Stan Lee has dropped out of this weekend's Big Apple Comic Con citing "health issues," according to the New York City convention.
"Stan keeps to an amazing schedule and it seems to have taken its toll. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience but the show must go on."
Autographed memorabilia relating to Lee will still be sold at a Stan Lee Collectibles booth during the convention. The is convention is not offering refunds on admission tickets, but will offer refunds/exchanges for any advance Stan Lee autographs, photo ops, or swag bag pre-orders made.
In 2016, similiar health issues led Lee to cancel what was billed as his "final" apparance at Comic-Con International: San Diego. He had since resumed appearances, billing some of them as his "final" time at those conventions, including 2016's New York Comic Con.
