John Schnepp was awesome. I really loved his enthusiasm for comic books, and I really loved the fact that he made “The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?” He was a fun and likable person and one of the best hosts of “Collider Videos” and “Collider Heroes.” I will miss him. Rest In Peace Schnepp.
