Scorpion

(no subject)

Last night caught a fine documentary on the History Channel called Comic Book Superheroes Unmasked. First, I was surprised they gave the subject two hours. Second, they had a *lot* of the biggest names in the industry. Even though they only got a short time with each of them, I think they did a fine job of giving an overview of the whole history of comic books, from the very beginning to the very recent. (OK, I think they could have mentioned the post-modernist boom of the nineties in more direct terms, but that's my sticking point. I taped the bastard, and while Magistrate has dibs on it, after that anyone is welcome to borrow it.
