Stan Lee Confirms Final Midwest Signing Appearance………Ever
Legendary Comic Book Creator and Famous Pop Culture Icon to Make Cincinnati Comic Expo His Final Midwest Show
CINCINNATI- Weeks after arranging legendary comic creator and artist and Stan Lee to come to the Cincinnati Comic Expo, we have been able to confirm that the 2016 Expo will be Stan’s last Midwest convention appearance. For the fans throughout this entire region of the United States, the Expo will represent one final and possibly, closest opportunity for them to meet, get a photo and/or autograph from Stan Lee at the Duke Energy Convention Center from September 23 to 25th.
At the age of 93, Stan Lee has been attending conventions and shows this year, but has been cutting down on distances and travel. Stan ended traveling to Europe in 2014. He will make his last international appearance in Canada in early September. The Expo later that month will be his last Midwest convention. Following in October, he will visit his final New York Comic Con and in November he will attend his last New England show in Rhode Island. This December, Stan will turn 94 years old. For 2017 and beyond, Stan will focus on conventions and signing events closer to his home and offices in California and on the West Coast.
In his decades of work in the comics industry, Stan served many roles and is responsible for the creation and development of many popular characters. Stan has served as comic book writer, editor, publisher, as well as former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. Working with other artists, he has created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and many more.
After his comics career, Stan Lee became the public face of Marvel Comics. He would travel the world to attend conventions, college lectures, and to develop television programs and feature films. In addition to being listed as an Executive Producer on most Marvel film and television projects since 1990, Stan Lee has been a fixture and has had a cameo in most productions.
Under Stan’s leadership, a shared universe of comic book stories and superheroes was created. Characters could crossover from story to story and interact with others. Above all, he took Marvel Comics from a small publisher to the large multimedia corporation it is known as today.
Stan Lee is one of the most recognizable names and faces in the entertainment industry. His selection of the 2016 Cincinnati Comic Expo for such a historic milestone convention is just not an honor for the fans of the area, but for the city of Cincinnati. To celebrate this appearance, the organization of Stan Lee Collectibles has setup a very special package for those wanting to meet Stan at the 2016 Cincinnati Comic Expo. Tickets for the Expo are available at the website: www.cincinnaticomicexpo.com. Tickets for the Stan Lee Experience, which includes a professional photo with Stan, an autograph by Stan, and various additional limited edition keepsakes are available in the package, and also available for purchase through that same link.
In addition to Stan Lee, many more comic book artists and creators are attending the 2016 Cincinnati Comic Expo. Attendees include: Rob Liefeld (creator of Deadpool), Steve McNiven (Marvel: Civil War), Neal Adams (Batman), Eddy Barrows (Teen Titans), and many more. Various media and celebrity guests will also be in the Queen City for the Expo, including Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars), Lee Meriwether (Batman), Adam Baldwin (Firefly), John Barrowman (Arrow, Doctor Who/Torchwood) and several more.
