Last weekend, legendary comic book artist and Image founder Todd McFarlane visited legendary comic book writer and personality Stan Lee, who has had a bit of a rough time lately but seems to be doing better. McFarlane posted a tongue-in-cheek photo from his visit, the second in just a few weeks from Image founders.
And McFarlane teased more photos throughout the week, posting the next day about some original Spider-Man art he brought Lee as a gift:
… STAN "the Man" LEE. Part 2 Lots of #spidey and @marvel talk during my visit. But mostly just reminiscing about life with silly stories. I brought #spiderman original artwork for Stan to see. His family (J.C.) and friends (Jon) all doing their best to help each day. Tomorrow I will talk about Stan announcing he won't be doing anymore public signings.

And when the next day rolled around, McFarlane had another post:
** STAN LEE visit PART 3 One reason I wanted to visit @therealstanlee last week was tell him how grateful to him for giving me pleasure of being on stage with him dozens of times. Since he recently announced he was forgoing any more comic conventions…I told him I would also be a little sad we won't get to do 'our thing' on stage anymore. So…we came up with an idea on how to still have fun together. Stay tuned for tomorrow's photo….! TODD #legend #stanlee #master #mcu #venom #disney #friendship #marvel
This time, he notes, “Since he recently announced he was forgoing any more comic conventions…I told him I would also be a little sad we won’t get to do ‘our thing’ on stage anymore.”
“So…” McFarlane continues, “we came up with an idea on how to still have fun together. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s photo….!”
What do Stan and Todd have planned? Launching a podcast? Making a comic? Joint Venom movie cameos? Stan Lee action figures by McFarlane Toys? Stan Lee as the writer of Spawn? They’re starting a garage band? We’ll have to wait for tomorrow, it seems, but feel free to post your speculation below.
