NY Times Stan Lee Howie Noel

I had the extreme honor of coloring this beautifully written tribute to one of my personal heroes – Stan Lee. Stan affected everyone who loved comics and my dad always brought up Stan as a person to look up to. I got to meet Stan at Baltimore Comic-Con a few years back when I was working the show and selling my own comics. I wouldn’t have taken that step into creating comics without Stan’s inspiration. His personality was so big and friendly that you felt like you were his friend as well as his fan.

Thank you for being the man, Stan.

We will miss you but you gave us so much to remember forever.

The New York Times tribute was edited by my friend George Gene Gustines, written by Brian Michael Bendis, drawn by Bill Walko and colored by me.

I hope you enjoy it. Read it here:
