Tokyo Rose
I toyed with a load of different things to add to this picture to express our admiration and respect for this man. This comic would not exist if it weren't for the gift he gave to us, for a lifetime spent immersed in his stories and the stories that he inspired others to write. In the end, all of the words felt miserably trite and fell too far short of the mark.

Thank you, Stan Lee.

Thank you Rose. I'll be over here and curl up with a good comic

Same here. I think many of us wouldn't be creating if it wasn't for his inspiration, as well as the art of Kirby and Ditko.

I didn't know he died until I saw this. Wow. I've been reading The Fantastic Four from the first issue forward for a few days now.

Awesome, you guys! I'm not a graphic artist or maker of comics, but Stan Lee touched many lives. I have nothing to add.

There is a list I have in my head of a number of people that I would like to hug. This list started when I was very young. Every so often the list changes. (Bill cosby is OFF the list, for example. that hurt.) and, every so often my heart is broken because I will never be able to meet that person anymore, let alone hug them.

today is one of the more devastating losses to my list.

Excelsior, Stan. You still fill us with wonder and inspire us to be greater. and always will.

If either Terry Gilliam or John Cleese is on that list, they both have been touring in the states for a while. Unfortunately the only way to hug them is to Pony up a couple hundred bucks. That being said I ponied up a couple hundred bucks and I have a picture of myself with John Cleese putting his fingers in my ear. I'm not sure why he likes to do that but he does it in a lot of pictures. Also that man is freaking tall!

Thank you Stan, for blazing a trail that others have been able to follow. You will be missed.

I can't write stories or draw a straight line to save my life but I do enjoy reading everything that talented people can do and if it weren't for Mr Lee et al in the Marvel universe I'd probably be ignoring webcomics today. I remember when Spiderman and the rest first appeared and I get the same little twinge of wonder and exciement when I see a new strip go up here, or on several other websites I really enjoy. I was young then but I feel that same youth when a good story infolds and I can immerse myself into it wityhout reservation, a rare thing in this day and age. Thank you Stan and thank you Rose and Cent, I never could get the hang of Wednesdays but this good stories like this, no matter what the inspiration, makes it a little easier.

and apparently my spell checker was made by Acme... 'infold' ?

I choose to celebrate a full and long life with gratitude for how it enriched my life and so many others. And since he may be a 'Watcher', I'll still keep an eye out for him in the background at future potentially historic moments.

If I lived two lifetimes, I wouldn't be as cool as Stan Lee!

Very nice tribute to a man who entertained and inspired millions. He will be missed.

I think the best way to sum up our feelings here would be this.

If you seek his monument, just look around you.

Rest in peace Stan Lee.

Hail and farewell, Stan. Thanks for the stories, and I hope Jack is waiting for you with open arms and a cool one.

Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "King" Kirby remade comics in their own image and created some immortal characters. Steve Ditko, John Romita, Gene Colan, Jim Steranko ... all the greats in the Marvel Universe crated by Stan Lee. RIP.

Face front!

I wonder... was Stan Lee ever known for puns? It takes a deep mind to create flawed heros with such breadth of character.
Excelsior - onwards and upwards...
Excelsior - curly wood shavings for packing.
Sharpen a pencil and some colour crayons, red, yellow, blue.
You get curly wood shavings, and a sharp pencil and crayons. And with a sheet of paper you can create..

I wonder, was he having a really subtle play on words? Deep down?

We lost another legend Thursday night, one Roy Clark.

Roy was a personal inspiration to me, and I would like us to raise a glass to him as well.
Oldarmourer 18th Nov 2018, 12:52 PM edit delete reply
Never cared much for country, but him I liked :(
DLKmusic 18th Nov 2018, 3:33 PM edit delete reply

He was a big influence on a LOT of people. The first time I heard "Rock this Town", I didn't know about the Stray Cats yet, and my first thought was "Why is Roy Clark playing a song about being a juvenile delinquent?"

A gentleman, it is said, should have a hat. I rarely wear one, as I don't like them, but yet I keep one, just the same. Here is the reason why:

Stan Lee was a terrible actor, yet I loved seeing him in every movie he was in. Not for his acting or his character or even just his cameos themselves. Stan Lee was, without fail (in my experience), filled with enthusiasm, forever excited to experience the fandom of heroism, regardless of its form or quality. He inspired generations of readers, fans, writers, & artists, yet he was, himself, a quintessential fan. That enthusiasm, that joy, has left this world, and we are the lesser for its loss. I can only hope that the inspiration he provided, both from his creations and from his enduring enthusiasm, remains with us.

Mr. Lee, I put on my hat, a rarity, so that I may, in respect, remove it. My hat's off to you, sir, and may you still be entertaining those around you, wherever you find yourself.

Well said, @Ebonbolt!
