Stan Lee & Joe Sinnott Receive Military Honors at RICC 2016

Press Release:

United States Military Honors Comic Book Legends Stan Lee And Joe Sinnott At Rhode Island Comic Con

Providence, Rhode Island – On Veterans Day, representatives of the United States Army and Navy, along with chapters of the American Legion, the Marine Corps League, and Texas State Guard, surprised comic book icons Stan Lee and Joe Sinnott with military accolades.

Awards of appreciation and recognition were presented to Mr. Lee, 93, who served as a Sergeant in the US Army Signal Corps during World War II, at his VIP panel Friday night. Army Captain James R. Whitney, Navy Chief Petty Officer Kurt Anderson, their respective staffs and several former US Service members, imparted the honors.

Army Staff Sergeant Joshua Mitchell tendered an American flag to Mr. Lee at the request of Major General Anthony C. Funkhouser. The flag was flown in his honor on the occasion of Veterans Day “for his faithful service to our Nation as a United States Soldier during World War II.” MG Funkhouser is the Commanding General, Center for Initial Military Training, US Army Training and Doctrine Command, Fort Eustis, VA.

“Next to my marriage and the birth of my daughter. This is the most sensational moment in my life. I will never forget this…” Stated a very emotional Mr. Lee, “It is such an honor which I’m sure I don’t deserve.”

000_ricc-sinnott-tucciMr. Sinnott’s awards were handed out at a dinner attended by his family, friends and fans later on that evening. His flag was presented on behalf of MG Funkhouser who bestowed the title of “SEABEE For Life” to the sailor, 90.

After his older brother Sgt. Jack Sinnott, was tragically killed in action in France, Mr. Sinnott joined the US Navy Seabees shortly after his 18th birthday. He served in the bloody World War II Battle of Okinawa rising to the rank of Machinist Mate 3rd Class.

As restaurant patrons applauded with a standing ovation, the legendary artist who created thousands of comics for over sixty years, humbly confessed, “I’m speechless, I really am. This is just unbelievable. One of the greatest honors I’ve ever had. Thank You!”

In addition to the flags, certificates, challenge coins, plaques and “swagger sticks” of appreciation were also awarded to both veterans. “They got me mixed up with someone else” Mr. Lee said in disbelief. “But I can’t thank you enough and I will never forget this moment… We have the greatest military in the whole world.”

As uniformed service members past and present presented arms to a saluting Mr. Lee, he exclaimed to the teary-eyed audience, “If someone isn’t filming this, I’ll never talk to you again!”

George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher makes con debut at Clermont Comic Con

George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher is an American extreme metal vocalist for the American death metal band Cannibal Corpse and the lesser-known melodic death metal band Paths of Possession. He previously recorded two albums with Florida’s Monstrosity before leaving and joining Cannibal Corpse in late 1995, replacing former vocalist, Chris Barnes, who is now the vocalist for Six Feet Under. He also provided guest vocals for New York technical death metal band Suffocation on the songs “Reincremation” and “Mass Obliteration” from their debut album, Effigy of the Forgotten, as well as guest vocals for California deathcore band Suicide Silence, on the song “Control” from their fourth album, You Can’t Stop Me. Fisher also performed guest vocals on Job for a Cowboy’s 2014 album Sun Eater, on the song “The Synthetic Sea”. As a death metal vocalist, Fisher employs the “death growl” extended vocal technique.

Fisher voices the Metal Masked Assassin in the Adult Swim animated series Metalocalypse which airs at midnight on the Cartoon Network. He was also the inspiration for the character Nathan Explosion, the lead vocalist for Dethklok. Nathan shares a similar physical appearance to George, headbangs in a windmill fashion, and also lived in Florida, although Fisher was born in Baltimore and moved to Florida later in life.

Blizzard Entertainment implemented a non-player character named “Gorge the Corpsegrinder” into World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King after his interest in the game was revealed in interviews. George was invited on stage and performed at Blizzcon 2011 with Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftain. He was also seen attending the Convention as a participant.
