In Memoriam: Stan Lee was a man who believed that if you were able to entertain people, than you were doing a good thing. He excelled at entertaining. He helped make comic books fun, with characters like Spider-Man. He helped evolve the comic book industry and helped evolve the entertainment industry overall. His smiling countenance and New York accent will be missed every time we see a new Marvel movie.
Excelsior! Stan Lee Excelsior! You will be dearly missed.
On a brighter note, we learned that we will be getting a Christmas episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is on Netflix.

The Library of the Dead will be adapted for TV. Read the following synopsis for the first book in the series by Glenn Cooper. Assigned to the high-profile “Doomsday” serial killer case, FBI agent Will Piper is hitting dead-end after dead end. The victims seem to have nothing in common: age, background, or even the way they die. All that connects them is a postcard each received in the mail announcing his or her date of death—all sent from Las Vegas, where a brilliant computer scientist leads a double life. Just when agent Piper finds a credible lead, he’s removed from the case. Continuing the investigation on his own, he must outwit a ruthless team of covert operatives from Area 51 protecting the government’s greatest secret. From a medieval monastery to a cutting-edge government laboratory, Library of the Dead delivers a richly detailed, thought-provoking exploration of fate, predestination, and the choices we make in life.
