I know that New York Comic Con is some time away yet and we haven’t even started with E3 coverage or even PAX Prime coverage, but here is some news that will excite all that will be attending NYCC this year. So who could be the guest of honor that will excite you and me? Well first let me tell you the guest of honor will also be sticking around to do panel appearances and signings through out the weekend. So with out further ado here is the announcement:
Hold on to your hats, swords, capes and masks, people!
Stan “The Man” Lee is NYCC’s first and only Spotlight Guest of Honor (cue: clapping, jumping up and down and shouting excitement)! This year will mark Lee’s third appearance at New York Comic Con, but his first as a Spotlight Guest of Honor (yea, we created the new designation just for Mr. Lee – he’s that awesome!)
The co-creator of Marvel Comics superheroes: Spider-Man, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, The Avengers, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange, Lee is now Chairman Emeritus of Marvel Enterprises, Inc. and is currently overseeing the growth of his own company, POW! Entertainment. The “super hero of the comic book world” will not only be our Spotlight Guest of Honor at NYCC, but he’ll be participating in a range of activities including panel appearances and signings. YES! SCORE!
See I told you that you would be excited!
