Rob Liefeld Will Not Attend Hollywood’s Tribute to Stan Lee

First announced earlier this month and with more details revealed this morning, Legion M, Agents of Mayhem, and POW! Entertainment are holding a special event paying tribute to Stan Lee at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Called “Excelsior! A Celebration of the Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible & Uncanny Life of Stan Lee,” the event is advertised as featuring guests such as “Mark Hamill, RZA, Clark Gregg, Felicia Day, Bill Duke, cast members from Marvel’s The Runaways, cast members from FX’s Legion, and Fox’s The Gifted, among many other luminaries from the entertainment world.”

One luminary from the entertainment world originally advertised but no longer attending is superstar comic book artist Rob Liefeld, who announced the change on Twitter Thursday.

Liefeld didn’t state why he won’t be attending or participating, and he hasn’t yet responded to our inquiries. Legion M has also not responded at this time. If we learn more, we’ll let you know.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
