Audience Reviews for Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics

This documentary is well made but can only really outline the history of this iconic company and its creations in a short running time. Sadly those who this will likely appeal to will already know much of what is contained but it is still quite entertaining. I just wish this had been envisioned as a much longer mini series so more time could be devoted to each era and the various imprints.

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. Rental.

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.
