We lost the legend Stan Lee 2 weeks ago. The comic book world mourned along with everyone else. The outpouring of love and support for Stan came in droves and still continues. Like many, we had a short experience with him. Back in 2006, Producer Joe and Jimmy interviewed him via phone and delved deep into his early years. An amazing conversation to be sure. And in 2012, Jimmy got to meet Stan in person and do a quick 2 minute walk and talk interview with him. While but a moment, it was an honor and privilege to be in the presence of such a genuinely kind, loving, and funny force of nature! Jimmy gives his thoughts on those interviews and Stan himself. As does Producer Joe. Plus, we thought we’d play those interviews again so you wouldn’t have to dig them up. We hope you enjoy this fond memory that we have of him as much as we did revisiting it. Thank you, Stan. For being such an important part of the comic book world and a pop culture icon. For being Marvel’s (and comic books in general) biggest cheerleader. For always finding a way to make us laugh. And for just being you. As always…EXCELSIOR! We’ll be looking for your next awesome cameo in our dreams!
