Marvel Comics is a name known around the world, and one of the people who helped make it what it was was writer/editor Mark Gruenwald. In the '80s and '90s he helped fan the flames of the mighty brand - but in 1996 his life was cut short, much to the loss of family, friends, and all of us fans. But his energy and passion lives on in the people that knew him, and now some of his closest - including his widow Catherine Gruenwald - took part in an hour-long rememberance of Mr. Gruenwald, and the Marvel bullpen at the time.

Popverse filmed this and many other panels at New York Comic Con this year (see the complete line-up here), which you can watch by becoming a Popverse member at the 'Fan' level (or higher).
