Stan Lee Tribute Day announced for Liverpool next weekend

Liverpool’s retro gaming and video shop VideOdyssey has announced a Stan Lee Tribute Day next Saturday (24th November 2018) in aid of the Stan Lee Foundation.

Paying homage to the Marvel legend who died earlier this week, expect an event that will celebrate the magic of his comic creation genius.

With artwork, workshops, and a screening of his best Marvel Comics Universe cameo appearance (as voted for by fans in time for this event) and with an all mighty Stan Lee Marvel quiz, guests include author Alan Cowsill and writer and publisher Tim Quinn – both former Marvel UK editors.

“Bring your brains, your pads and pencils sharpened ready for action, and let’s make some comics!” Day the organisers.

Proceeds will go to the Stan Lee Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to provide access to literacy, education and the arts throughout the nation.
