From the spring 1952 issue of Suspense #16
Stan Winston R.I.P.By now we’ve all heard the crummy news about Stan Winston… and while I’m not really sure what else I can possibly add that somebody else hasn’t already mentioned, I will say that I was one of the fortunates lucky enough to actually stand in the presence of this legend, so here’s my tiny tale: This was either at G-Con or Fangoria in 2003 or 2004 (I’ve been to waaaay too many cons.) Wherever, it was in Burbank CA, and Stan was coming out the front door as the con was ending... I quickly snapped this pic of him giving someone an autograph... he walked by me... I shook his hand... he said hello as he got into his limo... and that was pretty much that.
But those 5 or 6 seconds of my life are ones I will cherish forever. R.I.P.
