Think of it as the Stan Lee version of Collected Letters.
Got this swell letter in my in-box the other day:
In November, 2008, Hero will be publishing "Stan's Soapbox" (or a similar title), collecting all Stan's old "Soapbox" columns and presenting them in a historical context. As part of this book, we'll be including a variety of notables in an "op-ed" kinda style under the working title "My Favorite Soapbox." Pretty much everyone has a favorite memory of a Soapbox they read from when they were a kid or whatever. So I'm extending you an invite to do one of these if ya want.
I said yes, of course.
Now, you need to be old enough to know what a "Stan's Soapbox" is, mind you.
The fellow making the invitation has supplied the full set of Stan's editorials to look at, but I really did not need them. I do have one "Soapbox" column that I recall distinctly, as it turns out, and I know exactly when it was published.
