Stan Lee Announced As Special Guest At Atlanta Comic Con On June 1

As special guests go, you could do a lot worse than the man who was the father of Marvel Comics. Yes, we’re talking about Stan Lee, who was recently announced for a special one-day only appearance at Wizard World’s Atlanta Comic Con on Sunday, June 1. Lee will be available for autographs and photo ops (with separate fees for both), though big fans may want to consider the Stan Lee VIP Experience which guarantees you’ll be at the front of the line for the autograph and photo sessions plus get early access to the show floor all three days and other goodies.
