At a recent comic con, this permanent A+ list celebrity/writer/creator was basically signing an X in lieu of his name and also disappointing hundreds of fans by leaving early or not able to make it to his assigned time at all.
The thing is though, his handlers are trying to make as much cash from him as they can before he passes so keep trotting him out to these events.
Stan Lee Told How to Spell His Name During Silicon Valley Comic Con Signing #StandByStan
I was in both lines on Friday so I did get a signature and a photo. Didn’t know the condition of Stan until we were in the curtain area. People in front of us had many items to sign and were rude about the ink color and signature placement, Stan was not happy and it made the lines so unbearably long. Didn’t understand why there was no limit on tickets or items for Stan to sign (per person), they also took walk ups if you had cash money. Stan had to get help spelling his name right before he took a break, perhaps this chapter should close. – Source
