Todd McFarlane Discusses Stan Lee’s Influence On His Career

In light of Stan Lee’s 94th Birthday, legendary writer-artist in his own right, Todd McFarlane (“Spawn”), publicly reflected on the immense influence the Marvel Comics veteran had on his career.

McFarlane wrote in a post to his official Facebook page, “Happy birthday to the GREAT Stan Lee !! He’s 94 years young today. I’ve known and worked with Stan for a large portion of my life and I’ve been VERY grateful for that.”

He continued, “I learned many lessons from him over the years, but one that still sticks with me from our first meeting was how he treated his fans! He made (and still does) EVERY ONE of his fans feel SPECIAL! He always has an encouraging word and such enthusiasm (even at 94 years old) which make him that much more AWESOME!!”

“A while back I did a reenactment video of our first meeting and I wanted to share it again…Stan has been a HUGE inspiration to me and continues to inspire SO many others. Happy Birthday Stan the Man!!”
