Hey Joe Quesada, Stan Lee, Never End An eBay Auction On A Monday


The Hero Initiative charity that fundraises to help veteran comic book creators in need has a couple of items closing on eBay today that could, conceivably be underpriced. Closing eBay auctions on a Monday is never a good idea.Let's see if we can help.

On April 14th in Beverley Hills, Marvel Comics CCO Joe Quesada and Stan Lee are holding a special Cup O' Joe event at the Paley Center from 11am.

Tickets will benefit the Hero Initiative (and there are still tickets available) but there are two up for grabs that might have greater value.

Not only will you get front-and-centre seats for the event, and a Mike Mayhew print created for the event signed by Mike, Stan and Joe, nut you have the choice of meeting Stan Lee before the show, getting a personal picture, getting an item signed and travelling to the Paley Center sitting alongside Stan.

While you can also bid to get lunch with Joe Quesada after the event at a local restaurant, paid for by Hero Initiative, and get an item signed.

The Stan Lee bidding is up to $355 with 8 bids. The Joe Quesada bidding is at $150 with only 2 bids.

Odds are the lunch could cost more than that, you know Beverley Hills prices. And actual standard tickets are $125. 

But whether it's a chance to meet a (still) living legend of the industry, or a chance to get comics industry wisdom from one of its most powerful figures, I'm going to guess that those items with 11 hours to go could go for a lot more.

You know, if they hadn't ended the auction on a Monday…
