Media Release — Wizard World Convention welcomes the iconic Stan Lee to the inaugural Anaheim Comic Con. Stan resides in California and is excited to meet fans at an event in what he calls “his backyard.” This announcement is his first since Disney acquired a stake in Stan’s POW Entertainment.
“I’ve been pals with Gareb for 20 years and I’m a big fan of WIZARD magazine and the events he’s running. I’m really looking forward to the Wizard Con and to meeting all the fans—plus, there’s something else!” said Stan. I’m also eager to hear everyone’s reaction when I tell them my two breaking news announcements!”
When asked what the announcements were, he just smiled and said, “Hey, everyone loves surprises!”
Of course, fans will have the opportunity to question Stan about those mysterious announcements and a lot more as part of the Anaheim Comic Con programming. And naturally, the pundit of POW! will also take part in the 100% Cotton Q&A session hosted by WIZARD Editor Mike Cotton. Other programming involving Stan’s appearance will be forthcoming.
“Stan has been a friend and mentor to me,” said Gareb Shamus, Wizard Entertainment CEO. “We have talked about having Stan to our shows for years, and I am finally happy to bring this gift to the fans in Anaheim. This will be a truly memorable experience.”
The 100% Cotton session is FREE to all attendees. Capacity is limited and seating will be on a first-come-first serve-basis.
And just to fill your plate even more, an exclusive Stan Lee interview will take place at Anaheim Comic Con and be part of the June WIZARD issue #225 and on GeekChicDaily.com.
