The organization was informed by Mr. Stan Lee’s representatives that he has cancelled his appearance at the 2013 Amazing Arizona Comic Con due to physically being unable to travel since Mr. Lee is ill.
In order to offset this MAJOR impact, the con wrote:
Fortunately, we have a full weekend of great programming, over hundred of comic creators coming to the convention, and nearly 300 exhibitors on the main floor. Further headline guest Jim Lee, the Best Selling comic artist of all time, will be on hand at the event to meet with attendees, sign FREE autographs, and share in the spirit of comics and pop culture. Amazing Arizona Comic Con apologizes for the inconvenience and wishes Mr. Stan Lee a speedy recovery.
In addition, there were many people who wanted to get an item signed by Stan and the convention offers these possible resolutions – It is VERY nice that even though Stan won’t be at the con, you can still get your items signed by him!
Amazing Arizona Comic Con, in cooperation with Desert Wind Comics, has the following options available to those who have previously purchased INDIVIDUAL SIGNING TICKETS for the Stan Lee Autograph sessions taking place this Saturday, January 26, 2013. You may choose from one of the following choices:
1. The purchaser of a Stan Lee signing ticket may submit to Desert Wind Comics one item for each signing ticket to be signed by Stan Lee. Desert Wind Comics will personally take the items to be signed to Stan Lee’s office in Los Angeles, Ca and once signed, will then ship the items to their appropriate owners. (A minimal shipping fee applies)
2. The purchaser of a Stan Lee signing ticket may choose to submit their comic book to Desert Wind Comics to be signed by Stan Lee as per option 1 and then have the book submitted to CGC for Signature Series grading (additional fees apply) and then have the graded comic shipped back to the owner.
3. The purchaser of a Stan Lee signing ticket may get a refund of the paid ticket. The refund is in accordance with the policy stated in the Desert Wind Comics web store advertisement for Stan Lee signing tickets.
See a Desert Wind Comics representative at Booth #620 for details and restrictions.
Please note that if you have not already purchased a signing ticket you may still purchase a Stan Lee signing ticket and then choose either option 1 or 2. (All fees apply)
Stan Lee signing tickets may be purchased at the Desert Wind Comics booth located at booth 620.
All I can say, is GET WELL SOON STAN!
