Stan Lee Unable To Appear At Salt Lake Comic Con #FanX17 For Health Reasons

Salt Lake Comic Con has announced that Stan Lee will not be able to attend FanX17 "…due to health reasons. After a second visit to the doctor this morning, he was advised to rest and recuperate rather than risk getting worse."  The ever-busy Lee, who had to cancel last weekend's appearance at Big Apple Comic Con due to the flu, has maintained an Iron Man-like convention appearance schedule in recent years despite turning 94 years old last December.

This is far from the first time I've had this thought in recent years, but — part of me wishes that the legendary Stan the Man would slow down just a bit at this stage of his career, despite being a major draw wherever he goes.  On the other hand, the fact that he appears to be insanely productive — and obviously still loves every minute of it — at age 94 is inspirational.  My hat's off to you Stan, and please get well soon.
