<--- this guy. :surrend:

I'm still trying to decide which issue to get signed but I'm leaning towards Fantastic Four #74:

Luckily my copy is in much better condition than that image. This has always been one of my favorite Kirby covers, love everything about it. The issue has a great opening page too:

Thats not too bad.. Ive seen places charge a LOT more to get something signed by him. Oddly enough, my ex now works at all of his signings...

I think it's around $100 for Stan Lee autographs at conventions. $50 isn't too shabby.

I paid $25 to meet Stan. I wish I had the Amazing Spidey or Fantastic Four omnibus at the time but I went with Ultimate Spidey Volume 1. Years later, Bendis signed in it as well.

I wish I'd gotten his autograph before he quit signing through the mail. Would love to have my "Stan Lee Meets" hardcover signed by him... :(

Pretty cool to see Stan Lee and Bendis autographs together like that. :)

Something I regret is that back in the 90's I was at several conventions Stan Lee was at, and he didn't charge. Back then I didn't want to stand in long lines though so I never got his signature.

If I could meet the younger me I'd kick myself. I missed out on more than one signature or sketch I really wish I had now because of that.

I managed to insult Pat Broderick's mustache at one of the first cons I attended in the early 80s. :scared:

Or was it Mike Grell?

Hmm.

:smug: I would pay for an autograph if the man signed it with his complete given name: Stanley Lee. Anybody know what his full name is? (One can only hope it's "Stanley Lee Lee.")

:?: Remember actor Judge Reinhold (Fast Times At Ridgemont High)? He was named by his father, who was a lawyer. How about Chevy Chase: named after a suburb in Maryland? Except for celebrities who give their children dumb names (e.g., Apple and Blanket), I suspect parents who give their offspring strange names are oddly cool-- and have similar progeny.

Before the movie studio would allow the title Meet the Fockers, they demanded that somebody find an actual family with that name-- and there is one. Where? In Canada, eh?

:shock: How will actor Rip Torn's obituary start? "R.I.P. Rip"?

Stan Lee's real name is Stanley Martin Leiber. When he started writing comics, Stan used many pen names, since he claimed he was saving his real name for when he wrote "the Great American Novel". But he stuck with comics, and with Stan Lee.

So, I don't know why you'd want something signed Stanley Lee, since that's not his name.

Got it in person, too (it did cost, I think, 40 bucks, though :surrend:).

:cry: All Things Are Illuminated. Thanks, SeveFlack, for the info. Yes, I'm a stoic, pessimistic, dour Dane expectant of the worst in people. I despise bigotry, and am sympathetic to any tactic used to derail it. Lieber could be assumed to be Jewish, German, or both.

Let the good genius write in whatever nome de plume he wishes. It's a shameful world in which George Sand and J.K. Rowling had valid reason to assume they could/would be male to succeed. [Sniff... sniff.]

Tonia?

If so, I'm totally PM'ing her to see if she can't hook me up. :heybaby: I'm such a comic nerd.

It's the first comic I ever got. It's a book from 1981 that's like an introduction to Spider-Man. It has a reprint of Amazing Fantasy 15, and a couple of other issues, as well as some text pieces by Roger Stern. I think I got it when I was 3 in 1984. So I can really say my first comic book was Amazing Fantasy #15. It's from a series also containing books on Captain America, The Hulk, and the Fantastic Four. I finally completed the set at SDCC last year when I got a copy of the Hulk one for $30 (which was a huge expense since I got the Cap and FF ones at a street fair for $1 each)>

Stan signed it for me at the first SDCC I went to in 2003. I waited on line for an hour and half, just to have my camera break so I didn't get a photo with Stan.
