Taschen’s $1,500 ‘The Stan Lee Story’ book due out this month is seeming like a bargain

It was just announced that comic book legend and pop culture icon Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95 earlier this morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. There will undoubtedly be innumerable tributes to this great man who had such a positive impact on so many people -- not just through his creativity via the various media conduits of the Marvel Universe, but also as an inspiring and famously kind human being. Although no tribute could possibly measure up to Stan the Man's contribution to this world, renowned publisher Taschen will come very close with their limited edition volume The Stan Lee Story, a mammoth limited edition $1,500 book documenting the life and influence of Stan that has been eight years in the making.

Zack tweeted a rather badass photo of Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa as the web-toed DC superhero, and it looks as though the oft-maligned king of the underwater ATL might finally have crossed over into being cool.
