The most famous man in comics, Stan “the Man” Lee has been confirmed to attend the 2013 Big Wow! ComicFest at the San Jose Convention center. The co-creator of Spider-Man and the X-Men, among other big-name superheroes, is scheduled to spend May 19 hobnobbing with fans at the festival.
However, basking in the presence of “the Man” won’t come cheap. An autograph or a photo costs $50 presale and $60 at the convention. A presale combo package including both photo and autograph is going for $100. The official Big Wow! Rumor has it that in the back rooms of the festival a pint of Stan Lee’s blood might be available in exchange for a near mint Amazing Spider-Man #1.
Big Wow! will feature a large exhibitor showcase of all things geek: comics, collectables, rare artwork, table top games, you name it. Also scheduled are cosplay contests, artist demonstrations, and comic creator interviews and panels. In addition to Stan Lee, several other comic industry professionals will attend the two-day event, including Neal Adams (Superman, Batman),Tony Daniel (Batman), Adam Hughes (Fables, Wonder Woman), Writer Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets, Joker) and Toshio Maeda (Urotsukidoji & La Blue Girl).
