Well done informative series that's educational, historical, and fun!
18 December 2017 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

I watch a lot of "AMC" series especially like "Comic Book Men" as I like being a nerd and geek and a fan of comics as it brings memories back of being a kid. I for one am also a fan of pop culture and a history buff, and this series covers it all. As interviews are featured with comic book editors of D.C. and Marvel and pop historians give their take as how comics influenced fans and changed the culture of the world. Really you as the viewer learn stuff that you may not even know! And the footage is reacted to look like it created past times that the narrator talks about. Each episode also features a different comic character or a different topic that involves the comic book world. This is a series that "AMC" can expand on and make more episodes because the universe of comic characters and comic books is big. I hope to see more of this.
