Via Sean Howe:

Stan Lee at home in the early 1950s. “Always wrote standing up—good for the figure—and always faced the sun—good for the suntan!”


Damn.

    I wonder what other habits are employed by writers? Some claim they write better when facing a certain direction, or they have to wear certain clothing, certain times of day, etc.

  2. Somehow it makes a lot of sense.

  3. Leandro M. Duarte says:

    Writing while completely naked seems to have worked fine for Warren Ellis so far

    Lee’s stated age and the “early ’50s” date are obviously wrong on that picture. The beard sideburns and sunglasses are a dead giveaway the photo dates to the ’60s. Probably the late ’60s by which time John Romita, Roy Thomas, and others have said Lee only came into the Marvel offices roughly three days a week.

    Stan has said he typed standing up because he feared getting a “fat belly” if he sat while he typed all day.

    And I agree the photo is probably from the late ’60s.

    Looks 50’s era beatnik look to me!

  8. Stan didn’t look like a beatnik in the 1950s. That photo’s got to be from the late 60s.

  9. “Writing while completely naked seems to have worked fine for Warren Ellis so far.”

    Maybe for him, but the other customers at the pub are beginning to complain.

    “Stan didn’t look like a beatnik in the 1950s.”

    No, Stan looked like Jack Lemmon in “The Apartment” in the ’50s.

Speak Your Mind
