For The Ladies: Here’s A Naked Picture Of Stan Lee. You’re Quite Welcome.
This picture of a suave-looking Stan Lee circa 1983 is from Sean Howe's upcoming book Marvel Comics: The Untold Story and it’s glorious.
Here’s an excerpt from the book:

STAN LEE, CENTERFOLD (photograph by Eliot R. Brown)When Stan Lee visited New York in January 1983, the editorial staff was at the peak of its yuk-yuk, hand-buzzer giddiness. They’d been shooting photos of each other in superhero costumes for some of the covers—several staff members appeared on the cover of the last issue of SPIDER-WOMAN—and now they were putting together a comic that consisted wholly of photos of intra-office hijinks. They wanted to include Stan the Man. Lee, the original ringmaster, jumped at the chance to pose for a nude centerfold. Marvel staffers photographed Lee with an oversize comic book covering his private parts; soon after, they received a call from his assistant in L.A. “Stan is wild,” said the assistant. “He should not have been naked for your centerfold. Please. Don’t.” (A Hulk costume was later superimposed over Lee’s body in postproduction.)

Notice how the comic had to be oversize. Get it, Stan!

Letter To Stan Lee Written By A Teenage George R.R. Martin
Even as a teen writing about his favorite comics (or, in this case, Avengers #9) this dude was a pro at his craft and took that shit seriously. Who knew he’d go on to write the hit fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire which would spawn the blockbuster HBO series Game of Thrones? Props.

Trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ‘The Governator’

Arnold may be done with politics, but he’s back in arse-kicking action as The Governator, the upcoming animated TV series teaming Arnold up with the Godfather of comics Stan Lee. It looks pretty crap-tastic, but in a good way.
