Superheroes: A Never Ending Battle Review

SuperheroesANeverEndingBattleGot to check out the PBS’s three part documentary called Superheroes: A Never Ending Battle.  Am a fan of comic books (even if I only have a few) and there history.  This documentary covers the very beginning of how comic books came to, to their fall and right up to now a days with the blockbusters movies.  The doc is broken into to three time lines.  Part one starts from the very beginning in 1938 to 1958.  To were they are formed right up to the government regulation comes into play.  Part spans 1959 to 1977.  This one covers the space race, atomic age as well as the pop culture world that draws influence of of each other.  Part thee covers 1978 to now.  This one shows how the comic book world has become more adult and mainstream.  Talks about how big superhero movies, TV shows and video games are.  This part all so talks about how comics books have become digital.

This is one of the best well made documentaries I have ever seen.  The subject matter makes it even better.  You don’t even have to ever read a comic books to enjoy this.  Even if you ever seen a superhero movie or TV show (I am sure every one has) you would enjoy this just as much.  On a side note there is all so a companion book.  Which is called Superheroes!: Capes, Cowls and the Creation of Comic Book Culture.  This one will be added to my wish list.

Superheroes Review

Superheroes Just watched the new documentary called Superheroes.  It is not what you think.  It is about “real” life superheroes.  Mostly guys and a few ladies dress up in a costume and or a mask to fright crime.  I was thinking what you might be thinking, “these people must be a little off.”   Well some of them are a little more than off while others are more normal.  They have different stories how they became a superhero but the underline thread was they want to make things better.

While you don’t see them fight real bad guys.  It is more about there day to day going out on patrol.  By the end of the doc you get to see how they are heroes in their own way.  They give out food, water and other items to the homeless.  It is a interesting documentary but not for everyone.  How ever the main message is help out your fellow man.
