Rob on the screen

Remember what I said a few months ago about being filmed for a comic-book documentary? Well, The Legends Behind the Comic Books is finally done and I have a copy. I appear for one 10-second bite talking about Indians in comics.

It's actually a very good documentary. Comic-book guru Michael Uslan (Batman Begins) is a great narrator. True legends such as Stan Lee, Joe Simon, and Joe Kubert are joined by slightly younger legends such as Roy Thomas, Dick Giordano, and Denny O'Neil. Colorful props and scenery from the Montclair Art Museum fill in the background. And a little computer animation makes the whole thing pop.

Rob's rating:  8.5 of 10.

As far as I know, Legends isn't available to the public yet. I'll let you know if and when it becomes available. I recommend it to every fan of comics.
