With that said I don't think I'll attend a con anytime soon to get it so I figured it's now or never to a degree.
oh I'm not knocking your idea, the print is great and an awesome opportunity to get the sig without having to travel. I would imagine this will go a little better than my experience.

and Paul, don't tempt me.. :P

Yeah, sounds like I would never do this Stan Lee autograph thing. Even if it was free, I doubt I would spent more than half an hour in line to get the autograph from the man. Also, what does the autograph signed by a 90+ look like? The whole process seems to be pretty identical to this:

Then again, can't say I really care about Spider-Man, comics, Stan Lee, or other related stuff.

P.S. "Buying the autograph" online seems to be a safer bet though.

Love that Spider-Man print - just ordered. :D

Met Stan at a comic con in London, and as others have said, it's a conveyer belt. Queue for ages, photo, out the door. No chance to say hello or anything. He looked pretty frail then and that was a few years ago now.

I've got a couple of signed box canvas prints - signature is pretty good on both.

on a side note, anyone interested in buying a Stout GOTG with Groot's face all scribbled out by Stan? :wink:
did he really sign right over his face??

hes notorious for signing over other signatures as well.

met Stan at NYCC in 2016. maybe it was luck of the draw, but he used the pencil I asked and signed exactly where I asked.

Got Stan to sign a record at the Marvel booth in C2E2 a few years back. It was free. Maybe 30 minutes of line.
Worth it to me.
But in now way would I pay what he charges.
But if someone else wants to...go for it.

haha, will try to post some a bit later when I get home. I agree about Groot being the best part, that made it extra shitty

Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is the right place for this - sorry if it's not - but I ordered my first mystery tube from HCG and have been able to identify all the prints except one. I contacted HCG directly but they weren't much help. :hanging: I would really appreciate it if someone here could point me in the right direction.

It measures 24x24 and the japanese translation is gojira (obviously) but there is no sig, numbering, or markings of any kind, front or back. Thanks for any help anyone can give. :notworthy:

I feel like I shouldn't like that Last Action Hero print but I really do.
