    So I know I can't be the only comic fan on here. A few weeks ago I got to meet the man. I snuck a picture of him then we talked for a bit while I got this signed. He was cool and I'm glad I got the chance to meet him.

    That is a sweet deal! I'd love the chance to thank him for all the legendary stuff he's created. Congrats!
     
  3. Same here. I would love to be able to thank him. And Kirby, and Romita, and Swan, and Sprang, and Kane and Finger (especially Finger) ....

    That's pretty cool.
     
  7. Whether or not it was from his secretary, at least he was nice enough to take the time to acknowledge the gift, dictate a letter and say thank you, and I'd be willing to bet that's his actual signature. Very nice.

    I met him when I was 13 or 14. He signed my Conan #1, with his autograph & a not-so-subtle "Excelsior!"
     
  10. That is very cool. Actually, from most of the interviews I heard with him or others talking about him, I believe fan correspondence are actually done by Mr. Lee himself. (At the very least, it would have his own signature.)

    You know what? I'm not all that big a comic book fan, but I was once a kid, so of course I've read them. Mr. Lee is a real cool guy, and his group really did do the best comics of my generation Spider Man was far cooler than anything DC had out, and the Silver Surfer was positively psychedelic, and stayed cool long after I "grew up."

    This guy is a living legend, and he somehow managed to stay real. I would be thrilled to meet him, as I'm sure were you.

    Stan Lee is the Boss. There will come a day when his work gets full recognition and he will be considered a major writer, not only an entertainer for kids and teens.
    I have nothing but admiration for him. As said, the depth of his stories go so much further than any other comic book.

    Have you watched his show about real life super heroes? It's kinda entertaining, although a bit too sensational for me.

    I watched the show a few times. The guy who could have his hands smashed with a hammer and feel no pain was awesome.

    Basically told him that my dyslexia made it hard for me when I was a kid and that my mom used comics to make me better. She would bribe me with comics and that I grew up on his stuff and will always be very grateful. He was very humble and he told me that he was honored that his "goofy" imagination could inspire so many. Then I asked how he was feeling because he looked tired and they asked everyone to not shake his hand because he gets sick. He just said "old". Then I thanked him and he said "no thank you". It was little, but I've wanted to meet him my whole life and wanted to do it while I still had the chance. It was just cool to talk to him. The picture hangs in my bass room in a frame now. Lol

    I was always a captain America guy. My name is Steve and my family are veterans as I am. Captain was also the first marvel hero.

    Stan Lee did a great job back in the '60's developing characters relevant to the time they were in.
    DC's approach to the '60's was to create a second parrallel universe to capitilize on their current line up.
