Stan Lee Unable To Appear At Salt Lake Comic Con #FanX17 For Health Reasons

Posted by March 17, 2017 Comment

Salt Lake Comic Con has announced that Stan Lee will not be able to attend FanX17 “…due to health reasons. After a second visit to the doctor this morning, he was advised to rest and recuperate rather than risk getting worse.”  The ever-busy Lee, who had to cancel last weekend’s appearance at Big Apple Comic Con due to the flu, has maintained an Iron Man-like convention appearance schedule in recent years despite turning 94 years old last December.

This is far from the first time I’ve had this thought in recent years, but — part of me wishes that the legendary Stan the Man would slow down just a bit at this stage of his career, despite being a major draw wherever he goes.  On the other hand, the fact that he appears to be insanely productive — and obviously still loves every minute of it — at age 94 is inspirational.  My hat’s off to you Stan, and please get well soon.
