Dave Gibbons sees a different take on the HBO Watchmen series!
He started as a young man working for Simon Kirby at Timely. He went on to co- create plenty of iconic heroes with Jack Kirby. He later became editor and was distantly related to Martin Goodman the publisher.
He went to the same high school as Will Eisner, The DeWitt Clinton High School.
Along with Jack Kirby, Lee co-created important Marvel characters with Steve Ditko, who also died this year. Lee's wife passed away two years ago.

Stan also made Stockton, CA the birth place of the Fantastic Four." Soltero
