"Fantastic Four: Ashcan" Comic signed by Stan Lee
Notable Signatures: Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, etc. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stan_Lee)
Face front, true believers! Today, I met one of "The Greats" in comic books, Stan "The Man" Lee! I went to this year's Comikaze Expo (now re-branded to include Stan's name) at the LA Convention Center and after ponying up my $50 signing fee (totally worth it), I secured my place in line as we waited for Mr. Lee to arrive. Since my main goal for the weekend was getting Stan's autograph, I made a bee-line straight to the signing area and was lucky enough to be one of the first ten in line (not counting the fifteen or so "VIP" pass holders off to the side). Here is a picture of Stan getting to the area:
Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone with me on the first day so most of my pictures are fairly blurry. I wasn't able to get a picture of Mr. Lee signing my comic since the guy using my cell wasn't able to get it to work properly. Oh well, at least I got to meet Stan!
