Storyline

Twenty years ago, seven superstar artists left Marvel Comics to create their own company, Image Comics, a company that continues to influence mainstream comics and pop culture to this day. Image began as more than just a publisher - it was a response to years of creator mistreatment, and changed comics forever. The Image Revolution tells the story of Image Comics, from its founders' work at Marvel, through Image's early success, company difficulties during the comics market implosion, and ultimately the publisher's new generation of properties like The Walking Dead. Filled with colorful characters, the film is a clarion call to artists to take control of their destiny. Written by Anonymous

Only for hardcore fans who probably know all this anyway
27 December 2013 | by CultcinemaDOTnetSee all my reviews

If ever there was an all style over substance documentary, this is it. The film follows the rise and fall of Image comics publication company, told from the people who started it. Mainly a talking heads feature, interviews are mixed with low quality scans of various comic book art that is stressful and tedious to read through.

Obviously not meant to be seen by anyone else than hardcore comic book fans who recognizes everyone on screen and associate them with their work, the film fails to properly establish who any of them are, and those who do not know are forced to believe that everyone are as great as they say they are. It runs through long lists of publications, as egos and built, bruised and broken, but ultimately the whole ordeal has the flavor of an internal business struggle that didn't deserve a whole feature documentary.
