Excelsior! Stan Lee Attending the 2013 Big WOW! ComicFest

Posted on 5/7/2013

Big WOW! ComicFest is extremely excited and proud to welcome comic book legend Stan Lee for his first-ever appearance at the Bay Area's premier comic book and pop culture convention!

The legendary architect of the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee will spend the entire day on Sunday, May 19, 2013, meeting with fans, signing autographs, posing for pictures and answering questions in an exclusive panel presentation. Stan "The Man" Lee, whose legendary comic book career has spanned more than 60 years, is the creative mind behind many of the biggest names in the comic book universe — including co-creating Iron Man, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Hulk, Thor and numerous others — and his body of work is far and away the most extensive in the history of comic books.

"It's a dream to have Stan attend our show," said Big WOW! co-organizer Steven Morger. "There is no one who exemplifies the creative spirit that Big WOW! brings to the fans more than Stan Lee. He truly is a legend in the comic book industry."

Advance autograph, photograph or combo packages with Stan Lee can be purchased here.
