An interesting look at the history of comics. - Comic Book Confidential review by Shatner's Bassoon

Spoiler Alert
01/02/2006

Comic Book Confidential is a great introduction to the history of American comic books and graphic novels. As a documentary it's a little rough around the edges, but the quirky way the topic is presented works really well and is definitely worth a look if you're interested in the history of comic books.
