If you’re a geek, nerd, otaku, or whatever then you definitely know about San Diego Comic Con. Scratch that, even if you’re not into comics or consider yourself a geek then you STILL probably know about Comic Con. It’s become a pop cultural mecca.
People from all over the country (and probably the world) congregate in San Diego for this convention to celebrate the entertainment that they love. Movies and TV shows are previewed, limited release toys are available, and people work for months on costumes to showcase.
It’s nerdvana for a lot of fanboy and girls. But what is now a huge convention for over 100,000 people, used to be a much smaller affair strictly for people interested in comics as an art form.
Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope has some pretty big names that helped put this documentary together. Two of those names are Morgan Spurlock and Joss Whedon. There’s lots of commentary from the likes of Kevin Smith, Brian Michael Bendis, Grant Morrison, Robert Kirkman, and so many more.
I highly recommend it even if you’re not into documentaries. It’s well done and entertaining.
Unfortunately it looks like you have to have Hulu Plus to view it.
