Stan wasn’t alone in encouraging generations of readers to walk the Heroes‘ Path but he was the face of it for many. He balanced power with responsibility. Showed us that while strength comes in many subtle forms it doesn’t make the wielder any more perfect than you or I. He knew humor healed. He was one of several gifted creators that made the heroic seem within our grasp if we only reach out our hand.
Goodbye, Stan. Be at peace.
|Stan and Joan a long time ago.|
|Stan putting talent to the war effort,|
|Why does a smile seem so natural for this man?|
|Oh yes. This is real.|
