Steve Thompson's rating of the film Comic Book Confidential

Ron Mann's history of the American comic book feels fresh and relevant despite being over a quarter-century old. Particularly illuminating on the social background to the medium's development, the film carries just the right balance between documentary analysis and a visceral and joyful immersion in the imaginative and often subversive world created by the comic book artists and writers.
