Stan Lee (1922 – 2018).

So long to Stan Lee, one of the true legends of the comic book industry, a tireless spokesman for the medium we all love, and cocreator (with artistic giants like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko) of some of the greatest comic books ever published. There was nobody else quite like him, and I doubt the business will ever see anyone like him ever again. It’s going to feel weird to live in a world without Stan telling us “Excelsior!”
