Product Description

Though aimed at those fastidious comic book collectors who spend exorbitant sums for old {@DC} first editions (only to leave them unread and wrapped in plastic), {#Comic Book Confidential} manages to convey the fanaticism and fun of this hobby to non-aficionados. Canadian director {$Ron Mann} traces the history of the comic book industry, the idiotic purging of so-called violent comics in the 1950s, and the growth of the collectibles industry. Throughout the film, any comic book which does not meet {$Mann}'s exacting standards is trashed ({@Dell} and {@Harvey}, beware!) Among those interviewed are {@Marvel Comics} mavens {$Stan Lee} and {$Jack Kirby} and {@EC} mentors {$William M. Gaines} and {$Will Elder}. The underground "comix" movement is represented by {$Robert Crumb}. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
