Stan Lee Honored With Hand And Footprint Ceremony In Hollywood

On July 18, 2017 the iconic creator and force behind Comics, Stan Lee, put his handprints and footprints in cement in the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX. Presented by Legion M, ICON: Celebrating Stan Lee, was the first ever handprint-footprints ceremony in TCL history to be organized and hosted by the fans.

“Stan Lee gave us the heroes that fueled our imagination and aspirations” said Kevin Smith, Filmmaker, Actor, Writer, Comedian and Stan Lee Fan. ”Now, we, the fans, are coming together to give this permanent monument and tribute to the man that gave us so much.”

Stan Lee, the chief creative force behind the rise of Marvel Comics, brought to life some of the world’s most famous heroes and infamous villains, including Spider-Man, The Hulk, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, The Avengers, Loki, and Dr. Doom. His stories featured heroes and villains that were more psychologically complex than had ever been seen previously.

As a producer, writer, editor, publisher, actor, host and executive, and idol to many, Stan ‘the Man’ Lee has exerted his influence over the entire entertainment industry leaving an indelible mark on the comic book industry having created or co-created 90% of Marvel’s most recognized comic characters. These creations have spawned books, films, television series, video games, web series, Broadway shows and more offering a lifeline of box office success to the entertainment industry, toy industry.

With help from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, director Kevin Smith, Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, Agent Phil Coulson himself, Clark Gregg, and comic book artist Todd McFarlane, Lee pressed his hands and shoes into a slab of wet cement.

“I thank you from the bottom from my heart, and I’ve always wondered about that expression. Why is the bottom of your heart more important than the top of your heart?” Lee said, which caused the crowd to chuckle. “I thank you from my whole heart. You’ve made this day certainly, totally unforgettable, and almost unbelievable to me.”

In 2017, Stan will celebrate his 95th birthday, 70th wedding anniversary, and 78th anniversary of the day he first started in this industry filling inkwells at Timely Comics.

Mondo Announces Dark Knight Timed Edition Print By Rory Kurtz

Right now you can head over to Mondo and pick up Rory Kurtz’s stunning poster for Christopher Nolan’s take on the world’s greatest detective, The Dark Knight! Featuring Batman as watchful guardian overlooking the vastness of Gotham City, Rory put it all into this gorgeous illustration!

This poster is a timed edition available right now until Friday, 7/21 at 9PM (CT). Mondo will also have a very limited run of copies available exclusively at their booth, #835, on Friday, 7/21 for attendees at San Diego Comic-Con.

“Without a doubt my favorite hero film of all time, The Dark Knight just hits every Batman note perfectly. I wanted to create something that captured the epic IMAX scope of Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City; all towering glass, metal, and nightfall lighting. It needed to be classic Batman, but current and grounded, to follow Nolan’s vision. If there was one poster I could release that everyone could get their hands on, it would have to be for this absolute modern film classic.” – Rory Kurtz
