As I'm sure all True Believers know, December 22, 2009 is Stan Lee's 87th birthday. Comics as we know them would have taken a very different path if not for Mr. Stanley Martin Lieber, but then I don't need to tell you that--really, is there anything left to say about Mr. Stantastic that hasn't been said a kazillion times already?? (Okay, okay, so a lot of it was said by Stan himself--hey, he's not called The Man for nothing!)
Anyway, I'm getting a little verklempt, so let's all wish Stan a very Happy Birthday--hope it's a great one, Stan!
And for all you other Keepers of the Flames out there, here's wishing for a great 2010. It's been a blast, guys and dolls--and the best is yet to come!
