and his involvement in that process—beginning with his impoverished childhood and pushing through to the current resurgence of the Marvel empire in movies.  Amazing Fantastic Incredible would be a good addition to an  established graphic nonfiction collection, as fans of the Marvel Entertainment movies will enjoy reading about the infamous Stan Lee. Furthermore, you would like this book if you like Dare to Disappoint by Özge Samanci, Filmish by  Edward Ross, or other graphic memoirs.
