After achieving the quickest sell-out in TwoMorrows’ history, KIRBY & LEE: STUF’ SAID has gone back to press for an Expanded Second Edition, including minor corrections, and 16 new pages of “Stuf’ Said” by the creators of the Marvel Universe! This first-of-its-kind examination, completed just days before Stan Lee’s passing, looks back at Kirby & Lee’s own words, in chronological order, from fanzine, magazine, radio, and television interviews, to paint the most comprehensive and enlightening picture of their relationship ever done—why it succeeded, where it deteriorated, and when it eventually failed. Interspersed chronologically in this updated edition are new and often surprising revelations that’ve come to light since the first edition took fandom by storm! It’s augmented with copious additional comments by Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko, more details and Lee and Kirby’s clash over the origin of Galactus, and a remarkable find that explains why Kirby decided to bitingly parody Stan Lee as “Funky Flashman” in his Mister Miracle comics series. Also here are recollections from Wallace Wood, John Romita Sr., and more Marvel Bullpen stalwarts who worked with them both. Rounding out this book is a study of the duo’s careers after they parted ways as collaborators, including Kirby’s difficulties at Marvel Comics in the 1970s, his last hurrah with Lee on the Silver Surfer Graphic Novel, and his exhausting battle to get back his original art—and creator credit—from Marvel. Stuf’ Said gives both men their say, compares their recollections, and tackles the question, “Who really created the Marvel Comics Universe?”. Compiled, researched, and edited by publisher John Morrow.

Beloved by both Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, Lu Anne Henderson’s story has never been told. Lu Anne was a beautiful 15-year-old girl in Denver in 1945 when she met Neal, a fast-talking hurricane of male sexuality and vast promises. The two married, and soon they were hanging out with a group of would-be writers, including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. But Neal and Jack initially didn’t like each other very much. Lu Anne taught them how to love each other — in effect, making the Beat Generation possible, as well as giving Kerouac material for one of the seminal novels of the 20th century, On the Road. One and Only traces the immense struggles of Lu Anne’s own life, which ranged from the split-up of her family to the ravages of abusive men, lingering illness, and the grief of losing the two most important men in her life. Lu Anne Henderson did not live to see the filming of On the Road by Walter Salles, but One and Only tells how Twilight’s Kristen Stewart, through her work with both Nicosia and Anne Marie Santos (Lu Anne's daughter), came to find the key to playing Lu Anne in the film.
