Happy 90th Birthday, Stan!

Tomorrow Stan (the Man) Lee will be 90! To help celebrate this distinguished deed of durability, Ol' Groove thought he'd share a few Groovy Age milestones--the covers  to the 90th issues of Tales to Astonish, Tales of Suspense, Fantastic Four, and Amazing Spider-Man--mags that reached their own nineties during the Groovy Age with Stan still at the writing/editing helm! Hoo-hah!

  1. It's hard to believe it's ever 21 years ago since I met him - when he was a mere 69 years old. Happy Birthday to 'The Man'. (Not the one you refer to in your copyright notes under your comments box.)

  2. Stan definitely falls under the "credit where credit is due" category, writing more stories in his career than I'd care to count and well deserving of his accolades. I'm glad he's still around to see Marvel characters come to life on the big screen so spectacularly. It must be a heady feeling for him.
