ONCE UPON A TIME THE SUPERHEROES ****½
Canada/France: Michel Viotte, 2002
ONCE UPON A TIME THE SUPERHEROES is a fascinating and seemingly overlooked documentary about the history, evolution and lasting legacy of comic book superheroes. This documentary film comprises of interviews with several key figures from comic industry giants DC and Marvel. Moreover, it showcases a treasure trove of superhero comic book art, animation and live action.
The Count's Verdict: Arguably the best documentary I've seen on the topic thus far.
