Writers and artists in Singapore mourn the passing of comic book legend Stan Lee


When bookseller Kenny Chan heard of the passing of his hero, Marvel comics creator Stan Lee, the cry that came to mind was: “Excelsior no more!”

“Excelsior”, a Latin word meaning “ever upward”, was the catchphrase of Lee, the man behind Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk and countless other superheroes, who died aged 95 on Monday (Nov 12).
