Icons reveals the tremendous impact Less has had on the DC Comics universe, including such superstar characters as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, along with his legion of WildStorm heroes. From roughs and storyboards to pencils and finished colour art, Icons show cases every stage of Lee's creative process and spans his entire DC career, with exclusive commentary from the artist himself. It also reveals the breadth of media that feature Lee's art, going beyond comics and covers to model designs, merchandise, movies, and into the digital realm...
