GR+ Live at SDCC 2015: Grilling Mark Waid on The Avengers and Star Wars

What do you get when you cross Star Wars' Princess Leia, Marvel's The Avengers and Archie from Archie Comics? Mark Freakin' Waid, that's what. A 30-year veteran of the comics industry and Eisner Award winner, Waid has had a hand in shaping characters everyone knows and loves. Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, The Flash, Daredevil and more count him as friend - or they would, if they weren't fictional characters.

The point is, Waid's work is some of the best in the business, and GamesRadar+ jumped at the opportunity to interview him at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 (opens in new tab), where we learned more about the reasons behind the ethnic and gender diversity Marvel's All-New, All-Different Avengers, the end of the Princess Leia comic, and the Archie reboot. Check it out!
