One of the most important iconic people of our time passed away Monday. Stanley Martin Lieber otherwise, known as Stan Lee. He is known by all comic book lovers as the father of Marvel Studios. A life filled with more than enough fame and hero worship by all those fans that followed the legendary writer and artist; December 28, 1922 – November 12, 2018. This man is known throughout the comic world, even more throughout the planet itself as a man of equality, diversity, and love of all. Stan Lee was a comic book writer, publisher, chairman, director, and editor. He leads a small publishing company and helped turn it into a large multimedia company, the same company we all know today as the infamous Marvel Studios. It is sad to see him go but he will never be forgotten with all the work he has achieved over the many years.

This year will be the first year of a new anime convention in New York, the Anime Fest (which is collaborative venture between NYCC and Anime Expo ). In years prior, there was a separate anime convention that was hosted with New York Comic Con but, over the years they fused together and became one convention that enveloped the entire Jacob Javits Center.
This year attendees have the option to purchase tickets to Anime Fest and/or New York Comic Con but the conventions this year will be held in two different locations. I will be attending both conventions, this year and I can not wait to experience what both conventions have to offer.
