Jim Lee art battle with Kim Jung Gi drawing Wonder Woman

At New York Comic Con, the two artists drew pictures for an auction.

A little awkward for both artists, especially for Jim Lee, but both did admirable work .They loosened up towards the end. All the work was for charity.

Look for the video on Sy Fy channel.

They were not the first however, 46 years ago, Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, and Moebius did the same on the Tac au Tac show---look it up.

Stan Lee picks Stockton, CA for the Fantastic Four

Before Stockton got a bad rap it was recognized as the birthplace of the Fantastic Four, the FF.

Joe Field, who as a DJ at the time, thought the Kirby image showed the FF landing right about the vicinity of Stockton, California.

Joe and the fine folks at Al's Comic shop started a campaign.

Marvel and Stan Lee agreed, and the site became official. Stan Lee even made a special trip to Stockton at Al's comic shop.

Al's continues to operate today by the same father and son team, Al & Mike.

Joe went on to many great things, running his comic book store chain, Flying Colors, co-creating Wonder Con, creating Free Comic Book Day, and a professional group, ComicsPro.

This season, make an effort to check out these brick & mortar stores.
