Today I am thinking of Stan Lee on his birthday. A funny and sweet man that always asked me if I was looking for any work- to just give him a call. He said this to me a few dozen times over the years. Never had to but appreciated the offer each and every time.

ACTUALLY, I love the whole "anyone can be Spider-Man" thing Stan Lee supports it and seeing a black kid looking up to Miles as his hero or a girl looking up to Gwen as her hero is the best thing ever. https://t.co/CtQDwx6HYK pic.twitter.com/zmv7nMAgP8

None of the kids wanted toys for Christmas this year, they just wanted cash. Understandable, but cash as a gift, while practical, always feels impersonal, so I made special packaging. Went over well pic.twitter.com/urXVCHtDyW

We have now entered the Twilight Zone, a.k.a. the 6 days between Christmas and New Year's. Anything is possible. All known laws of human existence do not apply until Wednesday. Best of luck to you all.
