The major comic book website, Comicbook.com, has reportedly received the word that Stan Lee has canceled several upcoming scheduled appearances at various events, including the Ohio Comic Con as well as the sold out Authors! Authors! series at Toledo-Lucas County that was to be held on September 27th. The following message, which carried a rather concerning tone, was sent out by the Wizard World promoters saying that “were informed by Stan Lee’s management that Stan would be unable to attend any upcoming appearances for the near future.”
The Authors! Authors! series is co-sponsored by the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, who revealed that all they know about the cancellation is that it is due to “a very serious circumstance.”
Stan Lee, who is often referred to as the father of the modern comic book industry, turns 90 this December and is responsible for helping to create some of the most beloved comic book characters in the industry, including Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and the Incredible Hulk.
