The internet exploded, with social media love and appreciation for Stan Lee, who passed recently. I didn’t make a post on this the day of. Everyone knew, and I choose to celebrate his life instead of working on a post. But there is a couple of things I will quietly say.
ComicsandMemes would not of existed without him. Stan Lee inspired me to take such an interest in comics. His passion and love for comics accompanied by his comforting/charismatic personality accompanied with a fatherly unique voice made him the grandfather of many comic families.
Rest in peace Stan Lee, the world will never be the same without you. Yet he sure did change it why he was here.
