Farewell to Stan Lee

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
I grew up reading comics. (Full disclosure: I'm still growing up reading comics.) Stan Lee, alongside some fabulous artists and other fabulous writers, created some of the characters and stories that have thrilled and inspired me all my life, and continue to inform my art and outlook. His memory will be a blessing – and a reminder to all of us that with great power must also come great responsibility. Seriously. His stories told us to embrace those that are different from us, to embrace our own differentness, to embrace the awkward within ourselves, to celebrate our differences and use them to save the world.
