love Neil Gaiman's work. I have been enjoying the MCU alot and will miss Lee's cameos. I usually like Maher's views but in this case I can't agree with either one. This is a time when if you can't say something nice...

Maher is too smug to watch. Ego out the anus.


Three guys I admire - Neil Gaiman, Bill Maher, and Stan Lee - don't agree with each other? How terrible!
They're all in the entertainment industry and, while I've enjoyed all of their contributions, they've contributed nothing of lasting value to society. I'd trade the lot of them for one Elon Musk or Steve Jobs.

Ooh I don’t know... Stan Lee and Marvel are no small accomplishment, and Neil Gaiman is a wonderful writer. I have a lot of respect for literary and artistic accomplishment.

Um, dude, you're way off base. Technology is not the only way to make a lasting contribution.


Triggered much, lol.

I didn't care about Stan Lee when he was alive. I don't care about Stan Lee now that he is dead.
Frankly, I kind of lean towards Bill on this. Childish things are for children. But I won't go ALL the way there because, to each his or her own. There are worse things to become fixated on than superheroes. Like . . . Religion?

The whole thing is reminiscant of when Steve Jobs kicked the bucket. Praise the brains behind the inventor of the toys we all love. The fact that he (and Lee) tended to behave monopolisticly . . . Yeah, let's leave that out.

If you think Maus or Persepolis are childish, then I dare say you had a much more mature childhood than most. smile008.gif

@TheMiddleWay rolls eyes

@Mb_Man Rollin' 'em right back atcha.


I don't have a fragile ego - I thought Maher's comments were funny.

Neil spoke the truth. Stan Lee impacted generations. Bill will be forgotten once his show is cancelled.


Oh, Bill. he pisses me off sometimes. He pushes it sometimes. He has given me fits over jokes about women. He is a very intelligent and funny attention whore. Many children that would not read, read graphic novels. Many smart but lonely children read them too. Stan was a story man for the well-loved Spiderman and many others. People in art should me celebrated. I think the stereotyping of smart people buying comic books as kids has a grain of truth.


Aw, poor Bill, was no one paying attention to you?


Bill Maher just says things for attention.
