Comic legend, Stan “The Man” Lee, and Emmy award winning artist, Dean Haspiel, created Even Gorillas Have Pride! to help the Panels for Primates comic anthology end with a bang! The Primate Rescue Center has been incredibly fortunate to be part of such a great endeavor. Troy Wilson has done an amazing job and helped the PRC reach a whole new audience. We were left speechless and beyond honored when Stan Lee and Dean Haspiel created the last comic for this anthology.
Stan “The Man” Lee has created or co-created 90 percent of Marvel's most recognized characters, which have been successfully licensed and marketed since 1965. His famous co-creations include Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Thor, and Iron Man, among many others. Lee, first became publisher of Marvel Comics in 1972, and is presently the Chairman Emeritus of Marvel Enterprises, Inc. Lee is also the Founder, Chairman, and Chief Creative Officer of POW! Entertainment.
Emmy award winning artist, Dean Haspiel, created the Eisner award nominated BILLY DOGMA and the semi-autobiographical, STREET CODE. Dean has drawn many great superhero and semi-autobiographical comic books for major publishers and illustrates for HBO's “Bored To Death.”
Since the first comic strip in October 2010, 56 generous creators from seven countries have donated 127 pages of all new material.The awareness this campaign created is invaluable. You can view all of the comics at act-i-vate.com.
Many thanks again to Troy Wilson and all of the artists who made this possible.
