Haven't been here in forever, but I'd just like to give condolences to the Stan's family... He had a full life. Has been everywhere from Earth to the Moon.... I honestly remember watching his Reality Show, hell, I even put in an application... but it was cancelled... He'll be missed extraordiarily, especially by people who love his works. That he didn't have billions from his works, even if they had to be split across the original Fantastic Four (Lee, Kirby, Brodsky and Steinburg (Cause I'll be posting that cover here soon))
We'll miss you Stan. You're the real life Mr. Fantastic!
There was, though. In the General Supers Discussion.
Of course, I didn't know him personally, but I loved most of his work, comics in general and his contribution to it, and am thankful for all of it. Likewise, my prayers go to his family. He's done more than enough for the world already, the man deserves some rest.
Nothing is impossible, it just hasn't been done yet.
Been a comic book fan since I could read, some time in the mid 70s. Devoured every tale of Spider-man I could, switched to Early X Men and Iron Man, dipped my toes in the Avengers stories too. Stan was a master story teller and even if he didn't write the stories I remember most (aside from the Ditko era Spider-Man) he set it up for others to follow by crafting likeable, believable (as much as someone who can stick to walls or stretch can be called believable) and caused DC to up their game. It wasn't enough any more to churn out stories of Giant Apes or a strange colour of Kryptonite that caused Superman to lose his hair or whatever any more.
So thanks Stan, from a Brit who you made into a True Believer. RIP to the master storyteller ...
