George RR Martin's teenage fan letter to Stan Lee: "A masterpiece with one flaw" - The Guardian

I wouldn't do that.
Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when he heard giggling and chortling. Following the laughter took our inquisitive kitty to The Guardian site.  There he found a post about George R. R. Martin, one of his favorite authors.

The post by Sian Cain is about a letter then 16-year-old George R.R. Martin sent to Stan Lee about a 1964 issue of the Fantastic Four Marvel Comics. The letter and the response were published in a subsequent issue. In his letter  Mr. Martin tells Mr. Lee how great the comic is, but then he points out a problem with the plot. Mr. Lee doesn't mince words. He tells the teenager that he is right. There is indeed a plot problem.

Panzer says, "Boy, he was one brave kid to do that."

Note: This is a shortish post. A cup of tea should be enough for today's read.

To read the post, tootle over to George R. R. Martin
