Stan Lee authors a behind the scenes look at Timely Comics (Marvel), provides insight on how comics are made, answering questions such as "Who writes and draws the comics?" and "How is a comic magazine born?". Many creators are profiled - a significant point at the time, as it was very rare for creators to receive recognition in this era.

Secrets Behind The Comics (1947) nn

A limited edition of 700 copies. A facsimile of the original 1947 edition.

The Marvel Limited series was a dealer incentive program that produced high-quality hardbound books with print runs specifically based on the number of dealers who met the monthly quota requirements, and then chose to purchase the book.
