Stan Lee hits DC for award.

He was here over the weekend - see "Arts, Humanities Medals Awarded; Bush Awardees Include Stan Lee, Olivia de Havilland," By Joel Garreau, Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, November 18, 2008; C02.

Most of us missed him, but not one sharp-eyed lad - "Hey, Isn't That...?" Washington Post (November 18): C3.

And here's the official press release.

For those who'd like something tangible of Stan's, the charity Hero Initiative has copies of the new Stan Lee's Soapbox collection signed by both Lee and John Romita.

OT: Stan Lee's Soapbox raising money for cartoonist's charity

Hero Initiative is receiving money from reprints of Stan Lee's Soapbox columns from Marvel Comics in the 1970s. Here's a video message from Stan - and a review of the book - "Comics: Stan's Soapbox: The Collection," By Chris Landers, Baltimore City Paper November 10 2008. I've already ordered mine from Previews. Nostalgia and charity - two great tastes that taste great together!
