    Timely Comics Staff Photograph autographed by Stan Lee (1942). Stan Lee recalls, "On August 14, 1942 Martin Goodman, owner and publisher of Timely Comics, together with Lloyd Jacquet, owner of Funnies Incorporated, took their staffs to see Walt Disney's new animated feature "Bambi," because they were producing comics at the time which featured animated cartoon characters, and because those comics were proving to be very profitable. After the movie, Martin and Lloyd took some of their staffs to dinner at New York's Hotel Astor to celebrate the occasion. (Note: Lloyd Jacquet's Funnies Incorporated was a studio whose artists provided stories and artwork to various comic book publishers, including Martin Goodman.) While I can't remember all the names, the ones I can identify are -- Left side (from the bottom moving up), all Timely unless otherwise labeled: Ernie Hart, editor, writer, and artist; Vince Alascia, inker of adventure strips; Mario Acquaviva, letterer; unknown; Moe Worth, animation artist; Dick LaScalzo; Ray Gill, writer and Funnies Inc. executive; Stan Lee; Jim Fitzsimmons, Funnies Inc. business executive; Frank Torpey, Martin Goodman's friend and "man Friday"; Lloyd Jacquet, Funnies Inc. owner; Center: Martin Goodman, Timely publisher and owner; Right side (from the top moving down): George Klein, penciler and inker; Don Rico, editor, writer, and artist; Ed Winiarski, penciler; Mike Sekowsky, penciler; Syd Shores, penciler and inker; Bill King, layout artist; Dennis Neville, penciler; Jim Mooney, penciler and inker; and Gary Keller, letterer and Head of Production." The photograph's image area measures 10" x 12", and it is in Excellent condition. Stan Lee signed the glass on this photograph's frame -- what a rare insight into the Marvel bullpen of the Golden Age.
