Legendary comic book writer who changed comics forever. He gave superheroes emotion and flawed personalities.

He was 95.

Read the NPR article here.

First time I ever really felt something for a celebrity death. He was lively to the very end.

Excelsior!

I really like his philosophy on writing, I think he phrased it very well too. The bit he mentioned about discourse on college campuses may be laughably outdated (unfortunately) but his view on stories will remain true forever.

Spider-Man was a big part of my childhood, I enjoyed it immensely, so I'm grateful for his works. Rest in peace.

Even if you've never read his comics, there's no denying he had an enormous influence on the industry.

I was about to post that same panel, Scotty. I don’t have a big connection to any of Stan’s creations, but it’s obvious how many people have been touched by his work, and his writing philosophy was admirable. He’ll certainly be missed.

By the time I or any of us here got into comics, Stan would've been way out of any hands-on position, were he like most other people. Instead, he still engaged with the world of art and his audience. I first knew of him through the extra interview segments that were included on the X-men animated-series VHS tapes, which I think may have originally aired alongside the pilot of the show (which I watched when it first aired IIRC). I could always tell that he was talking from a script in his 'How to Draw: the Marvel Way' videos and the like, but it was all his writing so it was still in his voice no matter how canned. He had a very commanding presence, and a patient tone. I don't think I've ever come across anyone else much like him in personality. Truly, he had affect on me and many, many others. I will miss him, and I know I'm not alone in that.
I muttered 'light as a board, stiff as a feather' for 2 days straight and now I've ascended, ;aughing at olympus and zeus is crying
