25 Years of World Book Day

Posted by Holly Clarkson


What a week for book lovers, the 25th World Book Day today and The Batman is in cinemas from tomorrow (In the UK at least anyway).

World Book Day is such a fantastic day to encourage every age, not just children, to celebrate the imaginative and captivating world of books which opens our imaginations through story telling.

Although comics only came into the world during the early 20th century they have brought to life characters that could only be feasible through our own imaginations up until the last few decades. The movies based around these characters create a lot of money and interest but the original ideas and stories come from the incredibly inventive and creative writers and artists behind comics and books. We like so many other companies, collectors and fans base our lives and work around the amazing literature made by these gifted individuals and appreciate books every day and especially today. 

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were the two who created so many of our favourite Marvel characters including Spider-Man, X-Men, The Avengers as well as their memorable villains. 

We have for sale a lot of signed memorabilia but this one is definitely something special which celebrates the life of the late Stan Lee.
