Denied allegations regarding the co-creator of the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee made by the Daily Mail, with help from Alan Duke, and other allegations made on Facebook may have seem Stan Lee cancel a couple of events. But his appearance at ACE Comic Con this past weekend was warmly received, and he has three new appearances lined up, and one is quite a surprise.
Stan Lee will attend Wizard World Comic Con St. Louis on February 3rd-4th, and Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland, March 3rd-4th. Stan Lee will be available to meet fans, pose for photo ops, sign autographs and will conduct interactive Q&A sessions in Saturday and Sunday appearances in both cities
“There is no bigger name in the comics world than Stan Lee, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back at two of our upcoming shows,” said John D. Maatta,
Wizard World CEO. “It is truly an experience for fans to meet this legend who has made everything in the industry possible.”
Hope it works well, Wizard World has posted financial statements stating that the company will not make it past November without further investment.
But as well as St Louis and Cleveland, Stan Lee is also supposed to appear at Comic Con Asia in Quezon City, Philippines on March 24th and 25th.
Get your spidey senses tingling as Marvel’s comic legend, Stan Lee, is coming to ComicCon Asia 2018! Who’s excited? We definitely are!
However, comments are a little doubting based on past performance… including “Guest feature: via Skype Video Call?” The show has tried to clarify, saying repeatedly “Stan Lee will be making a personal appearance at the ComicCon Asia 2018 event in Manila. We will be posting more information on how you can meet and greet him in person soon! Don’t forget to spread the awesome news!”
Emphasis on “person”.
Back when Comic Con Asia announced the boxer and senator Manny Pacquiao as their ambassador, with a history of derogatory comments about same-sex relationships, they lost the support of a section of the fanbase already dismayed over previous guest cancellations, and have found it hard to get buzz going again. The Stan Lee post has certainly got things buzzing. Some fear this is the Comic Con that cried wolf…
