Fun Facts About Jim Lee from WonderCon 2013
On Saturday, March 30th, 2013 Panel:
Spotlight On Jim Lee!

TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3830 -   Fun Facts About Jim Lee from WonderCon 2013 - Guest blog by Tina LoSasso.

Some random facts we learned about Comic Book Artist Jim Lee from the man himself.

The always gracious Mr. Lee answered fan questions and drew (no Marvel requests please!) for 45 minutes despite being 15 minutes late for his Spotlight panel at WonderCon Anaheim 2013. Here are some tidbits we learned that made us smile:

As a kid, Jim loved Jonny Quest! So did we:)

Jim de-stresses from the challenges of the business-side of comics by spending time with his family - especially watching romantic comedies with his wife - her choice! He's seen them all -- "The Vow" and "The Notebook", but when he took his wife to see Iron Man, she feel asleep!

He did not like drawing Spider-Man because the webbing is hard to do and takes a while. If you get it wrong, you have to start all over!

If there were a movie of his life, he'd want Steven Yeun (Glenn, The Walking Dead) to portray him.

His first encouragement to draw was in school. A substitute teacher caught him sketching and grabbed the paper. About to ball it up and throw it away, she took a quick look ... and hung it on the classroom board.

He likes Best Buy.

Note From Michael:  Jim's photos from this panel and another panel I caught him at, can be found at my special photo album titled:  WonderCon 2013 Saturday

When the videos from the two panels are uploaded, they will be found at my YouTube Channel, HamerskyOnComics.

Also, Jim Lee was the featured cover artist for the 2013 WonderCon Program Book, as seen to the left.  I'll be posting a few of these for sale at my online comic book shop soon, (at ComicBooksCircus.com)
