Sad day for Pop Culture in General.  He, with the help of other giants, changed the face of comics and helped usher in a new age of magic and myth.

His pure joy and enthusiasm for the medium itself was infectious.

And we won't have to read any more stories about possible elder abuse too Undecided

This is all very surreal to me.  I never met the man, but he touched my life and helped shaped me as a person maybe moreso than anyone outside of my parents.  I don't get too saddened over celebrity deaths too much but this one is a gut punch.

I was lucky enough to meet him in 2012 and get a photo op with him.  He seemed very frail back then, plus with his wife recently passing, I wasn't surprised to hear the sad news.  Nevertheless, it hits all of us comic book fans the most, I think, since he has really impacted our lives since child hood.

It's going to be a strange world going forward knowing Stan the Man isn't out there somewhere.

Just realized what my quote below says.  It's been down there so long I had forgotten!
