Thanks to Joe Field of Flying Colors Comics in Concord, California, we have this rare treat: an interview with Mark from the Wonderful World of Comics Convention in Oakland, California (back before the title was shortened to the much catchier "WonderCon") in 1988. I was at this show, just a kid with a backpack full of comics to get signed, taking the BART train back home with my Dad, explaining why the Super Powers Batmobile I'd bought for ten dollars was really a good deal (which it was).
Anyway, here's Mark, talking about the state of Marvel, the New Universe and Captain America in '88:
I don't have much more insight to bestow here, save for wondering how different the world of comics might look today if Mark hadn't left us so soon. I have no doubt it would be better, that's for sure.
Mostly, it was just good to see my friend again, and I wanted to share that with you.
