Charlton Comics: The Movie (2017)

It's been called the 3 legged dog of comics, and the scrappy, street-fighting cousin of Marvel and DC. Maybe you've heard of it? ...probably not. But, you do know the industry legends that called it home. This is Charlton Comics.

This is a documentary film about the story of Charlton Comics; Derby, CT's infamous comic book company that launched legends. Charlton employed guys like Steve Ditko and Dick Giordano. Ditko went on to co-create Spider-Man. Giordano, a Charlton editor, became a legend as an executive at DC comics. But that's just a taste of the list. A few other names you know are: Denny O'Neil, Bob Layton, Paul Kupperberg, Joe Sinnott, Roy Thomas, Frank McLaughlin, John Byrne and even Neal Adams. That's just scratching the surface. Now their characters are a different entity of their own. "The Watchmen," a critically acclaimed and hugely influential comic that was adopted into a movie in 2009, was based on Charlton Comics characters from their Action Hero Line. This documentary will explore the origin, raise and fall, and even the resurgence of the little comic book company that offers an extraordinary piece of pop culture history, but has nearly been forgotten.
