Amazing Documentary Oct. 20 2013
By Chongo - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I caught the last hour of this the night it aired on PBS. Daneel Olivaw's review is perfect & spot on. It truly is an all encompassing look into the comic book industry & all the mythology surrounding superheroe's & all it's costumed brethren. This really delves deeply into comic books, the roots of this graphic fiction medium, & it's long lasting impact in popular culture. Personally this is one of the best documentary's on the subject since "Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics" from 2010. Everyone should see this.

A History Lesson Oct. 26 2013
By E. Joseph Delaney - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is the kind of product that should be shown in colleges teaching the Comic Arts and Writing or in Film Schools. Liev Schreiber narrates the nearly 3 hours of material which begins during the Golden Age of comics and runs right up to the current era. It is a fast moving and in-depth piece that to those of us making our own comic works is also inspirational. To comic fans, this is a terrific addition to their DVD collections right up there with Comic Book Confidential, Comic Book Heroes Unmasked, The Mind of Alan Moore, Todd McFarlane-The Devil You Know, and Will Eisners doc on Sequential Art. Add all of these to your comic collection and be inspired as you create your own piece of comic book history. Excelsior!

the best superhero documentary to date! April 11 2014
By superman fan - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a great film that examines every comic book Superhero and their influence to the comic industry. Without the influence of the first Superhero Superman we would have nothing! The impact of the character Superman inspired people to come up with their own Superheroes that people love today, so give Superman a little more respect. Based on my opinion Superhero's are not just for kids, but are for adults as well. Kids may ware Superhero clothes and watch cartoons and movies, but they do not read comic books anymore. Adults Do! If you walk into any comic shop, you will not find a single child in there, except adults. This movie explains everything you need to know about comic book history and is a wonderful dvd to add to any Superhero fans collection. Just to point it out there they show very little photo's toward the end of the film, towards our current time from the movie Man of Steel but say nothing about it and say in no way how it impacted the comic book world like they do with the other superhero movies, You know why? Man of steel was a horrible film that ruined Superman, had no character study, a horrible plot, and was about dumb and unnecessary, non stop fighting.

Leave it to PBS to get it right Feb. 4 2014
By Johnny Rags - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I originally saw this on PBS and I was amazed at how good it was, so I had to add it to my collection. If you think comics are kid stuff, this will change your mind.

This is very well done, intelligent and respectful story of comics from the begging in the 30's all the up through modern day blockbuster movies. But its more than a retelling of comic book superhero history. Its intelligent and insightful, explaining how historical events and societal attitudes influenced the storylines and characters. This doc makes it clear that writers and artists werent writing kids entertainment, rather, illustrating and interpreting issues of the day. War, racism, you name it, were all discussed within comic pages, making those topics palatable to young audiences.

If you're a comic fan, I guarantee you'll love it. If you aren't, you'll come away with an understanding of why comic are and important artistic medium.

A good documentary of why we love super heroes Jan. 10 2014
By Jeffrey R. Young - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Originally through comic books and now through digital media I get my fix of hero (make that super hero) worship. It gives us all something to strive for and live up to. Recommended.
