Marvel Comics Legend Stan Lee Has Died (1922-2018)

Comic book readers around the world are shocked and deeply saddened at the news that the legendary Marvel Comics co-founder Stan Lee had passed away earlier today. The industry icon was 95 years old and at the time of our memorial composition the COD is not clear. Stan had been in questionable health over the last few months and while 95 is clearly a fantastic bit of time to have spent here on Earth, we are still sad since he is the reason that so many of our childhood imaginations were so vivid and inspiring. Speaking personally I was a big fan for many, many years and have been reading Marvel Comics stories since the early 70’s. I guess its safe to consider me one of the diehards and it was all thanks to Stan Lee who brought these characters to my regular reading times. Before I continue along, these images were all snapped by me at the NY Comic Con with some of them being from back in 2011 and the more recent ones from 2016.

There is so much to say about the late great Stan Lee but I will leave you to read all of that in his Official Wikipedia entry which is linked at the close of this toast. You all should know how he co-founded Marvel Comics and was the creator of such characters like Fantastic Four, Amazing Spider-Man, The X-Men, Incredible Hulk, Mighty Thor, The Avengers, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Black Panther, The Inhumans and so very many more. Most of my childhood allowance went to the purchase of these monthly issues and while I don’t have the super duper rare ones I do have a lot of the rest. Most of you are probably in the same boat if you were longtime collectors. Thanks to Stan Lee my creative worlds were expanded and presented right before my eyes. It was amazing, fantastic and incredible and by the way, that’s the title of an illustrated memoir to Stan’s life which I highly recommend. I’ll link to it down below so you can look into a copy.
