With his hair slicked back and dyed gray for the day, and a trim gray mustache glued onto his upper lip, Jake was a tiny spitting image of the late Lee, from his aviator sunglass and green V-neck sweater to his cartooning pen and … [Read more...] about WonderCon 2019: 5 awesome opening day moments, from 9-year-old Stan Lee to the X-Men sneak peek and more

Antonia Noori Farzan, The Washington Post Published 6:03 am PST, Friday, February 22, 2019 When a small-town Arizona officer stopped a 12-year-old reporter who was chasing down a story tip on Monday, he probably had no idea what he was getting himself into. Hilde Lysiak, the preteen journalist whose exploits have inspired a Scholastic book series and an upcoming TV show, made a name for herself in 2016 by being the first to report on a grisly murder in her hometown, then firing back at critics who suggested that a 9-year-old girl shouldn't be hanging around crime scenes.
