    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.

    Fantastic look at how DC Comics came about (while completely omitting Canada's role in the Superman story) and the impact comics played throughout the 20th Century and beyond. Probably the best role that Ryan Reynolds has played so far, as an off camera narrator. Love the story on that hack Wertham's impact on comic book industry (Seduction of the Innocent). Thankfully just about everything he asserted regarding the relation to comics and children growing up to become delinquents can now be blamed on MTV instead.

    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.

    Still a Marvel guy and will stay that way for now. Good look at how things got started but as it goes over the last 20-30 years it shows how DC is just not what it used to be ... always playing catch up with the rest besides Batman

    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.
