Comic Book Confidential Blu-ray

Posted October 18, 2012 09:35 PM by Ryan Seiler

Strand ReleasingStrand Releasing is bringing director Ron Mann's Comic Book Confidential to Blu-ray. The documentary features interviews from comic book icons such as Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Frank Miller as well, as an introduction by Kevin Smith. Comic Book Confidential blasts onto shelves December 4th.

Comic Book Confidential is a feature length documentary that profiles twenty two of the most significant artists and writers working in comic books, graphic novels and strip-art in North America today. In an entertaining and informative combination of interviews, historical footage and state-of-the-art animation techniques, Comic Book Confidential provides a positive answer to that burning existential question of the late twentieth century first posed by Zippy the Pinhead: Are we having fun yet?

The film emerged as comics were enjoying a popular renaissance, when Frank Miller was redefining the Batman mythos in the mainstream, and scores of independent artists found their unique voices in the burgeoning aftermath of the underground comix explosion of the '60s and early '70s. Mann's irreverent sensibilities are perfectly suited to this graphically kinetic history of comic books from the early '30s to the late '80s, itself presented as a graphic hybrid of comic art, archival footage, and lively interviews. All of the major players are included from each era, and Mann's masterstroke--having latter-day comics innovators read from their work--makes for some delicious storytelling straight from the source. Stories from each featured artist are included as another DVD bonus, making this a must-have document for any serious devotee of the medium.

Special Features:
  • Introduction by Kevin Smith
  • Interview with Ron Mann
  • Over 40 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage Including: Sergio Aragones, Carl Barks, Robert & Sophie Crumb, Jules Feiffer, Drew Friedman, Dave Gibbons, Archie Goodwin, Harvey Kurtzman, Caryn Leschen, Lee Mars, Paul Mavrides, Diane Noomin, Gary Panter, Harvey Pekar, Trina Robbins, Gilbert Shelton, Julius Schwartz, Bill Sienkiewicz, Ron Turner, Robert Williams, S. Clay Wilson, Al Williamson
  • Original Comic Book Confidential Promo Comic
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • The Balloon Pops: Comic Book Confidential by Geoff Pevere

I'll have to check this out, I'm a big comic book fan. And it has Stan Lee & Jack Kirby to boot.

@d5680 - there's a lot of focus on underground "comix" of the 60s-80s. If you're looking for a Stan Lee/Jack Kirby documentary, this ain't it.

This is a solid documentary on the history of comics. Yes, the segments on the underground comics of the 60's and 70's is more extensive that of other era's and genres.

It's too bad that the original filmmakers, if at all possible, could had added content covering the 90's and 2000's. I'd love to see industry insights on how the era of big comic book movies, manga, anime, the new indies, the comic-book crash of the mid 90's, and the SD Comic-Con influenced comics in that time period.
