Good look at the history of DC Comics. I've always been a Marvel guy myself, but it's still an interesting movie. Follows DC from when it was founded all the way up to recent history with movies like "Dark Knight." Not a bad watch if your into comics.

A breezy look at the history of DC Comics, which likely won't tell you a lot you don't already know if you're already a comic fan, but could be very informative for the novice. Well worth a look ether way for the various folks reminiscing in their own words.

Pretty good overall doc on the comic book business as well as DC comics. Bogs down in fews spots but is also loaded with great detail about characters and the people who create them.

Fantastic, informative, and interesting. After watching this I have a serious hankering to re-watch the mentioned movies, and to find a similar doc. on Marvel comics.

"One day the greatest writer of all time with join up with the greatest artist of all time and create something. And it will be called a comic book"

It's quite touching to see the passion poured into DC's most iconic characters and fascinating to see their development and ever-changing relevance over time.

As detailed as the 90-minute gestation permits, this delightful retrospective of one of literature's most enduring publishing houses is a must for fans of these enduring superheroes.

Very good overview of their history, good to see them mention Marvel for a little bit. all encompassing and informative.

Very interesting and informative. Great for and non-fans of comics alike.

Quite interesting! For once it's not all about the golden age, it goes through the history of DC up to the late noughties. A wide range of writers and artist give their views on DC. Not fundamental but worth the watch.

A must see for comic fans and neophytes.

As a self-serving look at the history of just one of the two major publishers in the comic industry, it shouldn't come as much surprise to hear that a few small liberties are taken with this short history lesson. The broader picture rings true, though, and the producers of this documentary clearly took great pains to ask the right questions of the right people. Long-term fans will be pleased to see appropriate representatives from every significant moment in the company's history in living color, though some of the more embattled personalities such as Alan Moore and Frank Miller only appear via ancient promotional videos. Fresh geeks who don't already know the story will see their horizons broadened by some of the pains and issues DC has confronted and endured over the years, while more seasoned readers will enjoy the refresher course and possibly even learn a thing or two themselves. Worth watching once, at least.

Filled with stunning vintage footage, from the 30's onward, and interviews with comic book professionals from all eras whom I've never seen on video, this film is the ultimate treat for comic book fans. Great motion graphics bring the iconic art to life. Highly recommended.

A good little documentary about the lesser of the two giants of the industry.

I guess a lot of this stuff is crap you already know, but here it is in about as compact as possible while doing their best to pat each other on the backs while also doing their damnedest to not use the word "Marvel".
