With the end of the Spider-Man comic strip, SyFy took a look back at the friendly neighborhood hero.
Stan Lee’s passing last November left a giant hole in the hearts of comic book fans around the world. Kevin Feige recently confirmed that there are a finite number of banked Stan Lee cameos left in the upcoming MCU films, and when those run out, fans will no doubt feel the loss even more. (Right now it sort of seems like Lee’s maybe just yukking it up in the Quantum Realm with our other post-snap heroes, making jokes and probably comforting Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.)
So it’s infinitely saddening to hear that another Marvel tradition begun by Lee — and involving one of Lee’s greatest creations — is coming to an end just months after the comic legend’s death: The first-ever Spider-Man newspaper comic strip will cease publication this week after four decades.
