Kibbles ‘n’ Bits 10/22/14: Stan Lee is selling his house

§ Stan Lee’s house is for sale for $3.75 million — economical.Why is he selling? My first guess would be because he’s never there, but perhaps the 91-year-old icon just doesn’t have time to dust the 2,500 sq. ft property. This house is surrounded by “mature landscaping”—so many jokes. [Via Robot 6] § Multiversity’s Brian… […]

Library Con!: All the Comics Programming at ALA-Vegas! Now With Stan Lee!


Every Winter, the American Library Association holds a conference in an arctic clime (Philadelphia, Boston) where awards are announced and some networking and training is held.   In the Summer, it’s usually someplace sweltering (although DC in June is not that bad).  Last year, it was held in Chicago.  This year, Vegas.

Stan Lee talks to Playboy about everything—but is it the truth?


Playboy has a long interview with Stan Lee here (link NSFW but not really as much as you’d think), Normally I’d call this an “autumnal” interview, but under the circumstances, it’s more…the lion in winter. Lee, perhaps realizing this is one of the few spots he has to dig in a little, sometimes avoids the kind of jokes and spin he uses in other interviews. And while his memory is always spotty (and any Lee interview includes may spots where he takes the question and moves the answer to more familiar territory) his grasp on things is still pretty sharp all things considered.

Hang out with Stan Lee this afternoon

Is Stan Lee the only 92-year-old man that people still […]

So how was LA’s Comikaze?


Even as comic-con fever sweeps the nation, a few areas remain problematic, and of them all the most problematic has traditionally been Los Angeles, where a relatively inaccessible downtown convention center and the generally spread out nature of Angeleno life has necessitated many trucks of fuel in order to get a full head of convention […]

Stan Lee has an archive, but you will probably never be able to see it because it’s in Wyoming


In an era when more and more collection of personal comics papers are being given to scholarly institutions (Columbia’s Karen Green and OSU’s Jenny Robb being among the leaders of this particular movement) it came as a bit of a surprise to be reminded where Stan Lee’s papers are housed: Laramie, WY. Sequential Tart’s Katie Frank made the arduous journey to the archive at the University of Wyoming, braving raging rivers, scaling giant redwoods and sustained on morning dew from maple leaves, but she made it.
