Anyway, moseyed in here to post this, time to meet Stan Lee if ever possible.
Comic Book Legend Stan Lee
I Got a Pacemaker ...
BUT I AIN'T DEAD!
Spider-Man, Bruce Banner, Daredevil, The Avengers and the X-Men can all rest easy ... 'cause their fearless creator Stan Lee is alive and kickin' after getting a pacemaker implanted near his heart.
The 90-year-old comic book legend just fired off an AWESOME statement to fans after undergoing pacemaker surgery in L.A. last week, in which he proudly declares that he's not yet ready to become the Grimm Reaper's b*:
This is a dispatch sent from your beloved Generalissimo, directly from the center of Hollywood’s combat zone!
Now hear this! Your leader hath not deserted thee! In an effort to be more like my fellow Avenger, Tony Stark, I have had an electronic pace-maker placed near my heart to insure that I’ll be able to lead thee for another 90 years.
But fear thee not, my valiant warriors. I am in constant touch with our commanders in the field and victory shall soon be ours. Now I must end this dispatch and join my troops, for an army without a leader is like a day without a cameo!".

Should probably try to meet Larry Hama one of these days too.
If you didn't pick it up, G.I. Joe 188 was a decent story, but the great thing was the intro of THE RED SHADOWS, a very cruel and formidable enemy for Joe. Glad I caught that BFTB anniversary news so I knew to expect it. Didn't know it was all coming out this soon though.
