    Barry, thanks for the insight. After reading that, these claims seem harder to believe.

    But you're right in that based on his appearance in all the films and generally seeming pretty sharp in interviews/appearances, you would not think he was 95.

    And after 95 years of being considered a class act its sad that claims like this are being leveled at him in his last few years.

    But again, based on what Barry says, Stan is probably unaware of the claims, or at least their gravity. So hopefully he's not worrying about his legacy being tarnished and is simply enjoying his golden years.

    (Also, Stan could hire 50 strippers to live at his house, and another dozen to follow him around all day if he wanted. Makes no sense for him to harass his healthcare staff.)

    And CONGRATS to Barry for getting that writing gig. Pretty impressive. Bummer its not meant for the average fan (given the price) though.

    Maybe parlay this into writing the script for the inevitable biopic that comes out after he passes...?

    Quick question, how many books do you plan on selling at $550 a pop! Geezus, do you think you're Trump? Will it be the biggest and best book ever? (Joking of course, I'm sure it will be awesome!).
    Collectors my friend - collectors. While I'm into audio, my younger brother is a collector! He drops $1.5k to $2k on sideshow statues. He has books from our childhood together - graded, sealed and cased never to be opened again . He'd buy that in a heart beat!!!! He might not even read it!!!! He'd seal it and case it...he's got the original "Bring on the Bad Guys" origin stories and Marvels Origins in mint condition....He's got a ton of stuff that he's never opened, just collected.

    Speaking of collectors, I bet that's Barry in all the Marvell movies and he just isn't telling us that the character is based on him in real life.

    Sigh,

    Prerich mentions that he has ""Bring on the Bad Guys" origin stories and Marvels Origins " These were reprint books, published in the mid 1970s, featuring reprints of Marvel's most famous characters. I have those books too.

    But I also have the4 ORIGINALS. Marvel has even come to my house to scan these!

    Barry, I hope that you have adequate insurance for your collection. I know you have had the publishers and others writing books use your collection as research and reference. That tells me that you have an impressive library.

    Very nice Barry. If you were ever going to sell the items, out of curiosity, would you go to an auctioneer? Wonder how they sell these type of collectables.

    JJJ,


    I was an avid collector and what was called the silver age of Comics. This was about 1959 to,about 1975.The industry radically began to change at this time and I lost interest in it. I only came back at about 2005. Much to my surprise the industry had been divided into two worlds now. There has always been the collector and lover of Comics such as myself and there are many of us out here. But There Is a new group that has taken over the conventions and much of the publicity. They are not collectors, they are speculators and view Comics as commodities as if they were on the stock market.


    I am not ignorant to the fact that my comics are worth a lot of money. But I am not into selling or buying. I’m with the group that enjoys the Comics and discusses the artwork and stories and not their prices. So it may surprise you, with all the information I give here, That I don’t know how to auction off my comics or where to go for the current price. Notice how a previous poster only discussed the potential value of his collection and I never do. I discuss their history an stories.Name:  55DE9F30-7321-4A16-B862-BAC3CBBC1F5A.jpg

    Thanks Barry. I guess there will always be two types of folks -- those that buy to enjoy and those that buy to sell.

    Glad you are enjoying your collection.
