CINCINNATI -- There’s a new holiday to celebrate in the Queen City.

Mayor John Cranley declared Sept. 23 as “Stan Lee Day” to commemorate the day the legendary comic book creator will visit the city for the Cincinnati Comic Expo on Sept. 23 - 25at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

Lee’s appearance at the convention has generated excitement amongst comic lovers and Marvel enthusiasts alike since the announcement in July.

Lee’s appearance at the 7th annual Expo will be his only one in the Midwest for 2016.

The 93-year-old only has three appearances after the Cincinnati Comic Expo, two on the east coast and one on the west coast, before he turns 94 in December.

Stan Lee fans can purchase tickets for the “Stan Lee Experience,” which includes one autograph as well as a professional photo-op. Friday, Saturday and Sunday packages are available for $350. Tickets to the Stan Lee Experience do not include admission into the Expo.
