Good history of superheroes
Verified purchase
Okay, see, you will recognize lots of these historical facts if you are a fan of comic books. But there were still surprises here to be had, and I liked all of the interviews and I do sometimes put this on while I am cleaning the house. It's only two episodes, which is a bit of a bummer. I thought it's be at least four, but they are good long episodes. Happy overall.

Fascinating Insight

It’s a fascinating delve into the world of superhero comics and the inspiration behind them. Plus one of my heroes, the late-Jon Schnepp, makes an appearance that puts the cherry on top. 5/5
