EXCELSIOR! TRIBUTE TO STAN LEE (Chinese Theatre) (30 Jan 2019)
Hollywood, California

The panels continued through the night, ending with a group of Stan’s comic book industry contemporaries with head of Marvel television Jeph Loeb, Marvel VP of Creative Development Steve Wacker, artist Bill Sienkiewicz, and industry legends Marv Wolfman and George Perez. Jeph Loeb had the crowd rolling with laughter after telling a story of the time he approached Stan in a bathroom outside the Marvel offices as a kid. Steve Wacker told tales of being Stan’s last editor at Marvel when he wrote a series of Spider-Man comics a few years prior. Finally, Marv Wolfman and George Perez spoke about working with Stan as their boss and peer during the 1960s and 70s.
