"Comic Books Unbound"

Anybody get Starz? "Comic Books Unbound," examining comic books' growing power in Hollywood, airs Tuesday night on Starz. I watched a DVD screener of the show last night. It's interesting enough, charting the history of comics in movies since the days of the old Superman movie serials. Among those interviewed: Stan Lee, director Guillermo Del Toro, producer Michael Uslan and Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige. Also a couple of my favorite all-time artists, Neal Adams and Jim Steranko. Guess Frank Miller is reclusive; there was a lot of talk about him as far as his Batman work, "Sin City," his upcoming "Spirit" movie, etc., but he didn't appear himself.
