Description: A portrait of one of the most influential Marvel senior executive editors, Mark Gruenwald, alongside Captain America and adorned with covers of Marvel Comic books that he had a heavy influence on.  Mark was put in charge of The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Spider Woman, and What If from the year 1982 until his sudden untimely death in 1996.

In 1997, his ashes were mixed at a printing plant in Canton, Ohio, for use in "Squadron Supreme," a reprint of a limited edition 1985 comic. His desire that his ashes be made part of a comic book was known to many people, including his widow, Catherine.

This 20 year tribute to Mark Gruenwald painting comes with an optional autograph stamped document of Mark Gruenwald's commemorative signature with his ashes in the ink. This is Catherine's way of continuing his legacy. 

Artist bio: David Banegas is a Bolivian born artist, specializing in action painting. David is best known for his colorful portraits of Hollywood’s historic and contemporary A-listers such as Marilyn Monroe, Heath Ledger, and Johnny Depp.
