Stan Lee in the house

I’m back home in the SGV thank God! I went out of town house sitting for a friend for a week and yesterday I got really home sick and was dying to get back. Even though I was only gone a week, it seemed like a long visit. We had a horrible heat spell over the weekend so I spent a lot of time either at a movie theater, outdoors or indoors in the AC.

In the interim, I went to Frank and Son’s in industry where the legendary Stan Lee made a rare Southern California appearance. The organizers of the signing didn’t do a very good job and there was hardly any ventilation at the hottest time of the day. I remember parking the car and having to walk a block or two in the heat and heading straight for the place where they were selling refreshing drinks. As for the signing itself, Stan was an hour late and because of the unbearable heat signed from 12-1 even though he was scheduled to be there much longer.  There were still hundreds waiting in line who had to get a refund for the $30 fee they were charged at the event. Still, most people seemed understanding when told the legendary writer and former President of Marvel comics had just come from a photo shoot and he is 85 years old, so  no one complained too much about his early exit.

Next I will post for you a few reviews from the books I have been reading this week and some other suprises like the latest issue of Marvel 1985 and the new Buffy which I truly enjoyed. Try to stay cool!

    Yeah we wouldn’t have wanted headlines about how he croaked in the San Gabriel Valley during a heatwave.

    Really? There was this comic book store I use to go to that Stan Lee visited all the time. He just wouldn’t leave. He was really outstaying his welcome. And I tried to buy a Batman action figure but he broke it by jamming The Thing figure in it. Oh wait, did that happen to me or was it a Simpsons episode?
