PBS has a great three-part series on superheroes which, if you’re any kind of fan—hardcore or casual, old or new—you should DROP EVERYTHING AND GO WATCH RIGHT NOW!!!
Ahem. Sorry to have lost my composure there for a moment BUT OMG IT ROCKS! It covers comic books from Superman in the 1930’s to last year’s Avengers movie, with lots of interviews and comments from writers, artists, actors, and other giants in the comic industry: Stan Lee, Chris Claremont, Frank Miller, Alan Moore…just too many to name.
