Stan Lee on Alan Thicke’s television talk show Thicke of the Night, January 17, 1984.
Comic books had a previous reputation as being childish, immature, and encouraging violence. Alan Thicke was an individual who did not see comic books in a great light, arguing that some of the comics are misogynistic. Stan Lee states that comics are good for teaching kids to read, but Thicke does not quite agree. Thicke wished Lee the best of luck in getting the bomics to other forms of media, in which he most likely saw that Lee was successful by the end of his life.
