Let’s face it, Stan Lee is a living legend. I even went so far as to purchase my first VIP pass just for the chance to get a picture with him. As I waited in line for my photo-op I counted at least 500 people waiting in line to have their picture taken with the man. Fortunately, I already met him. I was helping out a dealer by getting signatures for his store-run CGC Signature Series signing. Desert Winds has the monopoly on signatures from ‘The Man’. Well, more of a contract with Stan Lee, rather than Wizard World, but due to the legality, any and all CGC authorization had to go through them. Even others that were getting the books taken care of had to go through them, this includes the person I was helping out. It was arranged so that I could take the books up to the front of the line and have them signed by Stan Lee.
The reality of it all is really setting in as I am typing this because not only did I get to meet Stan Lee, but I was the first one to meet The Man and I was escorted to the front of the line. The faces and the mumbling of everyone wondering who the hell I was. Stan Lee proceeded to sign 21 books for me, one of which was mine. I will write more about this experience because I really should be taking the public transport down to Wizard World Philly. I love living close. Not to mention I will be standing in line for Chris Hemsworth with the woman whose convention virginity I took away this weekend. She was actually more excited that I was going to be meeting Stan Lee than I was. There is one day left of this event, please try to make it. I don’t cosplay, but if you are reading this and you are dressing for this I hope to catch your picture there. Today’s job, other than hopefully getting books back from CGC and going to the Stan Lee Q&A is to take lots and lots of pictures.
