Freshly arrived from CGC, a few X-Men books I had signed by Chris Claremont at NYCC. First up, X-Men 129 (Jan 1980), first appearances of Kitty Pryde and Emma Frost and part of the Dark Phoenix Saga. Happy to have this one in high grade! NFS
He also created a lot of characters that nobody else dared to explose before. He went agaisnt a lot of warnings and fought through it and now they are some of the grestest characters in comic books.
We were sad to hear about the passing of Stan Lee. @merry_alessi put together a display of his work and drew this (amazing) #whiteboardart in his honor. An excerpt from The New York Times obituary by Jonathan Kandell and Andy Webster: “Indeed, he was for many the embodiment of Marvel, if not comic books in general, overseeing the company’s emergence as an international media behemoth. A writer, editor, publisher, Hollywood executive and tireless promotor (of Marvel and himself), he played a critical role in what comic fans call the medium’s silver age.”
Click the link in our bio for another episode of the podcast. This week all of Doc's plans went out the window as soon as he realized that Stan "The Man" Lee indeed passed away yesterday at the age of 95. Because here at Horrid Lore, and throughout all subcultures and the world; an undying inspiration and beacon of hope has gone out. Including Doc's reading of the first prose Lee published in Captain America #3 . As well as touching upon the legendary collaborative team that was Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, and Stan himself. Enjoy, creeps. I did my best to make this as upbeat as possible.

I swung by @radartoys before heading back to PDX, to check out their fairly new brick and mortar store and their even newer comics section. I did find some fun stuff in their bins of back issues, like this Swamp Thing #108 that I had to pick up because that is indeed an “awesome cover”; turns out it was done by Ian Miller and the detail is *delicious*! Also got some Punisher: War Journals that feature Lynn Michaels a.k.a. Lady Punisher, for... research (cosplay research!). Then a full run of Elric: the Bane of the Black Sword because why not? Thanks for the chat John I’ll see you guys next time I visit Eugene!
