A Truly Under-Appreciated Art Form in Comics!
12 April 2019 | by SylSee all my reviews

The documentary should be mandatory viewing for those interested in the art of super heroes. The story of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and many others are examined here with plenty of commentary by experts, artists, writers and historians. The art of cartooning illustration is truly under-appreciated. This documentary addresses it as a serious subject. They include rare footage and stills of the pioneers and interviews with those who made it all possible.
