    On November 12th 2018, Stan Lee, co-creator of iconic comic book characters Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America, the X-Men and Thor among others, died.  He was 95 years old.  When I heard about his passing, I wasn’t surprised, he wasn’t in great health, but I was saddened.  Not only do we share a love of comics, we shared a birthday, December 28th.  So, as a comic book fan and above all a Marvel comics fan, it was a sad day, but it brought back one of my favorite memories.

    As fall begins to take shape and celebrations commence, Day of the Dead looms ahead. While many may not know about this holiday or its origins, the recent blockbuster hit Coco and other mainstream media have commoditized death. However, what you see in Mexico today, on television in the United States or in the aforementioned movie is a fusion of prehispanic, colonial and European traditions.
