In October 2013 PBS premiered the three part documentary Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle examining the dawn of the comic book genre,  its growth into a true American mythology, and the evolution of heroic characters to other forms of media.   The various interviews with industry insiders like Stan Lee, Joe Simon and Jerry Robinson is worth the ticket for admission.  Check it out the link below.

About aritter2014

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
