I can't remember the last time the death of a pop culture icon united folks the way Stan Lee's did. Almost every single person with even the slightest affinity for superhero fiction paid their respects to the face of the Marvel Universe. Some did so through heartfelt words, others with masterful fan art, and still others by sharing their favorite Marvel panels. He was a stranger to the most of us true believers, yet his passing felt like the loss of a dear relative. Even if you've never read a single comic in your entire existence, you certainly knew Stan from his numerous movie cameos and convention appearances. In many ways, he was/is to the medium of comics what Walt Disney is to the medium of animation.
Though Lee's accomplishments have been inflated over the years (often by himself), it is not at all hyperbolic to say that the man helped shape comics as we know them. Artists like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko certainly deserve just as much credit, but Lee's contributions should not be dismissed. Beyond co-creating many of the sensational supers we know and love, Lee gave Marvel its distinctive voice with his exquisitely cornball humor, chummy narration, and wonderfully overwrought dialogue. Sure, he may not have singlehandedly created the likes of Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four, but his cheeky style and affable persona defined Marvel as we know it today. DC's comparatively stuffy approach was often no match for the carnival flair that Stan Lee brought. The man was a master of marketing, a baron of ballyhoo, and the greatest showman the comic world has ever known.
In tune with that playful spirit, Marvel would often insert Lee and other employees into the books. Over the years, Lee has encountered just about every hero and baddie he helped create, and we feel it is only fitting that we honor the man with one such adventure. To us monstrously macabre merrymakers here at Kinky Ho-rror, there's no sorcerous superhero that satisfies our desire for the eerie and bizarre better than that mighty Marvel mage known as Doctor Strange. As you probably know, Strange was the creation of both Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. That Master of the Mystic Arts has faced Lovecraftian abominations, demons from the depths, warlocks, witches, vampires, and other unholy terrors, but he finally met his co-maker in the appropriately titled Stan Lee Meets Doctor Strange!
Laughingly written by Stan Lee, Stan Lee Meets Doctor Strange is a comic story that showcases the greatly goofy gags of Lee. It ain't high art, but it sure is a gas to see The Man interact with the Sorcerer Supreme. Surprisingly, the art is pretty darn spectacular, capturing that psychedelic weirdness we've come to expect from Strange. It's a prime example of that Lee humor and why we love the Stan persona.
The comic can be read below and we recommend it to all of you Stan stans. The Man may be gone, but he will never be forgotten as long as groovy Marvel comics like this are still being produced.
The 2018 Dark Circus did NOT disappoint!! It was going to be hard to live up to what I had told people about last year's, but I'm happy to report another five out of five, upside down crosses for this year's festivities. Check out the video and see for yourself. :)
