Comments about PBS Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle DVD:

I have always loved superheroes since i was a kid. I love the stories behind them, from its humble beginnings to becoming a multi-billion dollar and cultural icon. This DVD teaches the novice and experts alike about the artist, writers and publishers behind our favorite Four-Colored Heroes. If you're like me, you should buy this wonderful DVD and the companion book and get SUPER EDUCATED!!

I loved it so much when I saw it on my local PBS channel, I had to order the video for my 11 year-old son to watch.

Comments about PBS Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle DVD:

I was so glad to see this as a three part documentary. The comic book evolution/revolution to graphic novels and then movies is a story worth telling and needs three episodes to get the essence across. While my personal need for a super hero to identify with has diminished with maturity, I still remember fondly how I thrilled at the new approach to drawing and writing and the imaginative story lines. This documentary covered the trends and certain specific characters along with the creators and the comic publishing industry. While it didn't cover all of my favorite comics it covered the main ones with insight and accuracy. The DVD Bonus section has a strong interview with Lynda Carter of Wonder Woman fame. Her comments were insightful and spoke to her understanding of her place as a female role model. Good work all around. My congratulations to the creators and staff.
