I’ve had numerous media requests from television and radio to many podcasts and comic book/movie related sites to react to or respond to Bill Maher’s inciteful statements regarding Stan Lee, comic books, and particularly comic book readers and fans. I chose not to respond immediately and emotionally in a knee-jerk reaction, but rather to let a little time go by and give real consideration to my thoughts and words.
It’s a pity that there are people who wait to lash out until someone passes away or becomes incapacitated and cannot defend themselves from attack. As a result, I have felt an obligation and responsibility ultimately to respond on behalf of my idol, mentor, friend, and creative associate, Stan Lee.
