I got to ask the comic book legend a few questions leading up to Halloween and Comikaze!

First I asked Stan what he was most excited about this year’s Comikaze;

“One of the things I am most excited about for the expo this weekend is to see all the creative costumes fans come up with and to help crown the winner of our huge cosplay contest!

I also asked him who he would be dressing up as for Halloween;

I will once again be dressing up as one of the most fun costumes I know, Stan Lee!”
