Supanova Sydney and Perth prepare for an "Excelsior" time as our June expos loom large! 'Nuff Said!

Finally, after 28 years of anticipation, Stan Lee is finally heading to Sydney!

Comics Godfather, Stan ‘The Man’ Lee, is as much of an icon as the comic-book characters he invented.

Prototype image of the exclusive Stan Lee Pop Vinyl Figure we will be releasing at the Sydney Expo! (Design subject to final approval)

In collaboration with artists such as Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby, Lee created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, the Avengers, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, the Silver Surfer and countless other characters in the Marvel Comics “universe”. And that’s just the heroes!!!

Stan “The Man” Lee, aged 91, has chosen Sydney’s Supanova Expo (June 13-15) to host his farewell tour to Australia. After heart surgery in 2012 to have a pacemaker installed, Mr. Lee now finds the long journey from his home in Beverly Hills to be pretty hard work. Yet he’s decided to keep a 28 year old commitment to Sydney fans (and therefore Australian fans) and give one more opportunity for a meet-and-greet before he retires from long-haul convention journeys.

We are Supa-privileged to host the man who innovated the phrase, “With great power comes great responsibility!” and has been responsible for so much joy and creativity over the last 70 odd years. With this Sydney only visit, we hope that interstate fans will join Sydneysiders in welcoming arguably the greatest creator name in comic book history.

We are also Supa-excited to announce that there will be a special Supanova Sydney exclusive Stan Lee Pop Vinyl figure (see below) plus an awesome Adam Hughes print to celebrate the occasion which will be included in premium ticket packages on sale now. Further limited quantities may also be available separately. Stay tuned for more details on these collectables and how to make one of these Supa-cute Generalissimo’s, and Adam Hughes’ Stan Lee print, your very own! Excelsior!
