Plus in part one they explore the homoerotic aspect of Wonder Woman bondage fetish and the relationship between Batman and Robin!
I'm nearly through the second hour and their hasn't been much new information or insight. Still, it hasn't really been organized in this way and it is interesting.
Watched it on PBS last week. Nice to see Lynda Carter looking so good.
Yes, Lynda Carter looks fantastic. You'd never guess she's in her 60s.
A lot of classic comic book artists were interviewed, some of who are no longer with us.
I watched it on the DVR this weekend.
I agree with R1 that there's really not much new information there for those who already know basic comic book history. But it's pretty well done overall, and they did interview a lot of pretty big names in the industry.
I want to have hot sex with Phil Jiminez.
So, I know very little about comic books, nothing about super heros, apparently I could start with this.
What turned me off at first and for always...I hate big muscles. They look yucky.
There was little about women in comics, other than Wonder Woman.
R6, just in case you didn't know, Phil Jimenez is gay.
Nance from Delray, what about women in comics do you think was missing? They at least had Ramona Fradon (Aquaman) front and center. And was Trina Robbins there? (No Andy Mangels, thank god, in the first hour at least.)

Let me guess: Your peas can't touch the mashed potatoes or you won't eat it.
I can't believe PBS was running this. As if we don't get enough Superheroes on every other channel. Just incredibly uninteresting.

That fact became clear in about one second.
