The universe of DC comics at its best and less best
26 March 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary that highlights the uniqueness of the mythology behind DC comics and its ever growing universe.It contains numerous interviews with big names from the industry that explain the origins of the company( thus resulting the name of the documentary )and its evolution throughout history.With the expansion of the mythology to TV,movies and video games it's important to see the extent at which the story evolved through the comics and the importance of this medium in general in providing great stories.Therefore this is a great example of documentaries being attractive to a core audience (of comic readers) as well as to the general public who just want to find out more about the mythology of their favorite character(s).
