I'm not a comics fan (dodging tomatoes) but I do respect Mr Lee and his place in cultural/film history.

I also don't know all the gory details on what's going on, but for an article that seems to have been meant to reassure people, it left me *very* sad.

Edited to add the link to the Hollywood Report article that set it all off, and to say "Yikes!" :(

The Hollywood Reporter piece felt like a better piece of journalism than the NYT one, but even so my eyes started to glaze over, trying to keep track of all the people who want a Piece of the Man.

It sounds like he's better off than Russ Meyer in his last days, who was totally controlled by his house-companions.

Oy.

Well - if true - the old saying holds:

"There's no fool like an old fool."

I guess stories like this beat trivia like Yemen.

Grant, if not for such trivia, boards like this would not exist.
