    95 years and he certainly made the best of them.
    Been a big fan since I was a kid. When comic books went from a dime to 12 cents. That extra two cents really cut into my budget.

    I never knew much about him. I only started to know him by watching him play film parts. Parts in each of the films made from his comic book characters. Then it turned into an Easter Egg hunt, finding him in all the films.

    Someone on my Facebook friends list mentioned they would like to see him digitized in all the future films. Some might would disagree. I think it would be great to continue giving him credit in a digital fashion.

    It was all him and Jack Kirby when I was a kid, Marvel Comics pretty much ruled only a few people read DC comics.
    I had a giant cardboard box about half the size of a fridge that was full of comics, and then I went into the Army and when I came home 3 years later, my mom had pitched them all out.

    As a child, I was always sticking my nose into both Marvel and DC comics. RIP Stan and thanks for all the great adventures. :):):):):)

    Sorry, never heard of him. I know Marvel comics had been around, under a different name, for some years, but, by the time the superheros appeared, I was already a busy working adult.
    Beano and Dandy fan, I'm afraid.

    In a way I'm too young as comics started dying out during my generation. Less people were spending their time reading them. TV Cartoons were replacing the concept of reading books. Then we started migrating to PC and now phones.

    The kid's barber shop had all the comics, never had to buy any.
