Catherine Schuller-Gruenwald Appearance for Back Issue signing @ ForbiddenPlanet
See more details and GET TICKETS at link below Description: Forbidden Planet will be hosting a signing appearance of "The Editor's Issue" of Back Issue with Catherine Schuller-Gruenwald, widow of Senior Executive Editor of Marvel Comics (1978-1996). Catherine is the keeper of the flame and put together an intense article that demonstrates the Gru's contribution to the comic industry and how there will never be another editor quite like him again. Passionate, thorough and driven, Mark was the editor's editor and truly cared about contributing significantlly to the profession he loved so much. His untimely passing only makes us appreciate his legendary status and miss his truly remarkable accomplishments even more. There are a limited number of Back Issues available that day, so reserve yours and come meet Catherine and she'll sign it. Also available are 20 tribute posters ($20 complete with seal and limited edition number and Catherine's signature) that were created by Marvel to commemorate the 20th year anniversary of his leap into the other realm. "That whole "till death do us part" promise in the standard wedding vows doesn't really hold true when it comes to Mark," quips Catherine. Not only did she have to execute his final wishes when his will stated that he be cremated and his ashes stirred into a comic book, but the spirit of the man lives on. Another treat will be the unveiling of the commissioned work that Catherine had created by painter David Banegas for the auction to raise money for the Mark Gruenwald Scholarship for the Arts at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh. First fifty people will also receive a bonus color copy of the illustration used for the June 2016 Flag Day/birthday tribute invite and drawn by his nephew, Ed Steckley. "In his dreams he ran with the superheroes; in his life he showed us what a true hero could be." Reserve your copy today. Portion of the proceeds go toward the Mark Gruenwald Scholarship for the Arts. See more details and RSVP at link below
