Rembering Mark Gruenwald, Mike Wieringo
Marvel’s Tom Brevoort points out today is the day that two comic-book luminaries passed away: Marvel writer/editor Mark Gruenwald (1953-1996) and “Fantastic Four” and “Tellos” artist Mike Wieringo (1963-2007).
Both of these guys were among my favorites. Their work is top-notch, and those who knew them say that they were personally great guys as well.
Gruenwald, longtime writer of “Captain America,” was my favorite writer growing up, and a big part of why Cap is my favorite Marvel character.
Sadly, not much of his work is in print, though Marvel has brought the first 2/3 of his “Fighting Chance” storyline in Captain America — his final storyline — back into print, with plans for all of it. There’s also a recent hardcover collection available of his “Hawkeye” storyline. There are also collections of his first issues on the New Universe title “D.P. 7,” and the work many consider his best, “Squadron Supreme.”
