A rousing adventure novel that launches a franchise that's a parting gift from Stan the Man...fast-paced and highly entertaining...with a characteristically enthusiastic intro by Stan and a thoughtful afterword about the creative process by Lieberman and Silbert, this is a wild but inventive introduction to a new intergalactic struggle that promises more adventures to come....immersive, propulsive, and engaging in the ways that sometimes only comic books can be. --Kirkus Reviews Leave it to Stan Lee to save his very best for last. A Trick of Light is as heartfelt and emotional as it is original and exciting. What a movie this one will make. --James Patterson For lovers of Stan Lee this is nothing short of a publishing event! (And, honestly, who the hell doesn't love Stan Lee?) Beguiling, cinematic, operatic, A Trick of Light is a bracing espresso first thing in the morning and the thrum of a familiar love deep at night. --Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan and Lake Success A Trick of Light is uncannily frightening, amazingly modern, incredibly moving and impossible to put down. READ THIS BOOK. --Gail Simone, writer of Wonder Woman, Deadpool, and Red Sonja
