When I was a young ball of mush, my pal @jessemq
and I met Stan Lee at a comic book signing in Santa Rosa. He signed my first edition #spectacularspiderman
and, in a panic, Jesse asked him to sign his first edition #darkhawk
(which was still Marvel but...Darkhawk). He was incredibly warm, generous, and his laugh was infectious - especially when it came to Jesse asking him to sign Darkhawk.
I met him again a year ago, and after everything that’s happened with the #marvelcinematicuniverse
he was exactly the same. Such a positive influence professionally and personally. I still have dreams where I’m #spiderman
(but something is always a little off like my web shooters don’t work or one of my claws doesn’t come out all the way... That’s common for most people, right?) 🙏 #rip #excelsior #stanlee #marvel #comics #legend
