Storyline

Cameras panned over individual panels from stories selected from DC Comics while voiceover actors read the dialogue seen in the balloons. Comic books chosen for this treatment included "Adam Strange," (Gardner Fox), "Nutsy Squirrel" (Woody Gelman) and "Sugar and Spike" (Sheldon Mayer). After story recommendations by Larry Hama, hundreds of pages from DC's vaults were photostatted and then recolored with luminescent dyes. There was no animation and no alteration of the original B&W panels. Complete stories were shown, panel by panel, and most came from back issues of "Sugar and Spike." Some "Adam Strange" and "Swamp Thing" stories had more extensive production work with the addition of sound effects and music. The live-action opening showed kids arriving at a store to buy comic books. Written by Bhob <bhob2@earthlink.net>

Director of Video Comics
26 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Actually Dana was the Producer of Video Comics, not the Director. Because of technical problems with the post production, she asked me to fill in as Director for the completion of all the shows. I think initially there were about 70 Video Comics shows and they were edited over and over again to make many different combinations. This was a project that I worked on after directing many of the live QUBE programs around 1977 through 1979. These programs included Talent Search, which was produced by Bob Morton, later Producer for the Letterman Show, and Celebration, QUBE's biggest budget show which was hosted by Rob Weller, and also Columbus Alive, which was produced by Ron Giles who later became Executive Producer of QVC.
