"What Stan Lee and his artists achieved here was to tell a story in just one image. The communicative style of this kind of art tells us about humanity, the struggles, the triumphs, the trials, the tribulations and that, is something everyone can identify with."
Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has personally chose, curated and signed the six pieces or art, which are available for sale.
The individual artworks in the series start at £695.
Speaking about the creation of his famous characters, Stan Lee said: "To start I think about what quality I can give the hero that makes them unique, that hasn't been seen before, but is still logical.
"Spiderman is the perfect example of this. He's a teenager with money problems and girl problems; a hero the average reader can empathise with.
"I spent more time on Spiderman's personal life than the action and used more 'thought balloons' for him than any other character."
