DC COMICS SNEAK PEEK for December 27, 2022: Return to EARTH-6 and Just Imagine DCU in TALES FROM EARTH-6: A CELEBRATION OF STAN LEE #1

DC Comics is honoring what would have been Stan Lee’s 100th birthday (December 28) with the Tales from Earth-6: A Celebration of Stan Leea one-shot commemorative anthology featuring new stories based on Lee’s (along with film producer Michael Uslan) renditions of core DC characters from his Just Imagine series of one-shots (2001-2002).

Over 20 years ago, Stan Lee reinvented the entire DC Universe. A criminal-turned-night-warrior for justice, a champion of the Brazilian Amazon, an intergalactic lawman, and many more popped out of Stan’s mind with the help of Michael Uslan.

To celebrate the legendary comic book icon’s 100th birthday, dive into 10 new adventures featuring his version of the DC Universe!
