Sorry, Comic Book Fans: Stan Lee Won't Be Coming to ComicCon Asia
Get well soon, Stan!
(SPOT.ph) There's a lot to look forward to at the two-day ComicCon Asia event from March 24 to 25. But it looks like renowned Marvel writer Stan Lee won't be able to enjoy it all. In an announcement posted on their Facebook page, ComicCon Asia says that they have decided, along with Lee's management, to postpone his visit because of health concerns. Lee was supposed to attend the Excelsior events on both days of the convention, which includes a question-and-answer session, a photo op, and autograph signing.
ComicCon Asia will be accepting refunds and reimbursements from those who purchased passes for the Excelsior events, which are priced at P15,800 each. Those who wish to get a refund may send their name, mode of payment, and order number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're all wishing Lee a speedy recovery, and it seems there's still a lot of things to look forward to if you're going to the con: They've got a lot of contests that involve cosplay, graphic novels, comic book art, and even video games. They also have meet-and-greets with international cosplayers Linda Le (a.k.a. Vampy Bit Me) and Anna Redei (a.k.a. Enji Night), plus basketball star Ray Allen and the original Black Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Walter Jones.
You can also attend the workshops of Filipino comic-book artist Harvey Tolibao—whose works are in Iron Man and Green Arrow—and Walt Disney Visual Development artist Armand Serrano—who's worked on Big Hero 6, Lilo & Stitch, and Mulan.
