With the man himself two years ago. Even though he was wearied by a long day at the con, he was an absolute gent and took the time to have a chat and a laugh with us. I consider myself lucky to have met him. Rest in peace. Excelsior! ❤️
So the day has finally come, Stan The Man has passed away. Stan Lee lived a hell of a life. A complicated life, and no stranger to controversy both in his professional and his personal lives. The last few years were pretty terrible to him (elder abuse is a hell of a thing), but even then you can see his spirit was outlasting his body.
I’ve gone on and on about the times I managed to meet him. I got this picture back in 2013, while I got Stan to sign it in 2016, waiting three hours in line but worth every second. If I didn’t see him with my own eyes, I could’ve sworn his handlers were pulling a Weekend At Bernie’s thing with us. I figured the guy had two years left in him, tops, and I was right.
In any case, 95 is a hell of a run, and his mark on pop culture will never be forgotten. Rest easy, and Excelsior. #stanlee#stantheman#marvel#mcu#nostalgia#nycc#nycc2016#nycc2018#newyorkcomiccon
It’s with a heavy heart that I learn, today, about Stan Lee’s death. He was an amazing guy to meet and it was certainly one of my bucket list topics. Not only made great comics, but made great strides for humanity. Rest in Piece Stan Lee. You will be forever missed. #stanlee#nycc#marvelcomics#marvel#ripstanlee
First time me and my Brother Mike met @therealstanlee at @newyorkcomiccon 2007, Second year of the Con but first time Stan was there.
He signed "my" first ever Spider-Man comic as a kid that I got from a stationary store on Mclean Ave in Yonkers NY, MARVEL TALES STARING SPIDERMAN #132 as well as Amazing Spider-Man #50 ( #nycc 2006 Romita Sr had signed it). I couldn't speak, I was shaking..He was the grandfather who read to me under the covers with a flashlight when my parents told me to go to sleep.
When it was my turn all I could say was "Thank you sir, you are the man". He stops signing, looks up at me with a smile and says "AND DON'T YOU FORGET IT !!!" Shaked my hand and said "Thank you son for seeing me and waiting".
Thank YOU Stan, for everything.....Rest in Peace good sir, Say hi to Joanie and Jack for us.
The universe that Stan Lee created helped overcome my own internal struggles. His flawed characters represented elements of our everyday lives and real world conflicts. Each story was never just about superhero action, they taught us to be better. They were exaggerated versions of the truth. We all have our own truths, and Stan created enough characters for them to be told. R.I.P. Stan Lee.
💔 Many years I volunteered for @newyorkcomiccon and found a home within autographing. — In 2016 @therealstanlee made his final appearance at #NYCC and I am so honored to have been a part of that moment. Speaking to him, standing by him, and even holding the line when his wife Joan called is all memories now I am thankful to even have. Years prior I had a ticket to meet him and forfeited it to my uncle whom grew up on the comics Stan created. This man is everyone’s childhood and just shit, there’s no words. May you rest in eternal peace, though I’m sure you’re in an alternate universe ❤️

Made these Iszs for the Maxx cosplay I wore to #NYCC in 2016. They’re hand sewn, with toilet paper tube bodies, painted toothpick teeth, card stock and tinfoil accessories, and the granny isz has real wool for hair.
