While Stan Lee’s handlers were aggressively keeping fans—who had paid an extra $60 for his autograph—from taking photos before they reached the quasi-sacred bubble that marked the comic-book legend’s table, Lee himself seemed happy, gracious and affable. While most of the moments were nice, none was making much of a photo … until fan Veronica Fink plopped a white Chuck Taylor on the table for Lee to sign. As for the second photo, I have only this to say: Boba Feet.
